Ole Wanscher for Poul Jeppesen Pair of Armchairs in Teak and Black Leather


Ole Wanscher for P. Jeppesens Møbelfabrik, pair of armchairs, model 'PJ412', teak, leather, Denmark, 1960s

Modest pair of dining chairs designed by Ole Wanscher in the 1960s. These chairs are very comfortable thanks to the remarkable wide seats and the slightly tilted backrests. This pair is made with a teak frame, which is crafted in a very sculptural way; slim legs and rounded, wider armrests form a beautiful combination.

Ole Wanscher (1903-1985) studied under Kaare Klint at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and worked at Klint’s design studio before becoming an independent furniture designer. While traveling through Egypt and Europe, Wanscher found inspiration that he incorporated into his own unique design aesthetic.

Please note that the leather shows patina and also signs of age and use. Therefore, we advise reupholstery before shipping. This can be done before shipping by our experienced craftsman in our own in-house restoration atelier. With high attention for the original, they make sure every piece retains its value and is ready for the many years to come.
