This is completed in a beautiful way by the wool upholstery, in a shade of green that is specific for the Mid-Century furniture.

At Helge River in Diö, in the heart of the old forests of Småland, lies Sweden's oldest furniture factory (founded in 1861). Its inner sanctum, beech and ash are tamed into time- less furniture by skilled craftsmen who know which way the wood likes to bend. Stretching and flexing, easing and teasing, until the steaming hot wood finds its form. And the wood will not be rushed. The transformation from log into chair takes days, sometimes even weeks. The technique has been used by boat and fence builders since ancient times but was refined in the mid 1800's by Thonet into the iconic chair, worn my millions of seats in the cafés of Europe. The shape is determined by the best and the brightest of their time. Back then their names were Peter Celsing, Yngve Ekström, Sigurd Lewerentz and Carl Malmsten. Now they are Jonas Bohlin, Front, Lisa Hilland and Mats Theselius.
Coffee table made in Norway, late 60s. The counter-top is made of veneered wood; the legs are made of stainless steel with hard plastic clogs. The counter-top edges are cut inwards giving this piece a light non-intrusive look. The legs are not plain, but made of three thin rods. The minimalist shape, the dialogue between wood and stainless steel, the curved edges, the line of the counter-top, all of this make this table a leading exponent of Scandinavian Modern style. The piece is in good vintage condition (see photos).
Set of 3 Norwegian Hov Dokka chairs (the factory specializes in office furniture and sitting). The structure and the armrests, made of curved beech, give a natural, organic and pleasant shape.

This particular decanter, known as "the drunk" (because of its bent posture) is a variation of the famous Kluk-Kluk decanter which takes its name from the sound made by the liquid when poured, sound amplified by the shape of this bottle. Both the Drunken Kluk-Kluk and the classic Kluk-Kluk are very popular in Denmark and were produced by Holmegaard in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. The first Kluk-Kluk designed by Jacob Bang dates from 1928 but the designer kept coming back to this. This piece presented above is designed in the second half of the 1950s.
Spectacular and rare "Unika" series vase, signed by Per Lütken and produced at Holmegaard. Dated 1946, this crystal cut piece is made by sandblasting. This technique allowed that stylish vertical game of slim lines that defines this vase. Both the production date and the look put this piece between the Art Deco and Mid-Century aesthetics, being one of those objects that points the break with the past and the affirmation of a new style. The piece is not signed but - attention! - none of the the "Unika" vases were signed and - in this particular case - the lack of a signature is an additional guarantee of the authenticity of the piece.
