This unconventional sofa brings both fun and modern styling to your home. Featuring a whimsical design of "floating" genuine leather cushions, the Marshmallow Sofa is not only astonishing in its appearance, but also surprisingly comfortable. It was originally designed by George Nelson and Irving Harper in 1956, when an inventor came to them with an idea for a durable plastic cushion that could be mass-produced extremely cheaply. These proposed cushions could only be produced at a maximum size of 12 inches, so Nelson and Harper began their experiment by arranging 18 of them into a sofa shape, held together by a steel frame. Though the inventor's revolutionary new cushions ultimately proved impractical, Herman Miller was so taken with Nelson and Harper's bold new design that they decided to put it into production with more traditional leather cushions. And thus, the Marshmallow Sofa was born. Our beautiful, high-quality reproduction is made of the finest materials, and is available in Black, Red, White and Brown.
