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

About

Incredibly comfortable, exuberant, and superbly made pair of Danish lounge chairs perfectly capturing 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 and Flemming Lassen and the chairs were made to match the curved sofas that were all the rage in the 1930s and early 1940s. Most likely manufactured circa 1938-1945, as this style chairs were seen in manufacturer's catalogs from that time period. While the curved sofas from the era that the chairs were made to match are a little more common the chairs are rare. Making this set even more special is that they are slightly deeper and wider than what was the norm and it really adds to the look and comfort of the chairs. The chairs have been re-upholstered at a later point and the nice camel color mohair in very good condition. Should you wish we are able to re-upholster the chairs in a white merino lambswool that maintains the look and many of the properties of real fur at a cost of $500 per chair. The overall condition is excellent.
