Pair of Leather and Fir Bernstorffsminde Mobelfabrik Armchairs
Fir, leather, linen
28" high x 26 1/4" wide x 25" deep
These Danish chairs from the 1970s are deceptively simple. The joinery of the wood frame is marvelous, as is the surface treatment of the wood itself which allows the grain to speak so beatifully. We like the subtle bow of the arms. Also, unlike a similar safari chair made by the same cabinetmakers, the back is secured, so that the sitter is fully supported.
The linen-backed leather is newer than the frame, and both are in excellent condition.
