Description

The Shonnard Sofa is inspired by a settee given to the New Mexico History Museum by the late Santa Fe sculptor Eugenie Shonnard. The unique rolled arm tapering down to meet the oversized tufted upholstered back and uniquely carved legs, reminiscent of case artifacts from the early 20th century, all accentuate the historically iconic details found on the original settee.

Shonnard was a well-traveled, adventurous woman raised and educated in New York. Like many early 20th century artists, she traveled to Europe to perfect her craft. In 1925, after several years studying under the watchful eye of the famous Parisian sculptor, August Rodin, Shonnard moved to Santa Fe. She became enthralled by the powerful landscape and diverse cultures indigenous to New Mexico, all of which were reflected in her art. Today her sculptures are found in museums worldwide, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Art Institute of Chicago, and the Luxembourg Museum in Paris.
