Invite the 1950's into your living room

Design classics from the 50s and 60s go beautifully with contemporary décor, be it minimalist, classic or trendy. Much furniture from those decades features a timeless expression and an artisanal extravagance that really distinguishes it from modern interior items. That is why classic furniture lends a unique touch to any interior, interacting with contemporary design to invest a home with a personal, embracing style.

The spacious Surfboard coffee table was designed by Arne Hovmand-Olsen in 1959. The design of the table top was inspired by the shape of a surfboard, lending the coffee table an innate lightness that will effortlessly blend in with any modern interior. The coffee table comes with an elegant, solid wood and French wicker shelf, adding an extra dimension to this iconic design.

Soft furnishings such as armchairs and sofas, in which both comfort and aesthetics are crucial, are a good investment. These are items of furniture that need to last for years and withstand everyday use. Many of our armchairs are 1950s classics, designed especially to provide comfortable seating. You can feel this as soon as you settle down in the Lean Back armchair, which is hugely spacious and well upholstered and features a perfect incline to support the back. Our classic Lean Back armchair provides you with volume, superbly comfortable seating and a touch of beauty in your living room.

Invest a bright home with personality and charisma by combining classic furniture such as our Mr. Olsen sofa (from 1958) and a brass Trombone lamp that will add a touch of edginess to an otherwise simple interior.

It is not always easy to see whether a particular design was created 50 years ago or today. But classic designs from the 50s and 60s have a certain gravity and quality that testify to a simpler era, when solid materials and excellent craftsmanship were top priorities. That is precisely why timeless, classic design creates a beautiful contrast to today’s trends and accessories, which often experiment with materials, shape and colour.

Decorate your home with beautiful lamps to achieve excellent lighting. Lamps play a practical role in our homes, but we should not underestimate the aesthetic touch that a beautifully designed lamp can add.

Opal glass has a special lighting quality. That is why the renowned lighting designer Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen opted for this material for his Opal Shade pendant to create a particularly warm glow. This unique 50s pendant is perfect for lighting above a dining table or coffee table, providing pleasant, subdued lighting for dinner, film viewing and entertaining guests.

If you would like your décor to exude exclusivity and Danish design, an eye-catching armchair such as our Fried Egg is a great choice. What distinguishes this armchair from contemporary furniture is its unique idiom and extraordinary design. Modern fabrics add a contemporary element to the chair, making is perfect for either a classic or more modern, minimalist interior. Here, we combine Fried Egg with a contemporary, dark wood side table featuring an organic shape that is in harmony with the playful idiom of the chair, whose aubergine-coloured fabric adds subdued, exclusive style to the living room.
