Danish 1940s Pair of Viggo Boesen Style Lounge or Club Chairs in Lambswool

$12,000per set


Incredibly comfortable, exuberant, and superbly made, these chairs perfectly capture the essence of 1940s Danish design coming out of the Art Deco era and into the midcentury. The curved backrests and low slung proportions and block feet in beechwood clearly hint at inspiration from Viggo Boesen but the chairs actually match the curved sofas for that Slagelse was known for. Most likely manufactured around 1942-1945, as the chairs are seen in the manufacturer's winter catalog from December 1943. Slagelse Mobelvaerk was a famous maker for many of the great designers of the era such as Flemming Lassen and Viggo Boesen. Perfect new upholstered condition, covered in a soft and warm 100% Australian merino wool fleece maintaining the look and many of the properties of genuine fur.
