Newport Camel-Back Sofa
mahogany with poplar and maple frame, 86"l

The Newport camel-back sofa stands on a rectilinear base with four stop-fluted front legs. Straight stretchers tie the front legs to the rear and medial stretcher rear stretches tie all the legs together. The frame has a serpentine front rail that echoes the serpentine camel back crest. The arm rolls are splayed outward, lending a more open and relaxed look to the piece.

The construction is by mortise and tenon throughout, and includes the rails need by the upholsterer. The bare sofa frame is shown in the thumbnail image below.
