Artistic perfection and ingenious proportions

Danish cabinetmaker Frits Henningsen designed the Coupé Sofa in 1936. Renowned for his exuberant personality as well as his exceptional sense of craftsmanship and attention to detail, Henningsen created an original work that was reintroduced by Carl Hansen & Søn in 2019. First presented at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Furniture Exhibition, the Coupé Sofa expresses Henningsen’s unique sense of proportion and design: The shoulder-height profile, angled rear les and elegant inner armrests combine for a design that shows a deep understanding of materials and skill. The Coupé Sofa is recreated according to careful measurements of the original piece and is manufactured with the same precise craftsmanship. Underneath the refined exterior lies a solid beech wood frame with foam padding and pocket springs for optimum sitting comfort. Crafted in solid walnut or oak and with exquisite textiles or leather using a demanding upholstery technique, the sofa is both understated and remarkable at the same time.

Designer
Renowned as an uncompromising designer, Frits Henningsen viewed quality craftsmanship as essential, and unlike most cabinetmakers, always designed his own furniture pieces. As a member of the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers Guild, Henningsen became a major driver of the furniture exhibitions of the period, gaining recognition for his perfectionist style and vibrant personality. He gave new expression to traditional designs and drew inspiration from the French Empire, rococo, and British 17th-century furniture.
