The sofa was designed by the Dutch designer Gerard van den Berg in the 1970s and made by his company - Montis. Work by this designer is not easily found. His designs were always comfortable, well made, and innovative. The leather is aniline dyed and therefore not sealed, so it has developed character and patination over time. The leather is heavily grained but smooth where touched and sat on. It has been cleaned and waxed and is ready to go straight into a home.
