50 years of the EJ 220

Erik Jørgensen's iconic EJ 220 sofa has its 50th anniversary in 2020

Over the past 50 years, the sofa has proven its worth through both its excellent quality and its timeless design. The sofa is as relevant and popular today as ever.

A sofa for everyone

The EJ 220 was very well received by the Danish people, and it quickly found its way into many homes and living rooms. The design met a demand for a sofa on which you could just relax and unwind. With its fully padded back and armrests, and soft pillows, the EJ 220 was just that.

The sofa that became an archetype

The sofa has become synonymous with good craftsmanship and classic Danish design. In addition to being the only piece of furniture in the Erik Jørgensen collection that was designed by Erik Jørgensen himself, the EJ220 is also one of Erik Jørgensen’s most popular and best-selling designs.

The sofa that was the foundation for the box sofa

Designed by the first Jørgensen-generation

Erik Jørgensen was educated upholsterer and founded, in 1954, a small workshop, where his expertise in upholstering furniture was clear.

The foundation in our collection

During the 1970s, he designed the EJ 220, which later became one of the foundations in the collection at Erik Jørgensen Møbelfabrik, as well as becoming the archetype for the classic Danish box sofa. The sofa has become synonymous with good craft and classic Danish design.

Aesthetic and simple

The idea behind the design was that the sofa should have great comfort, while being aesthetically and simply in its expression. The sofa is available with and without buttons in the backseat, in the same leather or textile as the sofa or in another contrast color. It is also possible to vary the appearance in the form of different side pads, either via a cushion or further square pillows.
