Designed by Ib Kofod-Larsen, Audo Copenhagen's Elizabeth Lounge Chair embodies Danish Modern elegance with high-quality materials and ergonomic comfort.

Lounge Chair Overview

The Elizabeth Lounge Chair, known as the Model U56, acquired its royal name after Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip purchased two during a 1958 visit to Denmark. The exquisitely designed chair embodies the sophisticated allure of Danish Modern furniture.

High-Quality Construction

Made with kiln-dried FSC-certified hardwood and plywood, the cosy and ergonomic chair is built to last. Its sledge-like frame provides structural integrity and ergonomic comfort, while the high-density foam and plywood ensure long-lasting, comfortable seating.

Exquisite Design Details

The Elizabeth Lounge Chair stands as a prime example of Danish Modern design, with its sculpted armrests, leather upholstery, and sleigh-like back. The CNC-carved wooden parts are polished and oiled by hand for a silk-smooth finish, and the chair is available in oak or walnut, with different upholstery options.

Human-Centreed Design

Audo Copenhagen's Elizabeth Lounge Chair showcases majestic elegance and is designed with captivating details. The high-quality materials and thoughtful human-centreed design ensure each piece embodies Audo's purpose of creating strong, long-lasting connections and a beautiful life.

Adaptable Aesthetic

With Audo's soft minimalism aesthetic philosophy, the Elizabeth Lounge Chair adapts to diverse architectural styles and is suited for both residential and commercial use. The classic design allows each piece to move to new homes, embodying the sense of community wherever it goes. This exceptional chair makes for a great addition to modern home decor.

        First class service.

        The Olson Baker team continue to deliver outstanding advice and product knowledge.

        It has been an absolute pleasure buying a lovely piece of furniture from Olsen + Baker. Russell has been a delight to deal with, keeping me informed at every step of the delivery, even down to which colour would fit with my decor - nothing was too much.

        I can’t recommend highly enough.

        Beautiful and high quality furniture!

        Excellent delivery and customer services, even during difficult times like Covid 19.

        Great range of products.

        Purchased a beautiful rug from here and had a smooth overall buying experience.

        Recently purchased a Nordic Style candle holder, which I had admired at a recent stay at a holiday home in Norfolk.  Product arrived very quickly. Contact via email from Jonathan. Excellent customer service and a gorgeous product too.

        Thank you Jonathan and all at Olson and Baker.

        Excellent product but more importantly during these difficult times was the customer service level and great delivery team ....

        take note Heal’s as you’ve not got a clue how to service customers

        Really excellent customer service. Can not recommend this company highly enough - the products are high quality and their communication with the customer is first class. Jonathon always responded promptly to any queries and was very helpful.

        I would definitely buy from them again.

        Bought some lovely wine glasses as a gift, quick delivery, great customer service and high quality product.

        Would definitely buy from Olson and Baker again.

        Olson + Bakers service and products have been outstanding. I can't recommend Jonathan at Olson + Baker enough.

        He is an absolute star and has gone out of his way to provide superb service.

        The service is superb and the website is so intuitive! 10 out of 10! :D Lee

        Olson + Baker were wonderful to deal with.

        We purchased our item (a beautiful coat hook) but had to delay delivery due to a trip overseas.

        We weren't dealing with an automated system, just real people who cared enough to help.

        Lovely website, great communication, fast delivery and they came in at a price other shops couldn't compete with on the chair I was after.

        Easily recommended.

        Fantastic service, Jonathan was extremely helpful through my purchase.

        Definitely recommend and would use again.

        Thanks! Angela

        Fantastic customer service throughout the ordering process.

        Great products - really pleased with my order.

        So glad I came across Olson & Baker for my home accessories that I would not find elsewhere on the High Street.

        Excellent communication and speedy delivery...

        Couldn't have been better and will certainly buy from the company again.

        Beautiful item arrived earlier than indicated.

        Customer service informed me of this & then followed up after delivery to make sure it arrived safely.

        Highly recommend!

        Very good service, great communication and arrived very promptly
