The Furniture of Ib Kofod Larsen

Danish designer Ib Kofod Larsen was an architect and furniture designer. His mid-century modern furniture designs were popular in his day, and they're currently seeing a resurgence in popularity (and expense!) 9 years after his death. Here's a peek at our favorites from Kofod Larsen:

Kofod Larsen was one of the most influential designers for England's G-Plan furniture maker. Some of his designs could be taken for minimalist contemporary pieces being designed today (like the sideboard pictured third in the gallery above).
