Ib Kofod-Larsen Palomino Sheepskin & Walnut Reclining Lounge Chair & Ottoman

$12,800per set

About

Beautiful reclining lounge chair and ottoman designed by Ib Kofod-Larsen for Selig freshly upholstered in hand sewn rich Oatmeal / Ivory Shearling. An early Mid Century Scandinavian Modern design hailing from 1950s Sweden, this Ib Kofod-Larsen chair is in excellent original condition with no structural repairs or alterations. Scandinavian Modern furniture is iconic for its seamless merger of quality, style and function. Built to last generations with its solid walnut frame and legs, this Ib Kofod-Larsen reclining chair and ottoman features a cozy thick seat cushion and a curved seat back with both lumbar and cervical spine support. That studied ergonomic seat back design - coupled with mirroring angled arm rests - work together and produce a sitting experience that's anatomically aligned and comfortable. The chair seems to naturally place you where it wants you. Matching original ottoman. Newly professionally upholstered. We chose a luxurious oatmeal cream shearling. The color is warm and inviting and contrasts well the rich walnut grain. The hides are very durable and easier to clean than fabric. Even the piping is shearling. 10s all the way. A truly sophisticated and timeless look that's functional and built extremely well. An ideal choice for reading, watching your favorite movie, or just taking the weight off after a long day with your favorite glass of wine. Want to see more beautiful things?

About the Designer

Ib Kofod-Larsen

Furniture maker and architect Ib Kofod-Larsen was one of the greatest design minds to emerge from mid-century Denmark, and his impact was felt across the world, especially in the United States. Kofod-Larsen, who is known for his exemplary seating, tables and storage solutions, understood that the attention to detail, quality materials and functional design ethos of the Scandinavian modernism style he followed would become part of a major international movement.

Due to his foresight and innovation, Kofod-Larsen was one of the best-selling Danish designers in the U.S. in the 1950s, when mid-century modernism was at its most popular.

Originally trained as a cabinetmaker, Kofod-Larsen later studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and was most interested in designing practical yet graceful furniture, although he also dabbled in things like wallpaper and textiles. He favored natural grains and woods like teak and rosewood combined with leather, steel and fabric upholsteries to create inviting pieces. Working with manufacturers such as Faarup Møbelfabrik, Christensen & Larsen and Bovenkamp, he brought his sculptural aesthetic to the world.

Some of his seating designs have earned legendary status: The U-56 chair (1956) was renamed the Elizabeth because England’s Queen Elizabeth II is said to have picked up a pair during a 1958 trip to Denmark. With OPE Möbler, he created the Seal chair (1956) with a wooden frame shaped around leather upholstery. The sculptural Penguin chair (1953), produced by Selig and named for its curved back, became Denmark’s most frequently exported piece of furniture to the U.S. at the time. Its bentwood shell echoes the work of Kofod-Larsen’s modernist contemporaries Eero Saarinen and Charles and Ray Eames, while its options as a dining, lounging and rocking chair offer versatility for the home.

As mid-century modern furniture experiences a fresh wave of popularity in the U.S. — although, one could argue that it never really went away — Kofod-Larsen’s timeless pieces are among the most coveted vintage finds. Several of his designs continue to be produced, such as the Penguin chair, which has been manufactured by Brdr. Petersen since 2012.
