This Relaunch Will Make Mid-century Lovers Swoon



It was definitely a love at first sight moment. The relaunch of Ib Kofod-Larsen’s armchair model 107 ticked into my mailbox a while back, and I just knew, I needed to find a spot for it in my own living room. And just before flying to LA, it finally arrived. Hot off the press, are these pictures of the chair taken in my redecorated living room. I can’t wait to return to fully submerge myself into the extremely soft and comfortable chair that awaits my return too I am sure.

In order to bring the chair back to life Magnus Olesen, who also produced the original chair back in 1956, decided to give the chair a more modern feel with new textiles and color variations, but of course keeping all the original details intact and respecting Ib’s classic design. Magnus Olesen picked new modern fabrics and a color palette which really complement each other and the chair with a mid-century feeling in mind.

Operating since 1937 Magnus Olesen have created high quality furniture designed by some of the best designers and architects. Today Magnus Olesen is a well-reputed and highly quality conscious furniture company, developing and manufacturing functional seating furniture with matching tables of a high design quality. Even though Magnus Olesen have been around for decades, you might not recognize them at first, as they are mostly known for their pieces for the contract market (conference rooms, canteens, auditoriums etc.), but with the relaunch of the model 107 armchair they are making their way into the consumer market as well.
