I am currently researching an early George Nelson Drop Leaf  Dining Table for Herman Miller circa. 1946.  My friends at T C Woodcrafters in Traverse City are currently restoring the table for a client.  During my search, I came across this mind-blowing Wright Auction  Design Masterworks sale May 19, 2015, featuring a rare double Marshmallow Sofa by George Nelson & Irving Harper with upholstery hues by Alexander Girard.  The double sofa illustrated is 104″ w x 31″ d x 31h.  The original designed in 1956 was scaled at 52″width. Only 186 were produced by Herman Miller and design was not a commercial success. The piece illustrated sold for and absolutely amazing price of $112,500 in the 2015 sale.
