by Eileen Gray
Sofa was designed by Eileen Gray for the apartment of Madame Mathieu-Levy at
the Rue de Lota in Paris. The armrests of the sofa are made of cases on wheels
in high-gloss piano lacquer. The Lota Sofa is pivotal as it is widely seen as
the turning point of Eileen Gray’s design career. Eileen Gray is known
especially for her tubular furniture, carpets and ‘occasional’ tables.
