Danish armchairs: a brief history

Danish design truly became an influence on these shores in the 20th century. And more specifically, Danish and Scandinavian stylings began to dominate in the mid-century. From the rounder, scalloped shape of the 1940s to the square crisp lines of the 1950s and the luxuriously padded opulence of the 60s, Vinterior’s Danish armchairs reflect the mood of their particular era. The austere look of the 1950s gives way to the increasing feeling of optimism and colour of the 60s and 70s. Many of the pieces are teak framed – a favoured wood of the 60s and 70s – which has the power to add warmth and depth to any living space in the home.

Danish armchairs: in design

Crisp, square lines and A-frames are right on trend at the moment for a contemporary setting, and so the retro characteristics of Danish armchairs are proving as popular today as they were when they first appeared in the 20th century. Unlike the decadent upholstery of the early 20th and late 19th century, Danish armchairs of the 50s and 60s tend towards a plain look that achieves a clean and functional finish.

If anything was to encapsulate that 1970s vibe it is the egg-shaped armchair. And here at Vinterior, you can often find this iconic look featured in our listings. A deep powder blue version can make a real statement in the corner of a minimalist, eclectic living room or study. As a reading chair, swivel chairs of this time also offer the right mix of comfort and design and look good in any space.

Browse our online marketplace and you will find Danish armchairs by a range of famous designers of the last century, each capable of adding character and a welcome talking point in your home.

For lounge luxury, why not choose one of our many leather chairs from popular Danish designers sold in both pairs and as individual pieces. Leather always looks elegant and timeless in any setting, and it tolerates wear better than many fabrics – evolving slowly into a shabby chic look. A pair of vintage leather Gote armchairs with beautiful buttoned cushions in cognac leather would be certain to make a statement in even the most restrained living spaces, particularly when set on a rose stained bamboo frame. For elegant relaxation, a sumptuous pair of burgundy leather armchairs with simple buttoning on the top cushion and a beautiful curved shape to the arms is perfect for the fireside teamed with a vibrantly coloured throw.
