About

This freestanding sofa, better known as “Model V11” is considered among the masterpiece designs of Illum Wikkelsø. The Danish designer created the “V11” series in 1965 whilst working with master cabinetmaker Holger Christiansen in Aarhus, Denmark. Wikkelsø’s three-seat sofa combines a rectangular shape and long lines with rounded out edges. The low back and deep seat give the sofa a modern and elegant look. The beautiful dark wooden legs are cone-shaped, a stand-out design element of the sofa. The sofa was manufactured by Danish manufacturer Holger Christiansen Møbelfabrik in Aarhus in the 1960s. The leather is in a desirable condition. This super comfortable sofa is made of high-quality brown leather which feels very supple and soft. The pillows are filled with down feathers. This model has a good sense of balance and a Classic look, which makes it a timeless design. In beautiful vintage condition. Literature: 300 Danske Designmøbler By Per H. Hansen and Klaus Petersen. 2015.
