Marshmallow Sofa, Black/Brown/Caramel Mix Premium Leather
This sofa is the earliest manifestation of Pop Art in furniture design. With its unmistakable George Nelson Atomic style, it is routinely featured in pop art publications. Today the design has reached iconic status and it is seen in residential and commercial settings alike.
The Marshmallow sofa was designed in the “Atomistic” style that is recognized in other George Nelsons designs such as the ball clock. Atomistic design explodes its parts into separate, brightly colored elements. In the Marshmallow sofa, the elements are the cushions that have the appearance of hovering or floating over the frame. If you’ve ever had the opportunity to try out a Marshmallow sofa, you are aware by experience that comfort and whimsical design can coincide.

Split Grain Leather. On a very basic level, leather furniture consists of Split grain or Top Grain. Split Grain is the leather type used on mid price reproduction furniture and is sold in the U.S and Canada as 100% Genuine, Italian or European leather. Split Grain is the underside of the hide that has been separated from the surface or “top” of the hide. While genuine leather, Split Grain leather does not have the natural surface grain of the cowhide. A topical layer of insoluble pigment is applied to the surface of split grain leather, which is then stamped or “grain embossed” to imitate the surface appearance of actual Top Grain leather. By law, in the U.K and Australia split grain can no longer be sold as 100% leather as the surface area is not the natural grain but insoluble pigment. 100% will often accompany the description of the leather meaning 100% of the furniture’s surface (back, sides, cushions) are covered in split grain leather.
Top Grain Aniline European leather. One of Kardiel’s Quality Differences.
This item is upholstered in premium Top Grain Aniline European leather. Top Grain is the actual surface of the cowhide. While no one knows the actual number, a small percentage of furniture sold today is upholstered in Premium Top Grain Aniline leather. Some claim as low as 5%. Aniline dying describes one of the two processes in which color is applied to the leather with the dye penetrating the leather and extending beyond the surface, into the leather itself. For modern furniture requiring a clean aesthetic, Top Grain Aniline Leather is both “liquid vat” (deep penetrating) and surface dyed to achieve the main color selection and to conceal uneven tones and blemishes in the hide. Top grain aniline is the softest leather and naturally breaths well. Because Top Grain refers to the actual surface of the animal hide it presents a natural leather appearance you would expect. While it is true that raw Top Grain Aniline absorbs spills easier, Furniture grade Top Grain leather features a stain resistant treatment making it exceptional for everyday lower maintenance use. Although rare, nothing wears, looks or feels better than premium Aniline Top Grain leather. Over time it patinas and becomes more comfortable versus wearing out.
First production of the sofa began in 1956. The sofa ended production in 1961 with only 186 original pieces being produced. Some were available with cushions all the same color and some had multiple colored cushions.
As with many mid century classics, the Marshmallow sofa gained in popularity as the years went by. It was featured in pop art publications and a variety of big screen pictures. By popular demand the Marshmallow sofa was re-introduced in the mid 1980’s in the form of reproductions of the original design and continues to be made to this day. The Marshmallow sofa was designed in the “Atomistic” style, which explodes its parts into separate, brightly colored elements. In this case the elements are the cushions, which float on the frame.
