Mid-Century Modern Svend Madsen Beech Wood Lounge Chair

US$3,295Asking Price

About

This stunning Danish made lounge chair by Bowa is one of the finest wood frame sofa’s we have seen from the period. Vintage early 1960s, Svend Age Madsen expands on the quintessential wood frame armchair to create something truly special. The arched arms are a unique feature seen only in work by Kai Kristiansen. The difference with Madsens' arms are a gently turned knife edge that cuts a smart silhouette. The front apron is embellished with a gentle bow, another subtle but elegant touch. The back view delights just as much as the front with its unusual Grete Jalk style wide slats. Look closely where the arm terminates and meets the back. Here you’ll see brass patina hardware that compliments the dark solid beech wood frame. Our restoration team has brought this piece back to its original grandeur. Beech frame has been completely refinished. The cushions are made of new foam and rest upon a bed of new webbing support straps. The decking is new and matches the same blue fabric on the cushions.
