Beatiful sofa from Denmark. This sofa is designed by Sven Ellekaer and is part of the “Borneo” seating group by Komfort. It is made of solid teak and in good condition. The cushions are made of leather, which has patina and traces of use. Instead of making the filling of the cushions of foam, Komfort made a comfortable construction with springs inside the cushions. This original construction is still present.
