What can you expect from vintage Danish furniture?

If you are looking to hark back to the mood of the sixties, seventies or eighties then you would do well to put some time aside to consider some of the leading Danish designers of the time. Danish furniture is noted for an almost pure clarity combined with a beautiful tactile finish favouring the deeper woods of teak and rosewood – perfect for those spaces in need of a statement piece. These pieces look equally at home in either a vintage or contemporary surround and combine effortless style with enormous functionality and practicality, they are designed to be used.

If it is eye-catching chairs for your living room, then why not begin with renowned designers such as Arne Jacobsen, who became famous for his Egg, Swan and Ant chairs. Alternatively, you may be drawn to the creations of Kai Kristiansen. Kristiansen is also renowned for his wall shelves and desk designs, too, using signature Danish materials such as teak.

If you are looking to have a space perhaps a hall or large lounge or even a terrace where you are looking to find furniture that is a real talking point then a set of four Niels Jorgen Haugesen Danish String Chairs will be a total conversation starter. A black stained ash wood frame is set alight with an electric blue wool weave seat and a recliner of black nylon strings, these chairs are a genuine collector’s piece but actually very comfortable to sit in. Or for some peaceful moments with a book, opt for an occasional Danish Peacock Chair with its beautifully sculptured back offering enclosure and hinting at just a little privacy.

Danish sofas are particularly popular at present, using minimalist mid-century style to create restrained but eye-catching furniture, typically upholstered in either tactile fabrics or warm leather tones. Find a vintage leather sofa here at Vinterior and you may find that the material is worn from years of use – yet this makes it perfect for an industrial or shabby chic setting.

Choose a desk from iconic British brands like Stag or Nathan and you will often find that Danish design features heavily in these vintage pieces, too. G Plan is another well-known British company to draw on Danish style.
