Dezeen Showroom: K5 Furniture and The Robin Boyd Foundation have partnered to rerelease the mid-century Walsh Street sofa by Australian architect Robin Boyd, who designed the seating for his home.

Part of K5's Boyd collection, the Walsh Street sofa is classically modernist, with a fully upholstered frame on slender wooden legs and clean lines defining the form.

K5 Furniture says it faithfully followed Boyd's specifications and material choices for the three-seater sofa, using recently found drawings as a reference and curating a selection of fabrics and leathers to match the design.

"Each piece in the collection is meticulously crafted from Australian hardwoods, adorned with Australian wool fabrics and features cork tiles as the tabletop finish," said K5.

"This attention to detail and selection of materials imbues each piece with the inherent appeal of finely crafted furniture."

As well as being an architect, Boyd was renowned as a designer, writer and critic who advocated for affordable and functional modernist homes to unify the Australian suburbs.

K5 considers the Boyd collection to be an embodiment of his values. As well as the sofa, the collection includes a chair, coffee table and dining table.
