Henning Kjærnulf 'Kurul' Armchair in Oak and Lelièvre Bouclé, Denmark, 1960s

About the Item

This striking armchair was designed by Henning (Henry) Kjærnulf in the 1960s. This particular model named 'Kurul' was produced by EG Kvalitetsmøbel in Denmark. This armchair in solid oak blends the classic kurul design with rounded, curved contours, featuring an upholstered seat and backrest. The oak frame is intricately carved and sculpted, demonstrating the craftsmanship of both the designer and the manufacturer. The chair could also serve effectively as a stylish addition to a desk or office setting. The chair is in a very good condition, the wood with a natural and even patina. Some minor, non-disturbing marks on the wood. The seat and backrest have been reconditioned and newly upholstered in a beautiful ivory Lelièvre Paris bouclé fabric. Kjærnulf's style with organic modern and sometimes brutalist references fits well in the Scandinavian modern tradition. His preference for raw and pure woods such as oak and his specific carved details can be considered in the more international context of the works of Charlotte Perriand, Pierre Chapo and Guillerme et Chambron, working in the same era.

  • Ignazio Gardella 'Digamma' Armchair in Emerald Green Lelièvre Fabric and Brass
    By Ignazio Gardella, Lelièvre Paris, Santa & Cole
    Located in The Hague, NL
    Designed by Ignazio Gardella in 1957, the Digamma lounge chair is a comfortable chair with roots in the late Italian modernist tradition. Its rational construction features two geometric sections - the rectangular upholstered back and seat - bound by a firm upholstered frame. The black metallic legs are finished off with Gardella's iconic brass 'duck' feet. The armchair has a three-position reclining backrest offering additional comfort and adjustability. This chair is a custom version realized by Santa & Cole for Kabinet Hubert, upholstered and sewn by hand in an emerald green Lelièvre fabric. This soft and dense fabric is a delicate combination of chenille and bouclé yarns. Ignazio Gardella was a member of the so-called third generation of the Modern Movement. He is considered one of the greatest exponents of Italian Rationalism, although he followed its principles in a much more personal way, searching to overcome its limitations. In 1957, he created the Digamma armchair...
