Description This Danish mid-century lounge chair with the pair of matching ottomans is a great example of the unification of comfort and delicate design elements.

With its rounded edges, cosy, premium upholstery and soft colour, this chair and ottomans are ideal to blend a stroke of modernity to any space, with a nod to comfort and simple artistry. From the frame to the upholstery, this lounge chair and ottomans guarantee quality and longevity. Although these virtues are important, design never fell short either for Danish cabinetmakers. In the case of this lounge chair, the carved oak legs and round edges stand out even under the fabric. The voluptuous shape is a result of the upholstered, winged backrest that embraces the sitter, complimented by the soft seat and armrests. Furthermore, the round front legs and slim, slightly tapered back legs are visually interesting details.

We have added this pair of matching, upholstered ottomans to provide a playful a touch, while also providing additional comfort. The three pieces of this set are all upholstered in a premium alpaca and wool blend bouclé fabric. Thanks to this combination of materials, the set is extremely soft and comfortable.

In great vintage condition. Wear consistent with age and use. The set has been recently reupholstered in a premium alpaca and wool blend bouclé fabric. The ottomans are a later addition.

About the designer:
The practical and comfortable designs of Danish cabinetmakers defined mid-20th century modern seating. The Danish Cabinetmakers focused on minimalist design executed by expertly skilled craftsmen.

Works from the Danish Cabinet-Makers' Guild is a concept of its own in collectible design. The Cabinet-Makers' Guild began annual exhibitions in 1927 in Copenhagen. The group formed an exhibit showing each year in October the quality furniture made to drawings by gifted architects. The exhibition took place each year, without interruption, for forty years. A number of successful Danish Design collaborations were formed during this time between cabinetmakers and architects.

Danish Modernism has influenced Scandinavian furniture to a great degree, defined by minimalism, simplicity, and functionality. The muted colours and gentle designs make Danish mid-century furniture an ideal addition to contemporary living spaces. Additionally, master cabinet makers were highly aware of body proportions, prioritizing comfort just as much as the visual qualities.

The works of master cabinet makers – such as this chair – are of the highest quality, both in terms of materials and craftsmanship. Cabinet makers take the art of working with wood one step further, and focus on the finer details of what can be created with the material. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that numerous master cabinet makers are part of the renowned Danish Culture Canon (Danish: Kulturkanonen). The canon contains no more than 108 works of cultural excellence, based on works with a useful function and that are still recognisable today. This small armchair is the perfect illustration of Danish design, and the work of a true cabinet maker. ~H.
