Pair of Grete Jalk Model 118 armchairs in Teak for France & Daverkosen, 1950s

$ 5,555
  • Description
    Charming pair of Grete Jalk Model 118 armchairs in teak and fabric for France & Daverkosen from 1955. These two comfortable chairs are the first of the model 118 series designed by Grete Jalk and manufactured in 1955. The frames of these completely original examples are beautiful to look at. Let's start at the back. We see an interesting combination of the patinated teak legs, backrest, and webbing. If you look at the hind legs from the side, you will see that they lean slightly forward. A nice design solution by Grete Jalk at the time to guarantee the sturdiness of the chair and turn it into an aesthetically pleasing construction. The armrests, both with attractive wood drawings, are wide at the base and taper towards the front legs. From the rear part, we see that the bottom line slopes upwards and disappears nicely in a connection with the front legs. The seats, therefore, lean back slightly and offer great seating comfort. Apart from a single superficial scratch on the frames, we have two chairs here that have withstood the test of time very well. We would, however, advise you to reupholster the seatings. You can find these chairs in the Design Museum Denmark under reference number RP03605.
