Ib Kofod-Larsen Arm Chair for Selig

1,650.00

ITEM DETAILS

Date:  1950’s

Maker:  Selig

Designer:  Ib Kofod-Larsen 

U.S. Patent Office Info:  Modern Chair Patented Sept 30, 1958, Serial #47,672, Des. 183, 618 by Ib Kofod-Larsen, assignor to Selig Manufacturing Company Inc.

A pure classic Danish-modern design and very rare collectable!  The beauty of this chair resides in its features which include:  rare side caning, boomerang/ surfboard arm rests, hardwood slatted backrests that extend outward in a triangle, swag legs, and removable cushions.

Designed by the prolific Ib Kofod Larsen for U.S. retailer, Selig, the chair is a stunning slat-backed lounge chair/ armchair with some of the most amazing sculptural lines I've ever seen.  The details are non-stop.  The frames are beech with untouched original walnut finish.  

Of note, Selig had the chairs designed, manufactured and hand-finished in Denmark.  

A vintage W&G Sloan furniture store ad shared that these chairs are, "Beautiful from any angle.  This is the answer to the open plan - chairs that stand away from the wall.  Slat back chair with raffia arms is walnut finished beech with ...cushions."  

The original Selig catalogue lists this chair as style #S-596 (but did not give the caning side arm option) and was available with seamed or seamless cushions.  

CONDITION

Excellent vintage condition.  This wood is in original condition and shows very nicely with patina to the arm rests.  The cushions have been recovered, or replaced, with a seamed soft brown tweed.  The strapping has been replaced and is stapled to the frame.  If you wish to know more about the original strapping specifications, I am happy to provide documentation.
