In the 1950s, the Ambassador Car was inspired by British car maker Morris Motors. The "Amby", as it was affectionately dubbed, was quite successful in India. It was the first Indian-made car, and it was well made with a modern, iconic design. With these successes, this pre-liberalisation darling was fondly known as the "King of Indian roads."
Our Ambassador Sofa pays homage to this icon with a reclaimed 4-door saloon front bonnet, beautifully restored with a working headlight and front plate. The car's hood is replaced with a plush, tufted seat covered in buffalo leather in a regal deep, dark red colour. Buffalo hide from India is highly durable and will uphold years of use in a family room or living room. This is truly an exceptional piece and a fantastic example of modern, upcycled design. The vintage red leather sofa shows creative sofa design at its best!
