Description Like his father before him, Ludvig Pontoppidan started out as an apprentice in the Danish Cabinetmakers’ Guild. There he learned the skills which would make him a master builder, producing his own designs as well as those of Nanna Ditzel, Borge Mogensen, Finn Juhl and others. He was well-known in Denmark, but it wasn’t until 1960, when Pontoppidan participated in the Metropolitan Museum’s exhibition “The Arts of Denmark,” that he was recognized outside of his home country.

This three-seater sofa is an outstanding example of Pontoppidan’s considerable gifts: the proportions are perfect, the slope of the back allows for the most restful recline, the curves are graceful but strong.

Completely restored, and recovered in Scandinavian shearling and leather buttons.
