The Spanish chair by Mogensen (vintage)
Designer: Børge Mogensen
Such a handsome chap! The wood and leather Spanish Chair is Danish designer Borge Mogensen’s masterly interpretation of a traditional type of chair often found in areas influenced by ancient Islamic culture – from Andalusia to northern India. Mogensen drew inspiration from a trip to Spain in 1958. He modernised the shape, eliminating the elaborate carvings while retaining the important feature: the broad armrests that give the chair character and provide a practical place to put a glass or cup. The combination of oak and butt leather gives a strong, rustic appearance but also Scandinavian at the same time.
This vintage version is in excellent condition and was manufactured by Fredericia in Denmark in 1958.
