Why choose mid-century Danish furniture

If you are looking to evoke the style and vibe of the 1950s and 60s then there’s no better way to do so than to carefully pick some vintage pieces of furniture for the spaces of your home. Add some mid-century modern or perhaps even some industrial elements to your social areas and you can very quickly add character and charm to rooms that may otherwise look bland and uninteresting. And looking to Denmark for pieces from this era is a great option if you love the clean lines of wooden furniture.

When we think of Danish furniture it is hard not to look consider chairs, tables and cabinetry made of teak or rosewood. These materials feature prominently here at Vinterior because so many of the mid-century era’s greatest designers produced eye-catching furniture using these materials.

Take, for instance, the works of Kai Kristiansen, Arne Vodder and Arne Jacobsen. While each designer took a very different approach to their furniture designs, all appreciated the concept of letting the natural material speak for itself.Whether it’s a lightly upholstered armchair that makes a clear feature of the wooden frame, a sleek and lightweight sideboard on hairpin metal legs or an elegant dressing table adorned with a beautifully designed mirror, there is a lot to inspire and excite us when we consider mid-century Danish furniture.

It is also important to note that Scandinavian style played an important role in the evolution of British design at this time. Look to the work of Stag, Nathan or G Plan at this time and the mid-century minimalist look followed very similar features.

Incorporating mid-century Danish furniture at home

While it is easy to think that Danish furniture works only in homes of today that embrace minimalism and prize woods like teak above all others, we actually believe that mid-century Danish furniture is incredibly versatile here at Vinterior. Opt for a vintage piece that shows signs of love and use over the years and you will be able to incorporate it easily into a shabby chic or even an industrial setting – be it a detached house or a city apartment.

Similarly, these pieces actually work well in neutral spaces that have clean and lightly styled spaces. For example, choose to feature a Danish dressing table or chest of drawers in a neutral bedroom environment and you can immediately add character where before there was none.
