Normann Copenhagen expands the Era lounge range with a two-seat sofa

Normann Copenhagen expands the Era lounge range with a two-seat sofa

The popular Simon Legald designed Era lounge series from Normann Copenhagen has been expanded with a two-seat sofa.

With well-proportioned design, a sharp silhouette and a contemporary expression, the Era DNA is clearly visible in the sofa’s soft curves and sleek lines, expressing a sophisticated calm that invites the sitter to pure and unreserved relaxation.

The idea of the small sofa is now again highly popular and relevant following several years of domination from larger sofas. This simple design of Era, with its tight-fitted upholstery and wooden legs, originated in the blossoming functionalism of the 1930s and ’40s as a rebellion against the bulky, Victorian style of the time. This drives home a modernity that sets the Era series apart from other sofas.


Today, there is a growing need for more flexible furnishings, in both public and private spaces. The practical size of the Era sofa allows it to easily accommodate furnishing needs in both large and small homes. This is combined with an incredibly strong construction that makes it well suited for public spaces.

Era combines modern manufacturing methods with traditional furniture craftsmanship, in a timeless and characterful design. “It took a long time to get the proportions and the interplay between the soft curves and the tight lines of the shell completely right,” says Simon Legald, “It was crucial, that the upholstery and the stitching was carried out with the utmost artisanal precision. One nice detail, for example, is that we did not use canvas, but instead upholstered the sofa with textile across the entire shell. For the seat cushion, we have prioritised a solution using custom-cut foam, so that it sits perfectly inside the seat.”

Just like the series’ lounge chairs, the Era sofa is available with frames in oak, walnut, black lacquered steel or chrome, and with a rocking frame option also available in chrome.
