The Wonder Sofas.

10/09/2014
 It is always been said that to know where we are going, it is necessary to look back and to see where we came from. This is what we have been doing in Famaliving during this week. 

It all started when by chance I found this photograph wandering around the office. 

 Fama Sofás Modelo Gilda

It is the model Gilda, one of the first designs carried out by our designer Félix López Gil, when he just came from the office after finishing his degree in Design, in the late 70s.

It was then that we decided to look in our old catalogues from the 70s-90s, where we could see the evolution followed by our brand during our first two decades.

This post is dedicated to the beginning of Fama Sofás and the first models.

Back in the 70s, when the company was created, we did not know the style we would follow.  We have only a few people in the company and none of them had any experience as a designer. Nevertheless, we started to visit showrooms, as the Colonia Trade Fair or the Milan Trade Fair. This helped us to take some ideas and to know more about the furniture market, in which we still were a bit “green”. Thanks to this visits, we gave birth to our first models, as A-71, and A-72.

Other models to keep in mind are RA-35, the first Fama’s modular composition, the GT-20 our first sofa-bed, or the Arabia, which inspired us to create, 20 years later, the Oasis model. You can compare them below.

One of the key people during those times in our company was Juan Martínez. We should go back to 1969, when Félix López Serrano, a founder partner of Fama Sofás, hired a seventeen-year old young man (now 71). Juan had the courage to leave the company where he was working as upholsterer and designer. Then he started a new experience in Fama Sofás, with he designed very characteristic sofas, such as Palma or the first Cádiz model. It must be said that Antonio López, actual partner of Fama Sofás also dared to make a stand for design, as we can see in the corner sofa Iris

We consider this times as a learning stage. They were key moments for the development of the coming events. In the 80s, changes came into Fama Sofás. But we will tell more about this in our next post. And what about you? Which of our old models do you like the most?

Buen artículo Toni. Además se ve como Fama ha sido innovador siempre y ha aportado diseños que eran adelantados para su época y que al final han hecho evolucionar el mercado. De hecho alguno de estos modelos todavía se podrían vender seguramente. Un saludo!!

This website of steroid websites is wonderful! So friendly and helpful. Taking too much can cause significant steroid shot side effects; taking too little may not produce the beneficial effects of steroids. Once you decide on a compound, research it thoroughly for the right dose information based on the method of delivery at www.esteroides24.com!

Dosing should usually be done early in the day, as it may interrupt sleep when taken later due to frequent toilet breaks. Attend all medical appointments you have so your progress and response may be monitored.
