PK31 Three Seat Sofa (2002)
Made by Fritz Hansen
This is a Poul Kjaerholm PK31 3-seat sofa, initially designed by Poul Kjaerholm for Fritz Hansen in 1958. This particular example was produced in 2002 in Denmark. We currently have two matching PK31 sofas in black leather in our inventory, priced individually. Their design features a chromium-plated steel frame and base, and has down-filled cushions with buttery calf-leather upholstery. Kjaerholm was most concerned with the quality of materials chosen for application with his designs, defining what true, understated luxury feels like.
This sofa measures 29.9 inches deep, 78 inches wide, and 29.9 inches high. It has a seat height of 14.5 inches, and an arm height of 18.75 inches. The leather upholstery is in lovely condition and has only gotten better with age, including several small scratches and spots. The back of the sofa shows light sun fading. The frame is in terrific shape with no rust or pitting and shows only light patina on the legs. Overall, this sofa is in very good condition with light wear. Please see photos. The sofa is guaranteed as an authentic Fritz Hansen example and came from the executive suite of a hedge fund in New York City with countless other Fritz Hansen piece. The sofas have paper labels within the cushions that are dated and that I was able to validate as Fritz Hansen thanks to an upholsterer colleague who worked at Fritz Hansen during that time.
