Hi, can anyone please tell me if this chair is a true design of the Kofod Larsen lounge chair? I was looking online and I cannot find one that has the same armrests as this one pictured here—wondering if this is a true design.

@apgarcia

This chair is designed by Lawrence Peabody; part of the Danish Line by Selig.

Link to further information which shows the chair is NOT by Ib Kofod Larsen

 I have edited this post as I gave completely incorrect info earlier today. Apologies.

One of the extremely rare cases of an American designing furniture in the 1950's, which was made in Denmark. While the primary intent of these designs was for import back to the U.S., somehow five of his chairs (four slipper chairs and the OP's chair above) were included in a 1955 exhibition at Charlottenborg, along with furniture by Wegner, Mogensen, Wanscher, and Kofod Larsen.

Quite the coup by Lawrence to be exhibited with those four.

I actually have a pair of those slipper chairs, my grandmother bought new in around 54-55.
