Rocking Chair #45 by Hans J. Wegner for Tarm Stole & Mobelfabrik, 1960s

$2,889.43

About

By Wegner for Tarm Stole & Mobelfabrik Less common Hans J. Wegner rocking chair with the horizontal back rest supports from the Tarm furniture factory that ran as a subsidiary under FDB Møbler from Fredericia. This particular chair has the orignal green lacquer finish and comes with a lush patina with paint superbly worn off on the edges of the armrest. It has the original leather straps and pillow, although the fabric of the pillow could use a refurbishment. We work with a professional reupholsterer, so if you choose a fabric it can be exactly as you want it. The seat rest is papercord and in original aged condition. Overall this chair is in a very good vintage condition.

About the Designer

Hans J. Wegner

Best known for his chairs and seating pieces — though a master of many furniture types like sofas and tablesHans Wegner was a prolific designer whose elegant, often ebullient, forms and devotion to the finest methods in joinery made "Danish Modern" a popular byword for stylish, well-made furniture in the mid-20th century.

Wegner considered himself a carpenter first and a furniture designer second. Like his peers Arne Jacobsen and Finn Juhl, Wegner believed that striking aesthetics in furniture were based on a foundation of practicality: a chair must be comfortable and sturdy before it is chic.

In keeping with that tenet, several of Wegner’s best chair designs, seen in dealer listings below, have their roots in traditional seating forms. The Peacock chair (designed in 1947) is a throne-like adaptation of the Windsor chair; pieces from the China chair series (begun in 1944) as well as the 1949 Wishbone chair, with its distinctive Y-shaped back splat, are derived from 17th-century Ming seating pieces, as is the upholstered Ox chair (1960). Wegner’s comfy Papa Bear chair (1951) is an almost surreally re-scaled English wingback chair.

Wegner’s most representative piece, the Round chair (1949), gained a footnote in political history when it was used on the TV stage of the first Kennedy-Nixon debate of 1960. That chair, along with Wegner’s more bravura designs, for example the 1963 Shell chair, with its curved surfboard-shaped seat, bring a quietly sculptural presence to a room. Wegner was a designer who revered his primary material — wood — and it shows. His wood gathers patina and character with age; every Hans Wegner piece testifies to the life it has led.
