Art Deco couch designergreenspun.com : LUSENET : Art Deco Society of Washington : One Thread
I once came across a sofa that had been designed by Elaine Grey ( Incorrect Spelling of the Name) And due to my incorrect spelling I can no longer find the couch that I was after, she designed it around 1920 I believe and it is still being produced today.
I is very simplistic with a large armrest each side and large square cusions which lay on top of the arm rests. I have seen it produced in black armrests and a orange coloured leather.
Any response would be greatly appreciated.

Probably the name you are looking for is Eileen Gray.
There is some information about her at http://www.geocities.com/Paris/Salon/6941/deco1.htm

there is an original sofa by her in Richmond, at the big museum there. It's a very famous piece.
