Svend Madsen Teak Cow-Horn Dining Chairs, Set of Six

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

These incredible Danish Modern teak sculptural dining chairs were designed by Svend Madsen - a designer mostly acclaimed for his gorgeous desks. Branded with the maker's mark, on the seat bottoms and the chair frames and yet, there is only one other mention of them anywhere on-line, so these are incredibly rare. Featuring a stunning backrest with flared armrests in the style of the Hans Wegner Cow-Horn chairs, but with his own personal flavour. Chair seats nestle into the frame and the set has been beautifully restored and reupholstered with 25 year top quality foam and a subtle blue or brown tweed upholstery. In excellent condition. Please note, one of the backrests on one of the chairs had a crack that has been professionally restored, is completely structurally sound and the line that remains is minor (see last photo). This impeccable set happens to look particularly stunning with our Hans Wegner teak dining table with three prong oak legs (see separate posting).
