Danish Leather Wing Armchair in the Mogensen Style
This is a very stylish leather armchair in the style of the Danish architect and furniture designer, Borge Mogensen.
This is an extract from a Danish furniture design website: Functional is the word which best describes Børge Mogensen’s design. The majority of his furniture was designed with industrial production in mind and is characterized by strong and simple lines. His true genius is to be found in his almost scientific analysis of the functionality of a piece of furniture.
The chair has a high back and wings. It is as small as you will find, because there's no bulk to the arms or back, but the seat is generous, and with the sloping back it is very comfortable.
The colour is a popular cognac brown: rich, warm and lived in. This is exactly how I like to buy them, this is an antique from the mid twentieth century. Classic design with natural materials and colours, this chair will fit into either a modernist or traditional setting.
The chair was designed in the 1950s but was probably made in the 70s, it is in very good original condition, and has been cleaned and waxed.
There are a pair of low back armchairs in the same style and colour on another page.
