Description

Have you ever heard of Danebridge Associates? Neither have we, but they make one heck of a sofa and clearly had access to some of the most magnificent walnut available. Designed in the manner of Grete Jalk and manufactured by Danebridge Associates and made in Canada. The iconic wood frame style was made famous by Danish designers and widely adopted in North America. Note the remarkable subtle detailing in the wood frame. Angled back legs add visual modern dynamism. This angle gives a gentle reclined position to the couch, enhancing comfort. The wide, sculpted arms taper towards the rear and meld into the backrest with a smooth, seamless upward slope. The soft, leopard print fabric makes a bold swanky statement and contrasts remarkably with the rich walnut frame. 14 blade vertical supports adorn the backrest to provide structural integrity and visual beauty. This Danish style mid-century modern couch is truly timeless.

The Restoration: We were lucky that the previous owner updated the sofa with new, high quality dense foam and had a skilled upholsterer re-do the original material in this awesome leopard print. It saved us the expense and allowed us to concentrate on the supports and frame. As you can see, the solid black walnut has an amazing dark amber patina that penetrates to the core. The arms needed attention, so our cabinet shop removed them and did a complete refinish and fixed some minor superficial cracks before reassembling. The back and deck section just needed to be cleaned an oiled. Of course we replaced all the old webbing with commercial grade, flexible nylon strapping that’s tight as a drum. The new webbing still has a flexibility that adds comfort to the cushions.

Danish Modern: is a style of minimalist furniture and housewares from Denmark associated with the Danish design movement. In the 1920s, Kaare Klint embraced the principles of Bauhaus modernism in furniture design, creating clean, pure lines based on an understanding of classical furniture craftsmanship coupled with careful research into materials, proportions and the requirements of the human body. With designers such as Grete Jalk and Hans Wegner and associated cabinetmakers, Danish furniture thrived from the 1940s through the 1960s. Adopting mass-production techniques and concentrating on form rather than just function, Finn Juhl contributed to the style’s success. Danish housewares adopting a similar minimalist design such as cutlery and trays of teak and stainless steel and dinnerware such as those produced in Denmark for Dansk in its early years, expanded the Danish modern aesthetic beyond furniture.
