Designer Eileen Gray

Frame of chromium-plated steel tubing. Padded beech wood frame with rubber webbing. Upholstery: polyurethane with polyester filling. Cover in fabric or leather.

Eileen Gray's perhaps most exclusive sofa radiates an allure from which no beholder can escape. The soft curve, the most unusual lines of the backrest make the "Monte Carlo" an incomparable and striking one-of-a-kind in the history of 20th century design (like Eileen Gray herself). "Monte Carlo" unites reserve and exuberance, quiet calm and dynamism. Seldom is such perfect balance seen in a piece of furniture.
"One can only do without certain rules by inventing new ones." This maxim from Eileen Gray gave rise to one of the most beautiful icons of modern design.

    An absolute classic, young mate! Wow!
    Monte Carlo dates to 1929.

    Hello there, I was wondering if you could kindly tell me where the ClassiCon marking was located please? I bought one and mine too is too large for my flat! I was looking for the marking like yours but I can't find it.

    Thank you,

    Hi The20thCenturyJoy,
    I think it was on one of the legs I had to sell mine as it was a huge.
    Good luck :)
