Little Mother Sofa

With the relaunch of this sofa, which we will refer to as the “Little Mother”, we have ventured into the tale of a romantic Danish poet and his wife. They lived in a small farmhouse, decorated with a sofa designed by Finn Juhl. This stage became a staple of Danish folk culture through the comic strip “The Poet and the Little Mother” by Jørgen Mogensen, which was published in Politiken on a daily basis from 1950 to 2003. This makes it nothing short of the world’s longest lasting comic strip!

The story goes: master joiner Niels Vodder, who produced Finn Juhl’s furniture, gifted his daughter Kirsten the prototype of a small sofa in 1945. Kirsten Vodder was married to the poet Frank Jæger, whose favorite activity was to lie on the sofa and ponder the events of life. The close friend of the family and illustrator Jørgen Mogensen would spend a lot of time at their house, which eventually inspired the comic strip.
