1940s Sofas

When you picture the 1940s, you might imagine the war, flying ducks on walls, display cabinets, dark-hued woods, and functional furniture. 1940s sofas embraced both form and function and embraced features from both the art deco and art nouveau periods. Marrying the curves and ornate features of the early 20th century with the geometric angles of the 1930s makes for a heady mix of design features that contribute to the uniqueness of 1940s couches.

Nothing epitomises 1940s sofa design more than the banana sofa. Gently curved with Gatsby-inspired bulbous curves, flapper girl tassels, and mustard yellow velvet, this sofa exudes sophistication and fun. For something a little more subtle, a gorgeous Georg Kofoed sofa with its typically Danish teak feet but curved armrests paved the way to the mid-century revolution of sofa design.

Whether you want a comfortable sofa to be the unique centrepiece of your living space or you’re eager to unearth a 1940s sofa to fit a commercial brief, we’ve got you covered. Vinterior is proud of its strong connections to trusted independent sellers as well as its commitment to sustainable shopping. Find your one-of-a-kind sofa in our collection below.
