DESCRIPTION:
A classic and popular sofa designed by BÝrge Mogensen for Fredericia A/S. This sofa first appeared in 1945 and was designed specifically for the Cabinetmaker's Guild Exhibition. Together with Hans Wegner, Mogensen designed and furnished a small three-room apartment for the exhibition. This piece however was never put into full production until 1963 at which time it proved to be very popular with the public. The simple and straight-forward design is constructed of a solid beech with Danish wool cushions. What makes this piece so special is the ability to lower one arm to allow it to be used as a daybed. The arm is held in place by leather ropes. This classic sofa would be a great addition most modern living environments.
