Frits Henningsen, sofa in mahogany and pink fabric, Denmark, 1930s. This classic sofa was designed and produced by master cabinet maker Frits Henningsen around the 1930s. The basic design is well balanced, showing an interesting contrast between the straight lines of the solid mahogany frame and the almost theatrical curves of the armrests. The sofa shows great attention for proportions, as well as the outstanding craftsmanship Henningsen's work is famous for. The comfort provided by this inviting sofa is very pleasant, which is emphasized by the gently curved armrests. This specific model is meant to be placed against a wall. 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 by his own workshop. Please note that this sofa is in good condition but the upholstery shows signs of age and use, and cannot be used directly. Before shipping, reupholstery is necessary which our in-house atelier can take care of for you. Our experienced craftsmen are experts in restoring design pieces with high attention to retain their value and authenticity.
