The Danes love to sit around the dining table, especially when they have guests coming. You might ending spending the entire evening there. This is one of the reasons why Danish Modern design especially are known for the chairs. The design and functionality. It needs to be immediately comfortable but also 5 hours down the road.
These chairs have been fully refurbished with new foam and fabric.
Andersen’s designs span seating, tables, and storage in well-crafted materials, such as rosewood and teak. His career paralleled the midcentury’s growing appreciation for Danish furniture designs, and he attracted international attention—particularly for coffee tables like the highly sculptural Smile Table.
Andersen worked steadily for his own firm—as well as Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian companies such as Trensum, CFC Silkeborg, Bramin, and Uldum Møbelfabrik—until he closed his shop in his eighties. He passed away in 1991.
