In the spirit of leif’s threads on the Case of the Two Hundevads and Case of the Two Fredericias, I thought I’d add a third thread here that discusses the Case of the Two Pedersens. . .
Last summer I posted a Mid Century Desk Quiz #2 thread which discussed an interesting secretary design. The Danish Furniture Index had credited it as designed by Ib Kofod-Larsen, and made by Peder Pedersen, based upon an ad in Mobilia 1956.
It seemed to be an odd attribution as the piece did not resemble other KL designs, and as the thread pointed out, besides the DFI, there was no other documented connection between KL and the cabinetmaker, Peder Pedersen. The DFI claimed to have four designs executed by the two.
