Baker Sofa
I have always seen the sofa described as being designed by Juhl "for Baker Furniture in the United States." The Vodder proto-type shown in the black and white photo at the Wright auction page is the first one I have seen described as not made by Baker (apart from the new releases from OneCollection). I guess that does not answer the question of why Vodder would be making a proto-type for a design if it was intended for Baker.

Ok, I get the historical signifigance and the obvious inherent value of the sofa, but am I the only one who thinks it looks absolutely tacky and wouldn't be caught dead with it in my living room?

auction tomorrow.
what do you think this will make at the auction?
the closest guess wins my respect as an amateur design freak/collector.
my guess: 28000

scandinavianbeast and waffle...
scandinavianbeast and waffle are both about right. A hammer price of $30,000 plus a 25% buyers premium gives a final price of $37,500. The buyer pays nearly what waffle guessed, the seller gets nearly what scandinavianbeast guessed. Wright keeps about $10,000.
