Edinburgh – eh12 5ae

1960s teak free-form shaped end arms, turned legs, low back, bed area 185cm x 106cm.  It is believed to be by Greaves and Thomas, the London prestige furniture maker and was known as the ‘Put-u-up’ sofa bed, a design that continuously evolved from the 1920s to the 1960s.  This iconic design is believed to be by Walter Cornell, whose work was influenced by contemporary Danish design. 

The original fabric in a broad grid pattern of browns, rust and beige is intact but thin and beginning to fray along the front seat edge.

Note that the seat area needs to be re-sprung.

The bed is let down by a foot-operated pedal lever to the rear.  This is intact but loose at the connection to the metal under frame; it needs bolting or welding in place.

There are light scratches to the side of the left-hand arm (facing the sofa).  The right-hand arm is in good condition.
