Platform Mid Century Modern Sofa

With features like down feather cushions and design origins from Danish Mid Century Modern, the Stilt Sofa is not only comfortable, it is stunning from the front, the back and sides. Stilt owes its comfortable longevity to the premium ingredients from which it is crafted. This includes, a genuine Metal Sinuous No Sag "S Coil" Suspension seat platform, High quality multi-density foam and amply Down Feather Cushions. The sofa is architecturally suspended within a solid wood frame base and back frame. The body design of the platform sofa is minimal and sleek with clean lines.

From the side, the wedge designed body of Stilt angles to some degree backwards with the back cushion following the same angle. The angle provides uniformity in design with cushion following frame and a natural pitch perfect seating platform results. The modernist cube back features 3 independent cushions are filled with a dense foam core for memory retention and down feathers for softer seating comfort. The back cushions are reversible and zippered.


Inspired by Mid Century Modern Danish Design

An icon of mid century modern sofa design, the Stilt sofa is well known for its architectural wooden base “platform” which effortlessly lifts the body from the floor. The height of the seat rail just under the cushions was reduced significantly in order to add the height to the lengthy stiletto wood legs. This creates the airy feel of the footprint of the Stilt Sofa visually taking less space in the room.

A significant portion of the development cost of the Stilt is due to the heirloom finished solid American Ash frame base. This hefty architectural element spans the front, the sides, underneath and artistically extends upwards supporting a significant portion of the back. The depth of the wooden frame exceeds that of the width of the upholstered sofa, thus creating interesting angled space in the back between the frame and the sofa at the base. The wooden platform is a solid and architecturally stunning element from all angles allowing you to place the sofa at any location in the room.

The 3 individual seat cushions are affixed to the sofa body providing a clean well kept appearance and features a multi-density foam core for memory retention. The seat cushion are then stuffed with down feathers. A richly comfortable seating experience results, an unusual trait from such a streamlined mid-century modern design. The Stilt Sofa is a substantial modernist sofa design for a relatively small investment. From the Ash wood frame, to the down feather stuffed cushions to the genuine metal spring system, the Stilt sofa is an enduring modernist design, with just a touch of Danish.

About Vintage Tailored Twill

swatch Twill is an interwoven knit fabric. The thread takes turns in an over and under weave forming a crooked yet overall lineal rectangle pattern that can be discerned at close range. The pattern exists but appears somewhat random when viewed from a normal distance. Vintage Tailored Twill features a finer, tightly tailored flat weave appearance.

Vintage Tailored Twill provides perhaps a more refined, tailored appearance than that of a typical coarse twill. It relies on the multi-tone nature of the fabric strands themselves to provide the appearance of depth of texture.
