I wanted a love seat for an Art Deco hotel room I’ve been planning to model, and the above was the perfect inspiration. The frame part was actually completed last year, but I was never able to finish the seat part. This time I lessened the “sag” in the seat by adding more “plump”.

The arms are veneered with burr amboyna, the base is coated with black lacquer (with some “cracks” for an antique look), the upholstery is beige leather. Here’s the wireframe view:

I couldn’t resist making variations with the wood and upholstery.

Variations to the previous beige-and-amboyna combination.

The model in front has a black lacquer veneer, with leather upholstery in ivory. Kingwood veneer and a zebra-patterned upholstery is the look of the model in the back.

I felt the need to model the chair version as well. In the 1930s matching “furniture sets” were a trendy thing. We might as well model the chair type! Here we go:

Now we can have an Art Deco furniture set to go with our fireplace. :)

    Love, love, love this! Can’t wait for the “set” to come out!

    • Thank you, Han! I posted the sofa first and then updated later by adding the chairs. Sorry for that–perhaps I should have posted the additions in a separate article instead. I still need to model the center table. Coming soon!

    These look like very comfy seating. Don’t like the zebra print upholstery much though. I wonder if tulip colors would work for a modern home?

    • Thank you, Kris! These days there are plenty of mixed-style interiors (Queen Anne chair in an all-white contemporary room, or B&B ITALIA modern furniture in a Neoclassical room). Since eclecticism is in I’m quite certain the tulip chairs could be arranged to fit a contemporary home. For our 3D room model it would be an Art Deco-only style, though. :)
