Set of Six ib-Kofod Larsen Rosewood Chairs

These chairs were an amazing find and are a gorgeous rich Rosewood with beautiful brass detail on the arms.  There is a strong movement currently into Scandinavian design–modern and antique. The more decorative and traditional pieces play equally well with mid-century items and with traditional pieces. More recent history has given Scandinavian design a cleaner line, which is also appealing to people looking for pieces that can be combined, say, with a few “fussier” English or French pieces.

Furniture desginer Ib Kofod-Larsen’s furniture from the 1950’s and 60’s are today more desirable than ever before. Danish Kofod-Larsen designed storage and seating for the Swedish market in the 60’s but did not really reach any commercial success. Maybe his organic design was to extreme for the Swedish taste at the time. In Denmark, on the contrary, his sideboards produced by Faarup won immediate recognition. Today his creations are sold at higher and higher prices, as his clean designs, often in beautiful rosewood or palisander, have become highly appreciated by a global community of design enthusiasts.
