Ikea copies classic 1950s Knoll design with Karlstad sofa

Ikea_karlstad

Does this sofa look familiar? Well, you might have noticed something very similar on this site previously – the classic Florence Knoll sofa from the company’s 1954 Lounge Collection. Go Modern do a cheaper copy, but Ikea goes even cheaper than that with its own version, going under the name of the Karlstad sofa.

Not to be confused with the Karlstad swivel armchair, the Karlstad leather two-seater sofa is ‘designed’ by Tord Bj√∂rklund and features adjustable armrests, touch-and-close fastening to keep the cushions in place and a soft and hard-wearing leather which promises to ‘age gracefully’.

Available now, it retails for £499.
