Alfred Christensen Armchair for Slagelse Møbelfabrik, Denmark 1940s

$ 3,563
  • Description
    Danish Modern focused more on the aesthetics of modern design whilst employing the exquisite technique and material familiarity of highly skilled craftsmen known as cabinetmakers. Alfred Christensen’s present armchair in this style is a rare and exquisite example of this.

    Clean and pure lines define this armchair that are coupled with expert craftsmanship and delicate research into proportions, materials and the requirements of the human body, adapting design to modern-day needs. Adopting the trend of abandoning ornamentation to benefit the form, Christensen maintained the beauty and warmth inherent to traditional Danish cabinetmaking. In consequence, this armchair has a beautiful, warm look with rounded edges and an open look. The only ornamentation is the piping cord that runs along the edges of the body. The unique colour of the velour upholstery in combination with the dark, stained beech legs create warm elegance, perfect to bring a modern touch to any space.

    While Danish designers, including Alfred Christensen, had many principles, above all, all designers believed that design could certainly be used to improve people's lives. Elegant and functional, this armchair model is certain to do exactly that. The designer along with the manufacturer, Slagelse Møbelfabrik, assures this armchair’s quality and timelessness.
