Ernest Race Heritage Collection
The DA & DA6 Sofa
The DA… Ernest Race’s interpretation of the classic wingback chair
Launched in 1946, the DA was marketed as upholstered furniture for the modern, space conscious home. The range was originally conceived in collaboration with Heals of London.
With its light anatomical construction, the DA series was a radical departure from the traditional bulky armchairs and sofas of the past, while still providing exceptional comfort. The 1951 Race catalogue reinforced Ernest Race’s philosophy stating that, ‘Bulk and weight are not synonymous with comfort.
The DA, launched in 1946, was Ernest Race’s interpretation of the classic wingback chair.
