- Kagan’s Barrel Sofa was designed in 1947 and is among some of his earliest signature silhouettes.
- Delivers consistent comfort with an eight-way hand-tied spring seat and sculpted back upholstery.
- With its cleverly rounded shapes and casual lounging feel, the Barrel Sofa pays homage to mid-century style without sacrificing contemporary crispness.
Vladimir Kagan pioneered the enduring voice of midcentury modern design. A designer of not simply furniture but what he called “vessels to hold the human body,” Kagan joined the portfolio in 2016, personally entrusting his legacy to HOLLY HUNT. Kagan’s designs radiate his vitality and passion for discovery. Born in Worms, Germany in 1927, he emigrated to the U.S. at the age of 11, just before the dawn of WWII. From his father’s repeated admonishment “Ehre das Handwerk!” (“Honor the handcraft!”), Vladimir inherited an appreciation of artisan skill which, combined with his innovative design sensibility, was key to his success.
