Danish Oak Two-Seater Bench with Pillows, Denmark ca. 1950s

$ 7,315
  • Description
    Reminiscent of the classic Windsor bench, this model is the Danish interpretation of the style. This two-seater bench blends high functionality, good quality natural materials, and subtle colours with simple lines, elegance and excellent craftsmanship.

    Models like this are often referred to as sofa benches, as they can serve as both, just as well in a hallway as in a living or bedroom. In the vein of Danish Modernism, this bench has a clear structure, with straight lines and softened edges. The emphasis is on the oak structure, which is firm, sturdy, but also light in its appearance. The spindles comprising the back are especially distinctive, and enhance the airiness of the design. What made – and still makes - this type of bench so popular is probably above all, the stylish shape and the simple functionality. The proportions of the construction are well-thought-out and designed perfectly to serve its function whilst adding a warm and cosy look to any interior. The cosiness is further enhanced by the stylish upholstered seat and back cushions, the former in a rectangular, and the latter in a round shape.

    From the handcrafted oak frame to the wooden spindles and tapered legs, the design talent is obvious. The natural beauty of the oak structure and its versatile grain is beautifully displayed throughout this bench, especially in the backrest, while the round, “floating” pillows cleverly break the mostly straight lines and further highlight the barred-back. Clever and high-quality, this Danish-made mid-century sofa bench is a Scandinavian staple, perfect to bring understated modernity to any space.
