Frits Henningsen Lounge Chair with Ottoman in Original Burgundy Leather
Frits Henningsen, wingback chair and ottoman, red cognac leather, wood, Denmark, 1940s.
Classical wingback chair with accompanying footstool in patinated cognac leather. This chair and ottoman hold their original red leather upholstery. Therefore an expressive, yet admirable patina is visible on the leather. This is truly a high quality, comfortable lounge chair. Very refined lines and designed with high attention to detail. Beautiful curves are visible on the back, the wings and the armrests. The tapered wooden legs are a nice addition to the whole.
Frits Henningsen (1889-1965) was a cabinet maker. Relatively little has been written about this master cabinet maker. He had his own shop in Copenhagen. His main concerns were the users of his furniture and the solid quality of his work. All his works are created by his own workshop.
