Art Deco couch designer : 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

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