Børge Mogensen Sofa for Fredericia Stolefabrik

$6,000

About

Designer: Børge Mogensen. Manufacturer: Fredericia Stolefabrik. Period or model: Mid-Century Modern. Specs: Wood, leather. Condition: This Børge Mogensen sofa for Fredericia Stolefabrik is in good vintage condition with age appropriate wear. The wood base does have normal wear with age (dings, scratches, imperfections). There are a couple cracks in the back stretchers with one chunk out of the wood (pictured). The owners told us the sofa was perfect when they imported it, but customs damaged it. Overall it is sturdy and does not affect stability. The leather shows normal wear with imperfections with age and indentations (one leather strap is broken on the arm). Overall it shows well for its age and is usable as is (our team loves the character in this sofa). This is an amazing sofa with normal wear with age, it has not been touched with restoration. We love it! Dimensions: H 38 (96.52cm). L 80.25 (203.84cm). D 34 (86.36cm). Seat H 16 (40.64cm). Seat W 72.5 (184.15cm). Seat D 20.5 (52.07cm). Arm H 24 (60.96cm).

About the Designer

Børge Mogensen

Among the great mid-20th century Danish furniture designers, Børge Mogensen distinguished himself with his faith to traditional values of craftsmanship and honesty of materials. While peers such as Hans Wegner, Finn Juhl and Arne Jacobsen designed some of the most striking and now iconic furnishings of the era, Mogensen focused on making pieces that were simple, durable and comfortable — and in the long run perhaps more useful and better loved. Mogensen studied under and later worked for Kaare Klint, a master cabinetmaker whose chief tenets were quality of construction and simplicity of line. Klint was a classicist, who believed that furniture forms should evolve from those of historical models. So, too, in his way was Mogensen, as two of his best-known earlier pieces attest. His 1945 Spokeback Sofa, with hinged arms that can be lowered to facilitate lounging, is a reinterpretation of the venerable Knole settee. With the oval silhouette of its plywood backrest and waterdrop-shaped cutouts, Mogenson’s Shell chair, designed in 1949, can be seen as a novel take on early 19th century Empire side chairs. Yet Mogensen shared the aesthetical sensibilities of his most forward-looking colleagues. His cabinets deploy the same spare geometries and lushly figured woods as those of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and his disciple Florence Knoll, the chief difference being that Mies and Knoll used chrome steel for the frames and legs of their pieces. The brawny oak frames and slung leather seats and backrests of Mogensen’s Hunting chair (1950) and Spanish chair (1958) display the same hefty construction and appreciation of natural materials seen in the work of Charlotte Perriand and Sergio Rodrigues. As you will see from the furnishings on 1stDibs, Børge Mogensen designed for function more than sculptural effect. While his chairs may not be the first pieces in a décor to draw the eye, they are often the first to draw in those looking for a comfortable seat.
