The sofa has been fully checked and restored in our in-house atelier, to make sure you'll receive this Danish beauty in its best condition.
Erik Ole Jørgensen (1925-2002) was originally trained as an upholsterer. Later on he did embarke on the route of becoming a designer himself. In 1944 he graduated from the Design School. This combination of being an upholsterer and designer meant that he designed both furniture and fabrics, including a collaboration with Kaare Klint or a design for curtains for Kvadrat. His simple, functional furniture with extremely high quality upholstery has put him in the ranks of the best Danish furniture designers.
