  3. How is the Carl Hansen Sideways Sofa different from a traditional sofa?
  4. The Carl Hansen Sideways Sofa is a unique and modern take on the traditional sofa.

This distinctive design also features classic materials such as wood, paper cord, and high-quality upholstery textile, giving it a timeless look that will complement any décor.
  5. Why was the Sideways Sofa by Rikke Frost designed sideways?
  6. Rikke Frost designed the Sideways Sofa to combine classic materials with a modern asymmetric shape. The steam-bent backrest is shaped from solid wood and woven paper cord for a light, elegant expression, while the seat and back are padded and upholstered for optimal comfort. By turning the sofa sideways, Rikke Frost creates a unique and inviting furniture piece that encourages both comfort and conversation.
  7. How long will the Sideways Sofa last?
  8. The Sideways Sofa has a 5 year warranty, so you can be sure it will last for many years to come. The sofa is made in Denmark and created by award-winning Danish designer Rikke Frost, so you know it is made with quality in mind. The distinctive design eschews the traditional forward-facing sofa in favor of a sideways position that encourages more natural conversation, making it a great addition to any home.
  9. What are the sofa's dimensions?

The back is made with natural papercord, and the seat is made with foam on plywood and MDF. The sofa is available in a variety of upholsteries.

Rikke Frost

As far as Rikke Frost is concerned, one thing is certain: Life is too short for working with something one does not like. That she gets high on impressions during the Milan design week makes it abundantly clear that she enjoys her life as a designer. She was born in Southern Jutland, Denmark in 1973 and qualified as an architect from the School of Architecture in Aarhus, Denmark, in 2000. Before starting her own drawing office in Aarhus in 2004, she worked for a number of years at Hammel Mibelfabrik and Heal & Son in London.

        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!

        Beautiful and high quality furniture!

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

        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.

        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.

        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.

        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.

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

        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.

        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.

        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.

        Great range of products.

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

        Excellent communication and speedy delivery...

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

        Very good service, great communication and arrived very promptly

        Thank you

        First class service.

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

        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.

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