Furniture designer Ib Kofod-Larsen’s furniture from the 1950s and 1960s are today more desirable than ever before. Danish Kofod-Larsen designed storage and seating for the Swedish market in the 1960s 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. Ib Kofod-Larsen’s most celebrated achievement is the Elizabeth chair and ottoman, model U-56, executed by Christensen and Larsen.
