Mid century Danish design

The Nordic countries have always made exquisite furniture. And the movement known as Scandinavian design began in the early 20th century. It wasn’t until the 1950s that many Scandinavian makers made names for themselves internationally. Designers like Hans J Wegner and Hugo Frandsen helped define Danish design – some names to look out for in our edit.

These furniture greats created comfortable furniture typically featuring simple lines and gentle colour schemes. The Scandinavian style is now one of the most popular furniture designs throughout the world. It employs minimal decorative elements to create a fresh, modern look.

Our Danish antique sofas

In keeping with the nature inspired Scandi style, our Danish sofas are typically made with hardwearing woods including teak and mahogany. These are combined with sumptuous velvet, high quality leather and soft wool to ensure this seating is a joy to sink down into. Many of these styles have been reupholstered to restore them to their original glory. Click into each listing to see the full details of each sofa’s past life.

Typical colours include natural whites, browns and greys. With splashes of icy blues, neutral pinks, dark and moss greens and dark blues. Design features elevate these sofas to truly desirable pieces. Look out for sprung bases, padded armrests and accompanying footstools.
