A hard to find pair of knole sofas with Moorish or Turkish style backs , made by Baker Furniture we believe in the late 1970's (or to be safe second half of 20th century ) . We have had two other pair over the past 20 years . All in similiar condition . These are worn , need cushions to be re-stuffed and possibly springs tightened . The last pair we had was in red velvet . The designer who bought them said it took 16 yards of fabric (mohair in her case ) PER sofa and $1700 in labor for both (including the tack work ) . Her finished product appeared in Veranda 2009 .
So be prepared for some upholstery work but compare a pair of knoles (and our price) to those found in a google search or on trade sites such as 1stdibs.com . Measures approx : 62 wide 30 deep and 40 tall when closed . approx 76 when opened in full wing position (the knobs on back adjust each arm
