Canapé Gondole, ca. 1925
This is a Canapé Gondole. It was designed by Marcel Coard. It is dated ca. 1925. Its medium is carved indian rosewood, indian rosewood-veneered wood, brass, and linen velvet.
Decorator and designer Marcel Coard designed the gondola sofa prominently placed in Jacques Doucet’s studio in Neuilly. This canapé is the only other known version of this model. A carved basketwork motif outlining the sofa’s graceful curve adds a note of exoticism, also seen in the Pierre Legrain stool in Doucet’s studio.
