Rare Set of Eight Henning Kjærnulf Dining Chairs in Oak & Bouclé, Denmark, 1950s

Price Upon Request
  • Description
    This rare set of dining room chairs was designed by Henning (Henry) Kjærnulf in the late 1950s. The chairs were produced by Nyrup Møbelfabrik in Denmark. The set consists of eight chairs made of solid oak with a beautiful grain and colour. The sculptural design is marked by the distinct wing shape of the backrest and the rounded lines of the central back splat. Striking carved details can be found in the four legs and the three connecting spindles, adding to the organic, Danish modern aesthetic. The chairs are in overall very good condition, restored preserving the original, warm patina of the oak wood. The seats have been completely renewed and reupholstered in a beautiful ivory Rubelli bouclé fabric. Kjærnulf’s style with organic modern and sometimes brutalist references fits well in the Scandinavian modern tradition. His preference for raw and pure woods such as oak and his specific carved details can be considered in the more international context of the works of Charlotte Perriand, Pierre Chapo and Guillerme et Chambron, working in the same era.
