Amazing pair of sofas designed by Poul Kjaerholm and manufactured by Ejvind Kold Christensen, Denmark 1957. The PK 31 was both a lounge chair and a modular seating element that could be joined in groups to create a variable length. Two chairs produced the two-seat sofa, PK 31/2, three chairs produced the three-seat sofa PK 31/3 and so on. This flexible system ensured harmony in seating groups combining chairs and sofas, and reflected Kjaerholm’s desire to create furniture that could be tailored to the size of the room. The sofas consist of two steel side frames that included the front and back legs and were joined beneath the seat by a rectangular steel bar. Seat, back and the side panels were made of wooden frames covered with leather and included steel tabs screwed to the side frames.


These two settees have a very nice original patina and fully original natural leather covers and are in amazing condition, the leather shows an amazing patina from years of careful use which only adds character to this set and belongs to the history these sofas had. The cushions are down-filled and are still full and firm. Both sofas are stamped with the E Kold Christensen stamp on the bottom of the steel crossbar. The frames are in amazing condition, original and still perfect with slight wear from age! Spectacular set of sofas; priced and sold individually.
