We haven’t featured any classic design for a while, so here’s a great example – the Arne Jacobsen Swan Sofa.
It’s another example of Jacobsen creating something timeless – next year, this will be 50 years old, but this graceful sofa still looks ahead of its time. It was originally designed for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen in 1958 and is still in production today, courtesy of Fritz Hansen, using that same moulded, foam-covered shell and satin-polished aluminium base.
It’s upholstered in a choice of fabrics, with the price depending on the one you choose. A basic cloth sets the price at £3,355, while the use of a natural leather bumps it up to £6,715.
