Edward Sofa

Designed by:  Niels Bendtsen
Manufactured by:  Bensen

The Edward sofa's name is a nod to American mid-century designer Edward Wormley whose designs have remained highly influential since the 1950s and 1960s and clearly served as an inspiration for Niels Bendtsen's contemporary reinterpretation of such.  The Edward sofa combines the use of several down-filled back cushions with a single seat cushion giving it an informal and relaxed appearance.  The buttoned seat cushion alludes to the Edward's mid- century roots, yet its proportions and comfort are markedly contemporary.  Its backrest and arms are appropriately scaled to give excellent back support without appearing oversized and heavy, while the down-filled back cushions conform to give superb comfort.  Edward is available in three sizes and in a wide range of textile and leather upholstery options - texile upholstery is removable.  The option of combining textile upholstery on the frame with a leather seat cushion is also available.  Manufactured by Bensen.

Designed in 2011.

Bensen

Bensen is a design and manufacturing group that was founded in 1981 by Niels Bendtsen and is based in Vancouver, Canada. Along with his staff, Danish-born Bendtsen not only designs the pieces for Bensen, but also oversees production of its extensive line of home furnishings – sofas, sectionals, tables, chairs, stools, credenzas, cabinets, and beds. According to Bendsten, “Quality is a funny concept. We tend to think of it as being associated with handcraft. But quality is also about your attitude to design. Craftsmanship is just as much about how you run the machines that are necessary for economic viability.” Bensen’s philosophy of balancing simplicity and honesty in design is a sentiment that Switch Modern shares. While we have just started adding Bensen designs to our website, we expect to shortly be showing a greater range of pieces and typologies… in the meantime, please contact us for specific information regarding pieces not currently highlighted.
