The Elizabeth Lounge Chair & Ottoman by Audo Copenhagen is a beautifully well-proportioned design that has a majestic elegance that underpins its royal name. Originally called the Model U56, it was later dubbed Elizabeth Chair after Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip purchased two of them during an official visit to Denmark in 1958.
The chair's sculpted armrests combined with the low seat and sleigh-like back make it a prime example of Danish Modernism. The addition of the sculptural ottoman adds even more comfort to this exquisite design.
