About the Chieftain Sofa

At Designmuseum Danmark in Copenhagen where the Guild Exhibitions originally took place, the sofa is still part of the museum’s permanent collection of modern Danish furniture.

Today, this extraordinary piece of furniture is manufactured in a very exclusive, handcrafted version in walnut. The sofa is upholstered by hand in Denmark from extra-large hides of the finest quality.
