Overall in excellent condition. The sofa presents with vivid shades of pink when seen in person. The seating area and upper side edge of the backrest present with extremely light surface soiling consistent with gentle use and not visible unless closely inspected. The fabric rolls are stable and present with surface irregularities inherent to production as well as scattered, occasional lifting to the rolls throughout. A stunning example from the artists’ acclaimed "Sushi" series.
