George Nelson's "Marshmallow Sofa"

Tis the time to revisit some classic modern design. The marshmallow sofa was originally designed George Nelson in 1956. The seat is constructed of a metal frame with 18 round upholstered cushions for support.
This piece, like many others of it's stature, has been reproduced and can be purchased through many outlets offering contemporary design pieces for the home. On average I've found the prices range from $575.00 to $2900.00. You may also find this piece in a wide range of hues as well as several fabric choices, leather and suede are most commonly used.
