Description Just look at this phenomenal pair of Scandinavian Modern lounge chairs! These were designed in the 1960s by famed Danish designer Ib Kofod-Larsen for Selig. They are comprised of a solid and sturdy walnut-stained beechwood frame that has angled legs and a sculptural slatted back. The slats themselves are a work of art with their angled backsides. Those slats are held in place with a bowed perpendicular support. Combine all this with their signature paddle-shaped armrests and their silhouette is amazing from all sides. We have upholstered their new high-density foam loose seat and back cushions with a fabulous new old stock (NOS) red, gold, and orange striped fabric which we have applied horizontally accenting their mid-century modern low and long appearance. The strapping has a different installation on each chair we believe depicting an age difference and only one retains its original tag.

Ib Kofod-Larsen (1921-2003) was a native of Denmark and studied at the Danish Royal Academy in Copenhagen. He won, in 1948, the Holmegaard glass competition and an annual award from the Danish Cabinetmakers Guild which garnered him attention from Faarup Mobelfabrik where he went on to create some of his most beautiful works. He also designed for several other companies including High Wycombe, Christensen & Larsen, Carlo Ghrn, Bovenkamp, Fredericia Furniture, and, Petersens. He also found great success with the Selig company, who imported and sold thousands of pieces, mostly seating, to the U.S. market starting in the 1950s. His items are extremely sought after in the vintage market.

This pair will be awesome wherever you use them. Make the set yours!
