Swan Sofa

The Swan Sofa is a couch designed as a continuous fluid surface by Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen in 1958. Custom made as a single-piece molded shell, the sofa and matching chairs were designed for use in the lobby and lounge areas of the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. Choices of leather or fabric upholstery wrap a polyurethane foam shell held up by an aluminum base.

The Swan Sofa measures 31” (78.7 cm) high, 56 3/4” (144.1 cm) wide, with a depth of 29” (73.7 cm).

Common Questions
How long is a couch?
Although couches can vary in size, the standard range is between 72”-96” (183-244 cm) for a three-seat sofa and 48”-72” (121-183 cm) for a loveseat. Ultimately, 84” (213 cm) is considered the typical length of a couch.
How long should a couch last?
Although not explicitly defined, a couch typically lasts anywhere from seven to fifteen years. The lifespan of a couch up until replacement ultimately depends on its initial craftsmanship and amount of wear over time.
How do you clean couch cushions?
First, start at the surface using a vacuum (handheld or an attachment) to remove dirt, dust, hair, and other debris. It is important to determine the type of fabric in order to choose the right cleaning agent to remove stains, following instructions found on the couch’s tags. If the cushions are able to be removed, it is an option to take it to a cleaner or run it through the washing machine if the tags permit. After treating the cushions with an appropriate detergent, air drying is the last step.
