Fatty Sofa

The Fatty is available in the following configurations: 3 seater sofa, 4 seater sofa and above, chaise lounge sofa, corner sofa and sofa with open end.


With regards to materials, this modern sofa is available in fabric or leather upholstery.


15 years ago, Jens Juul Eilersen, designed the Baseline couch. With its depth, broad armrests and excellent comfort, it became one of Eilersen’s greatest successes. Jens Juul Eilersen has returned to his drawing table and reinterpreted the sofa which gained the Eilersen brand international recognition.


New ideas are generally born when Jens Juul Eilersen opens his sketchpad. For example, the Baseline was designed to inaugurate Eilersen’s new factory and production facilities.


The Fatty sofa has a wide, low back and armrests and a deep seat. The combination of elegant and practical features makes the Fatty suitable for placing in the middle of a room, like a sculpture. The wide armrest is a practical place for a tray, a book or simply as a comfortable headrest or a supportive armrest.


Culmination of furniture knowledge

The Fatty is a culmination of Jens Juul Eilersen’s knowledge of how a couch must be dimensioned and constructed. What dimensions are required to make it appear elegant despite its size and its many cushions, and how to build a base of solid Scandinavian pine, upholstered with a sandwich construction of stable foam of varying stiffness so that it does not lose its shape or comfort. Just like Eilersen’s other sofas, the Fatty comes with removable covers so that can always be replaced should you desire a different textile.


Jens Juul Eilersen’s concept for the Fatty was to provide a shell and leave it up to the individual to decide the final result. Whether it consists of symmetrical or asymmetrical modules is entirely up to each individual.
