Set of 2 'Blade Arm' Lounge Chairs by Ib Kofod Larsen for Selig, Denmark, 1960's

About the Item

Introducing a true Danish Modern masterpiece: an ultra-rare set of "Blade Arm" lounge chairs designed by the incomparable Ib Kofod Larsen for Selig. This iconic armchair set has been fully restored and newly upholstered in a fabulous faded Canary yellow cotton bouclé, making it the perfect addition to any modern home. Constructed from solid Beech wood and stained chocolate walnut (in exact accordance with the original finish and materials), these now iconic chairs are both durable and stylish, comfortable and utterly breathtaking from every angel. Ib Kofod-Larsen was a venerated architect who formed part of a movement known as Danish Modern. Larsen was a purist and considered himself as more of an artisan than an architect or designer and his extensive catalog is proof of that. He was respected for having an exceptional understanding of materials and an eye for the potential of the wood and the quality of the raw materials he used. The Selig Manufacturing Co was at the cutting edge of contemporary furniture during the mid 20th century. Selig Furniture was founded by Mendell Selig and Samuel Wexler in Gardner, Massachusetts in 1931. By the 1950s the company had grown to become one of America's leading importers and producers of contemporary furniture. The company focused on the high end designs being produced in Denmark and other Scandinavian countries. Their product range epitomized the simple, elegant and airy forms typical of post-war Danish furniture design on display in this exquisite set's aesthetic and form. With their instantly recognizable saber-shaped arms, new upholstery and refinished wood these icons of Danish design are perfect for both collectors and designers alike searching for an authentic Larsen chair set that is ready for a literal lifetime more of use. Equal parts comfort and aesthetics these loungers can blend seamlessly against a multitude of design backdrops from Mid-Century Modern to Contemporary to Minimalism and everything in between. Historically these chairs do not come along often and are quick to sell. Make them yours today before they're gone forever. ---Dimensions--- Width: 30.5 in / 77.47 cm Depth: 32 in / 81.28 cm Height: 27 in / 68.58 cm Seat Height: 15 in / 38.1 cm Arm Height: 22.5 in / 57.15 cm This stunning set of "Blade Arm" lounge chairs have recently undergone a complete and exhaustive restoration process featuring new upholstery. The solid beech wood, stained walnut (as was the original stain and tone) has been hand-sanded and refinished using the exact techniques and materials as was originally utilized 60+ years ago and show no scratches, nicks or other blemishes whatsoever. The cushions, reupholstered in a kind-to-the-touch faded canary yellow cotton bouclé, are in showroom never-sat-in condition and perfectly offset the rich, dark mocha tones of the wooden frames. The cushions are original and provide a firm, comfortable sink. The support straps have been replaced providing extra support. This iconic "Blade Arm" chair set is incredibly comfortable, structurally sound and ready for a literal lifetime more of use thanks to their recent restoration process. Please view all photos and video for details on this set's current condition. We're limited on the amount of media we can post so additional photos and videos are available upon request.
