1930s Frits Henningsen Wingback Chair

About

This rare wingback chair was designed and made by Danish cabinetmaker Frits Henningsen in the mid-1930s. The particular model was exhibited at the 1933 exhibition held at the Industriforneningen in Copenhagen. A striking example of Henningsen's craftsmanship, this comfortable armchair is characterized by the elegant construction of the mahogany frame with its tilted back, and the fully sprung seat. The chair is in excellent condition. It has been entirely reconditioned and newly upholstered in a meadow green chenille fabric by Rubelli. We can provide a sample of the fabric upon request. The wood has been refinished. We’re able to provide you with a competitive and non-binding shipping quote within 48 hours. Please contact us to learn more about our variety of global shipping options, including express parcel shipping, white glove service and front door delivery.
