Pair of Danish Leather Armchairs in the Mogensen Style

A pair of very stylish leather armchairs 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 chairs have low backs.  They are as small as you will find, because there's no bulk to the arms or back, but the seats are generous, and with the sloping backs they are very comfortable.

The colour is a popular cognac brown: rich, warm and lived in.  This is exactly how I like to buy them, they are antiques from the mid twentieth century.  Classic design with natural materials and colours, these chairs will fit into either a modernist or traditional setting.

The chairs were designed in the 1950s but were probably made in the 70s, they are in very good original condition, and have been cleaned and waxed.

The measurements are 28½ inches (72 cm) wide, 29 inches (74 cm) deep and 28 inches (71 cm) high, and the seat is 17 inches (43 cm) high.

There is a high back armchair in the same style and colour on another page.

Delivery can be arranged to any part of the country.  As a guide, delivery to London and most parts of England would be £80.  We use an experienced carrier that is well used to moving antique furniture with the appropriate care.  Collection is, of course, welcome.
