$8,500

About

A Scandinavian Modern armchair designed by Helge Vestergaard Jensen. This high back chair features a dynamically shaped back, solid teak wood frame, and is upholstered with black leather. Chair is in original condition with lovely patinated leather. Produced by master cabinetmaker Peder Pedersen in Denmark, circa 1950s. Helge Vestergaard Jensen was a Danish furniture designer whose work is characterized by his use of minimal construction in order to obtain simple and elegant results. His sense of craftsmanship, detail and his uncompromising approach to design, which was never mass produced, is what makes his extremely limited inventory in such high demand.
