De Sede DS47 sofa set buffalo leather Switzerland 1970





The DS-47 sofa takes us back to the beginning of De Sede, where ‘they say’ a skin was thrown over a lump of hay, that is how the sofa was invented.. Each DS-47 piece exudes character through its carefully selected leather, using only the finest bull hides with rich grain and no blemishes. What sets the DS-47 apart is its seamless design – there are no visible stitching seams.


Crafting it from the 0.5-centimeter thick leather requires exceptional skill and expertise, starting from the nuchal fold and working outwards. Additionally, the DS-47 offers an extendable seat, adding a bit more depth for added comfort and relaxation. It’s a beautiful blend of tradition and modern craftsmanship, creating a piece of furniture that’s both elegant and functional. This is an exceptional set, and it’s a one-of-a-kind find. It comes from the original owner, who took great care of it over the years. The set has developed a remarkable patina due to its age. Priced and sold in a complete set.


De Sede traces its roots back to a small saddler’s workshop in Klingnau, Switzerland. Skilled craftsmen dedicated themselves to transforming high-quality leather into exceptional seating furniture. With years of experience and hard work, they created handcrafted leather pieces of remarkable quality. In 1965, the family-owned business transitioned into a joint-stock company known as de Sede AG while staying true to their original principles. The company experienced rapid growth from that point onward. They enlisted top-notch designers, expanded manufacturing facilities, and established an international distribution network. Their designs skilfully blended traditional Swiss craftsmanship with modern sophistication, earning the brand a global reputation.
