Glad I have my own photo of this famous three legged chair, taken in the Copenhagen Design Museum.

In 2010 one sold at Phillips for £6,250.

Two sold for in 2012 for $10,000.

FAVN by Jaime Hayon for Fritz Hansen

As made evident by my posting here on the Chair Blog and as one might remember from my introductory post, I appreciate chairs more than other seating objects. But, every once in a while, I would come across a stool or a bench that would really tickle my fancy and here comes the first sofa I feature! Both simple and stunning, it’s great for just about any space and I really like the variety of color options.

FAVN is the Danish name for embrace, but now it’s also a new sofa by Jaime Hayón for Fritz Hansen.

“I wanted the sofa to be based on a shell. A shell being hard on the outside, soft and welcoming on the inside,” explains Hayón. “I wanted to create a form that embraces you, something really organic — that’s why we named it FAVN.” FAVN will be available in ten color selections: light grey, sage green, clear beige, taupe, chocolate, moutarde, red, violet, dark blue and black.
