In this office, American pieces inspired by Danish design are combined with pure Danish furniture like chairs by Peter Hvidt and Orla Molgaard, two designers we like very much :

Boxy Sofa, by Simplaform; unnamed sofa, by Jydsk Mobelvaerk; Goetz Sofa, by Herman Miller

Time-Life Executive Chair (ES 105), by Eames; FD-146 Chair, Peter Hvidt & Olga Molgaard ; Boxy Set, by Simplaform
