Pair of Kofod Larsen "Penguin" metal and bentwood chairs, circa 1960s


Shipping to United States: $0.01

For sale is this iconic pair of lounge chairs from Kofod Larsen - better known as Penguin chairs. Circa 1960s and made in Denmark, these beauties are just waiting to slide into your living space for years of stylish relaxing and would be a welcomed addition to any timeless and classic!

Featuring newly-restored black iron frames adorned with brass feet for a small element of whimsical fun, the sturdy frames elegantly support those stylish and curvaceous backrests with penguin-shaped wings (hence their name Penguin Chairs). The bentwood backrest contours the body, almost like it's giving a supportive "hug" to the respective lounger alongside organic lumbar support too!

CONDITION: The metal frames have just been restored/repainted with a durable black satin enamel paint, and walnut-toned bentwood backrests given a new protective lacquer coating so they're ready to last another generation. The existing dark brown faux leather seats were in such stellar condition, and exude an awesome retro/mid-century vibe, I opted to leave as-is BUT they could easily be changed to a material/color of your choice (any upholstery shop could easily handle).

DIMENSIONS: 21" wide x 32.5" high x 23" deep (each dimension taken at the widest point). These chairs are sturdy and wide enough to accommodate bigger guests too (e.g. I'm 6'3" and these fit me great). Seat height from floor is 18"

I sell and ship much mid-century modern furniture nationwide from my home showroom in Seattle so I'll coordinate all shipping logistics on behalf of buyer if preferred shipping companies specialize in furniture transportation and individually wrap/unwrap each piece for the utmost protection. Free local pickup in the Seattle area too, or you can arrange you're own shipping.
