Description

A high end mid century sideboard designed by Ib Kofod Larsen for G Plan’s exclusive Danish Range. Made of a warm teak with beautiful lines and plenty of storage space, this vintage mid century sideboard has 5 drawers and shelved cupboards. The handles are crafted from solid rosewood and the shelves within the cupboard spaces are height adjustable. A substantial piece, this is a capacious and genuinely stunning mid century sideboard!

Furniture designer Ib Kofod-Larsen was born Denmark in 1921 and studied at the Danish Royal Academy in Copenhagen. In 1948, he won the Holmegaard glass competition as well as an annual award from the Danish Cabinetmakers Guild. The latter drew the attention of Danish furniture manufacturer Faarup Møbelfabrik, and Kofod-Larsen went on to create some of his most beautiful works for the company during the 1950s. He also designed furniture for several other leading midcentury manufacturers, both at home and abroad, including Christensen & Larsen, Bovenkamp, Petersens, and Fredericia Furniture.

Kofod-Larsen frequently worked with gorgeous woods, such as teak and rosewood, as well rich leathers. Clean, sculptural lines characterize much of his work. Notable designs include the U-56 or Elizabeth Chair (1956), composed of a light teak frame and upholstered leather that was purported to have been named for England’s Queen Elizabeth II after she purchased a pair during a visit to Denmark in 1958; as well as the airy and modern Penguin chair (1953). Kofod-Larsen’s striking teak and leather-upholstered Sälen (or Seal) easy chairs for OPE (also 1950s) have become increasingly popular on the vintage market in recent years. Today, his pieces have become highly collectable, in large part due to Kofod-Larsen’s talent for honoring the innate qualities of his chosen materials.

Structurally sound, in super condition and ready for use in your home.
