Great reasons to buy the Menu Knitting Lounge Chair

  • The knitting chair is aptly named given that it features special cut-outs for resting the elbows when knitting. It’s also great for use when reading.
  • Perfect for small spaces due to its enveloping form that gives it a relatively small footprint.
  • Following a limited edition run after its design in 1951 the Knitting chair became a design classic and a much sought after collectible. By reissuing it, Menu are now giving you the chance to get your hands on your very own.


Why you'll love this mid-century modern lounge chair

The Knitting Lounge Chair was originally design by Ib Kofod-Larsen in 1951. Released as a limited edition it soon became a design classic and a much sought after collectible. Reissued in 2018 by Danish design brand Menu, this elegant, inventive chair is set to be as popular today as it ever has been.

Defined by an exposed, triangular construction with gently curved seat and back the Knitting Lounge Chair is an affirmation of Kofod-Larsen’s  reputation as a master of proportion and unexpected, sculptural form. Ideally pitched for relaxation, the chair takes its name from the distinctive cut-outs used for resting the elbows when knitting, or reading.

Beautiful from every angle, the Knitting Chair’s enveloping form gives it a relatively small footprint that means that it is perfectly placed in small spaces as well as more spacious ones.

The design also stands out on comfort – the result of Kofod-Larsen’s constant care to ensure ideal angles and lumbar support. The clean, sculptural lines – achieved through the designer’s close work with joiners – and the high-end, natural materials make for an unforgettable, conversation-sparking silhouette.

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
