Before & After: Borge Mogensen 2213 Sofa

Borge Mogensen is considered to be among the great Danish furniture designers of the mid-century era. He focused on making pieces that were simple, comfortable and durable, which he hoped would make them more useful and better loved.

This model is the 2213 Sofa, which is still in production today, and was specifically designed for Mogensen's home north of Copenhagan. The home still stands today, and the original sofa is still there, placed between the two tables that dictated the dimensions of the sofa. We recently restored an original, and it's just as beautiful.

The simplicity and clean lines of the 2213 Sofa have made it one of the most recognized pieces that Mogensen designed and made, and this model is frequently seen in commercial spaces, offices and homes.

Nicely done, Mr. Mogensen.
