Extremely rare, original, Danish, Mid Century Sofa & Chair set designed by Poul Jensen for Selig in Denmark, circa 1960s. Known as the 'Z' series for its signature armrests that connect seamlessly to the legs, resembling the letter Z. This iconic, handmade original set features walnut-stained solid wood, with sculpted armrests and arched, slatted backrests. The wood of this set is in original condition and shows some of its age here and there, but is otherwise in very good condition. I decided not to have the wood refinished because I (and many other collectors) prefer the original finish and condition of a set like this. That said, if so desired, the set is an excellent candidate for a refinishing, as the wood has never been stripped or sanded. Nor do these sets represent complex refinishing jobs and are affordable and quick to do. The cushions of the set, however, have been professionally refinished and reupholstered by a vintage restoration team in LA. The fabric is a preproduction of an exact style used originally by Selig and done in a soft, textured, oatmeal blend. I even ordered surplus fabric (shown here) for potential future repairs, as the fabric was hard to come by. As for the actual cushion inserts, I decided to install a far better quality cushion than normally used on these sets and chose a very dense and form-fitting cushion and even installed an extra-spun layer on top of the cushion to make the couch extremely comfortable (Zip-open image below). The additional padding ads a bit more height to the seat cushions, as shown here and it looks and feels fantastic! Lastly, I replaced all the Fagas straps with NEW, original Fagas straps to make this entire set a true original. NOTE: This set has a real market value of $10k - $14k but I am moving east and need to sell faster to raise more money. This set could be bought at this price and resold for a sizeable profit. Do a quick refinish and sell it for even more. Please research the accuracy of this statement and you will see it is fair and honest. One of the best sites for this style furniture is 1stDibs.
