Ib Kofod-Larsen (1921-2003) was a native of Denmark and studied at the Danish Royal Academy in Copenhagen. He won, in 1948, the Holmegaard glass competition and an annual award from the Danish Cabinetmakers Guild which garnered him attention from Faarup Mobelfabrik where he went on to create some of his most beautiful works. He also designed for several other companies including High Wycombe, Christensen & Larsen, Carlo Ghrn, Bovenkamp, Fredericia Furniture, and, Petersens. He also found great success with the Selig company, who imported and sold thousands of pieces, mostly seating, to the U.S. market starting in the 1950s. His items are extremely sought after in the vintage market.
