Niels Koefoed design | Teak armchair | Model LARS
Vintage teak framed armchair with reversible seat and back cushion upholstered in original dark brown fabric.
This elegant armchair has been wrongly attributed to designer ILLUM WIKKELSO for many years due to lack of credible documentation for it.
I have now bought the chair along with the ORIGINAL sales catalog from KOEFOEDS MOBELFABRIK and it is clear the chair was designed by Niels Koefed and not ILLUM WIKKELSO
The designs created by WIKKELSO are all listed in the catalog with the name WIK or WIKI where as the Niels Koefoed designs have boys or gilrs names.
The chair is from now on called LARS and designed 1966 by Niels Koefoed!
The teak frame with its distinctive dovetail jointed edges has a elegant stance with the cushions appearing to float within the frame.
The seat frame within the chair has been fitted with new pirelli webbing making it useable for another 40+ years.
The orginal upholstery has not faired so well and is ready for replacement and our upholsterer Tom will be happy to undertake this for you.
His high standard and finish is why i will only use him for these jobs.
Condition. Superb with lovely patina
Frame dismantles for shipping / transport.
