MID CENTURY IB KOFOD LARSEN ROSEWOOD SIDEBOARD BY SEFFLEby Pure Imagination Ltd
An amazing four doored rosewood sideboard from Ib Kofod Larson for Seffle Sweden.
Great colour, the figure of the veneer is stunning with matched grain across the front with a cross band running along the top of the front section to really set it off. The top is stunning also with a mixture of colours which is simply gorgeous.
The sideboard is a very good size which make it easier to fit into the modern home. Internally there are adjustable shelves and a drawer to the right section. The inside panels are a mixture of ash veneer and white panels all of which help to enhance the external colour. The sideboard is in very good condition, but does have a few light surface marks to the top and a small chip. (we have photos of this an can email them to you upon request)
Ib Kofod Larsen’s furniture from the 1950’s and 60’s are today more desirable than ever before. Danish Kofod Larsen designed storage and seating for the Swedish market in the 60’s 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 furniture received 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.

STYLISH A YOUNGER AFROMOSIA COFFEE TABLE C 1960by Pure Imagination Ltd
Stylish A Younger afromosia coffee table c 1960
It’s not labelled but then many Younger pieces aren’t , and it’s not illustrated in the 1964 catalogue we have , but stylistically and the way it’s constructed make us very certain that it’s by them . Firstly it’s in solid afromosia a wood that they and only a couple of other companies used in the late 1950s and early 60s . There are also features of the design that are very similar to those used in designs by John J Herbert who was their design director for many years from the mid 1950s . Also the way its made underneath looks like a Younger piece .
Afromosia is a dark teak like wood that was used by a few of the best British makers of contemporary in the late 1950s and early 60s . Guy Rogers used it for sofas and chairs , Fyne Ladye for their furniture and a few others also . The use of solid timber rather than veneers is something that on the whole ended in the mid 1960s due to cost .
We love the floating top design that gives it a lovely simple elegance . Also the slight upturn of the ends . This definitely was not a cheap piece of furniture when it was new . It’s in beautiful condition with no marks or scratches .
Materials: solid afromosia
Dimensions: 159cms long 45 deep and 48.5 high
RARE PAIR OF IB KOFOD LARSEN TEAK ARMCHAIRS G PLAN DANISH DESIGN RANGEby Pure Imagination Ltd
Rare pair of Ib Kofod Larsen teak armchairs G Plan Danish Design range. Model 6245.
Ib Kofod Larsen was one of the most successful Danish designers in the 1960s. Unlike many of his contemporaries who designed only for Danish makers, he worked for Swedish and American companies as well as the British firm of E Gomme ( G Plan ). He designed much of their Danish Design range in 1961, and these chairs were apparently launched in January 1962. He apparently was given a 10 year contract to design pieces for G Plan at £2000 a year, which was not bad for a part-time job then ( around £45000 a year in today’s terms ), especially as he didn’t seem to produce any new designs after about 1966!
We’ve done google searches for this model and can only find 2 illustrated, both were single armchairs and long sold.
The 1963 G Plan Danish catalogue says of this chair “If at first glance it may seem simplicity itself , it’s simplicity conceals a great ingeniousness of design . To start with , by immense skill , Ib Kofod Larsen has eliminated every unnecessary piece , yet produced a chair that is rock-solid in construction ” . Further on it says “This is not furniture that you will live with for a few years and then tire of ”.
After a light clean and oil the frames which are still ” rock-solid ” look stunning . The design hasn’t dated , and the previous owners have only needed to replace the webbing and cushion covers over the 50 plus years since they were made . Although the current webbing is ok , we’ll replace it with new Pirelli rubber webbing .
Cushions can be foam or at extra cost feather /foam mix for a softer look and feel .
We’ve shown the chairs with some 1960s Danish vintage leather cushions that we have, as well as the previous owners brown fabric ones which are slightly higher than the leather ones, but both are lower than those shown in the original catalogues. We can discuss back cushion height along with various fabric options that are available. Our price includes new foam cushions with new zipped covers made from fabric that we will source from Abraham Moon, Camira or Romo ( retail price around £40-£60 a metre ). We have various suggestions on this website, but there are many more colours available from these British companies. We can arrange samples to be sent to you, and would always advise this as some colours do look different in real life than they do on a screen .
Stamped with G Plan gold Ib Kofod Larsen Danish Design stamp.
Materials: solid teak
PRICE: £1850 WITH NEW CUSHIONS TO ORDER
DANISH ROSEWOOD CHEST OF DRAWERS ATTRIBUTED TO POUL HUNDEVADby Pure Imagination Ltd
Sleek small Danish rosewood chest of drawers attributed to Poul Hundevad.
The chest itself is identical to a Mogens Kold chest we had a few years ago that’s a well known design by Arne Hovmand-Olsen, but that has totally different legs to it. The drawer front is solid rosewood rather than just being a veneer, so a lot better quality than the run of the mill rosewood pieces that we usually find from the 1960s. The concealed drawer handles are a lovely stylish minimalist feature. The square legs are fixed rather than the usual screw in ones we find on standard Danish mid-century chests, and the grain on the rosewood is particularly nice.
Dimensions: 60cms wide 61ht 32deep

Antique French Ormolu Mounted Mahogany Display Cabinetby Marylebone Antiques
Antique French Ormolu Mounted Mahogany Display Cabinet
Very impressive & large antique French display cabinet is excellent condition & of high quality throughout. The most striking feature of this cabinet are the gilt bronze mounts & feet. You need to enlarge all the images to see the fine details on the gilt fittings. The bottom door panels have stunning mounts on them, especially the middle one with a scene of birds among floral features. The base has well defined hairy paw feet in gilt metal. There are so many great features, I can’t possibly mention them all. The glass in the middle door is bevelled & the two outside glass sections are bow shaped. The inside of this cabinet is also polished mahogany, with two thick glass shelves & a brass light fitting attached on the top. The outside is mahogany too, with flame mahogany panels below. There are gilt metal mounts everywhere & this is a heavy display cabinet. I would date this piece to around the 1920’s period.
