Dorotheum Sofa

Dorothy Draper Collection

Dorothy Draper designed the original of this sofa for the café at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. (The café was later renamed the Dorotheum Café in her honor.) Kindel’s reproduction is faithful to the original and adapted to fit in private spaces. The curved back slopes gracefully to seat height. Two 20” throw pillows are standard (not shown). The plinth base is available in wood finishes or painted lacquer.

About the Designer

Dorothy Draper

Dorothy Draper Designer Bio
"I always put in one controversial item. It makes people talk." If it looks right, it is right." — Dorothy Draper

Dorothy Draper was born to a wealthy and privileged family in 1889, in one of the most exclusive communities in American history, Tuxedo Park. She was the first to “professionalize” the interior design industry by establishing in 1923, the first interior design company in the United States, Dorothy Draper & Company. This was a time when it was considered daring for a woman to go into business for herself. Dorothy Draper's style was big and bold. She invented Modern Baroque with over-sized, plaster work and the dramatic use of vibrant color. She is known for her interior design work on behalf of such organizations as Hampshire House and The Carlyle in New York, The Mark Hopkins Hotel in San Francisco, The Greenbrier in West Virginia and Arrowhead Springs Hotel in Southern California. She was a very confident and successful businesswoman who always said, "If it looks right, it is right."
