Rare Ib Kofod-Larsen 'Trol' Sideboard, Sweden 1958


Sideboard by Ib Kofod-Larsen for Säffle Möbelfabrik, Sweden, 1958.

This rare and stylish palisander sideboard was produced by Swedish manufacturer Säffle Möbelfabrik in cooperation with Danish designer Ib Kofod-Larsen in 1958.

This very sought after model with it’s V-shaped legs and book-matched palisander veneer has a grain that has come out beautifully over time. With its size and four doors it creates a lot of shelving space. The first three doors cover height adjustable shelves, the fourth covers four white uneven sized drawers. Each door has a small oval notch on the top, enabling easy opening while maintaining a clean and uncluttered front.

Presumably only 40 or 50 of these have been made when the Säffle factory bought a left over stack of veneer from another factory. It’s made with outstanding production quality and attention to detail.

About the designer:

Ib Kofod-Larsen was born in 1921 in Denmark. Kofod-Larsen was trained as a cabinetmaker with the highest honours in 1944, and later completed his education as an architect from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 1948. His first recognition as a designer came when he won the Holmegaard Glass Competition and received the Danish Cabinetmakers Guild’s annual award. These awards attracted the attention of the Danish furniture manufacturer Faarup Møbelfabrik. During his time at Faarup, he created some of his most beautiful works, like the rosewood Model 66 sideboard, and established himself as a furniture designer. Learn more about Ib Kofod-Larsen.
