Mogens Voltelen Cabinet Maker 'Copenhagen' Chairs
Mogen Voltelen for cabinetmaker Niels Vodder, lounge chair model 'Københavnerstolen', teak, walnut, beech and pine, cognac brown leather, Denmark, 1930s.
This Copenhagen lounge chair is designed by Mogens Voltelen. This variant on the classic Copenhagen chair by Voltelen is executed in an unparalled manner. The walnut frame features inlayed strips in the middle. The armrests are made of teak and covered with cognac leather and brass nails. The chair shows beautiful lines in the aged beech. This can especially be seen on the arched legs. The leather strap armrests make a nice mirrored line to the curved legs. This sculptural lounge chair is covered in cognac saddle leather with furniture nails. The design is inspired on classical Spanish folk chairs in addition of Danish modern elements. The cognac leather on this chair shows a deep, rich patina on the leather. Please be aware that the original leather is still present on this piece and is in beautiful aged condition, which makes it into a truly unique item.
