Description This Danish cabinetmaker chair often referred to as “Øreklapstolen” or “ear flap chair” is a great example of the Danish mid-century modern aesthetic.

Danish design is torn between epochs; it is a term that accommodates both the functional craftsmanship of the 1950s Golden Age, as well as the present-day appreciation of Hygge. This is without a doubt a difficult task, however, this chair manages to encapsulate both ideals. From the welcoming beech frames and the sculptural arms to the cozy upholstery, this chair expresses a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment. This earflap chair has a distinctive shape with a high back and two “ears” that encompass the sitter. The armrests are gently curved outwards, while the slightly tapered legs give this chair a balanced appearance. The ergonomic design and the removable soft seat cushions offer a comfortable sitting position.

The timeless design of this chair is a frontrunner of what is considered mid-century Danish Modern. The beechwood has a beautiful patina and stands out thanks to the upholstery in a premium light fabric

In good vintage condition. Wear consistent with age and use. The chair has been recently reupholstered in premium fabric.
