Fabulous group of six mid century Danish modern teak and rosewood dining Chairs. Graceful contouring in the teak backrest flows beautifully into the solid rosewood legs. Elegant minimalism and design at its best.
The Restoration: The FMV team did an excellent job of making these dining chairs look brand new. Back joints have been glued and clamped to ensure years of rigidity. Every inch was professionally detailed top to bottom. All of the chairs have been reupholstered with new, commercial grade black vinyl by our in-house upholstress. She also beefed up the seats by adding an extra layer of foam.
About Mid Century Danish Modern: 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 Arne Jacobsen 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.
