Built to the exact specifications as the original, blending all of the soft comfort and functionality of the original 1951 Contour Chair with the communality and dramatic impact of a sofa. Stretched to almost a metre and a half, large enough to fit at least two people, it is perfect for a stylish mid-century living room or lounge, while the range of vibrant cashmere colours allow it to fit almost any decor. The Contour Sofa is a true design legend.
First released in 1951 to complete the full Grant Featherston living room set, paired with one or two Contour Chairs, the Contour Sofa was the legendary Aussie's largest and most communal furniture offering. Seeking to make larger pieces that lost none of their panache, organic form and comfort, after many rejected designs, he hit upon a very simple formula. He simply took his most popular design and tweaked the dimensions to devastating effect, creating one of his most celebrated designs in the process.
Grant Featherston was born in 1922 in the south Australian state of Victoria. Self-taught, he designed lighting and glass panels before serving in the army from 1940-1944. He returned to Melbourne after the war and in 1951 created the first of his famous Contour Chairs. He opened Featherston Contract Interiors furniture showroom in 1956. His designs received many Good Design Awards and he is represented in the collections of National and State galleries and museums.
