Holger Georg Jensen for Tønder Møbelværk Model 97 Upholstered Teak Rocker, 1958

$2,200

About

A fantastic Danish modern Model 97 teak rocking chair designed in 1958 by Holger Georg Jensen for Tønder Møbelværk, freshly dressed in vintage red upholstery. Piece pre-dates Jensen’s work done for Kubus in the early-to-mid-1960s. Gorgeous hand-crafted solid teak frame distinguished by striking space age-style boomerang-shaped runner and seat support sides. Tall seat back with robust shaped and tapered sides. Arm support joined to stretcher with a handsome exposed brass screw detail. Recently upholstered in ruby red bouclette fabric from the 1940s with two-button seat back that matches the original execution.
