    Title: Mid-Century Modern Model 1140 High-Back Lounge Chair in Walnut and New Upholstery by Jens Risom For Jens Risom Designs, USA, c. 1960's

    About: Introducing a rare, fully restored Model 1140 high-back lounge chair designed by the influential Jens Risom. This iconic 1140 features new upholstery, redone in a fabulous vintage-styled heavy weight burnt orange tweed, which was meticulously sewn in the same pattern and scheme as the original and is in showroom condition. All set atop a gorgeous solid black walnut base with exceptional old-growth woodgrains.

    Jens Risom is widely considered to be a pioneer in introducing Danish modern furniture to the United States through early work with the Knoll company and to a greater extent through his own company, which thrived in the 1950s and ’60s. Born in Denmark in 1916, Risom emigrated to the U.S. where he teamed up with Hans Knoll to start a decades-long collaboration between the two icons. Risom served in World War II under Gen. George Patton and upon his return to the civilian world he founded his own company, Jens Risom Design, in 1946.

    Jens Risom Design produced a long line of accomplished pieces that ended up in such places as the Oval Office and his "Risom Lounge Chair" is a part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Throughout his life, Risom stayed true to the fundamental Danish approach to modernism, with its emphasis on traditional values and the human necessity for warmth, beauty and simplicity.

    This lovingly restored Model 1140 high-back lounger is a true collector's item, perfect for those who appreciate the beauty and craftsmanship of Mid-Century Modern furniture as a whole and the timeless works of Jens Risom himself. With its unique solid walnut frame, elegant design and striking new upholstery this chair is sure to make a BOLD statement in any living or office space. Make it yours today before it's gone forever.
