Rare G-Plan K’Ang sofa and stool c.1959 for bespoke upholstery

Product Description

A fabulous and extremely scarce G-Plan K’Ang sofa with extension / footstool introduced in 1959 and discontinued c.1964 for bespoke upholstery.  The design was part of G-Plan’s first large scale modular sofa and seating system that also included matching standard sofas and chairs and was the companies most expensive range.  Fabulous low and long styling with one end set at an angle with an additional extension that can also be used as a freestanding stool a very flexible piece and the only example of this design that I’ve ever come across.  We have many period catalogues and price lists (see pics) in January 1959 the sofa alone would have cost almost £74, by the end of 1964 when the range was discontinued this sofa and extension combination was still the most expensive sofa produced by the company and would have cost a whopping £133 a considerable sum at the time.  Fabulous quality of construction with a solid beech frame and a fully pocket sprung base and back even in its original condition its still very comfy, once restored this will be a stunning example of mid-century design.  try and find another.  The price includes all new foam and labour but excludes fabric (you’ll need up to 15 linear metres) – we personally think a two-tone combination as per the sofa would look stunning.  Both the sofa and matching extension have been sourced in 100% original condition so provide a perfect template for new upholstery.  The pieces are finished with small ebonised legs with brass feet.  The main sofa splits into 2 parts for easy transportation.
