Teak & leather armchair by Gustav Thams for Vejen Polstermobelfabrik, 1960s, DK
A beautiful teak and leather armchair designed by Gustav Thams for Vejen Polstermobelfabrik. The armchair was designed and produced in the 1960s in Denmark. The natural leather yellow cushions are elaborately sewn in a wedge shape and fit perfectly to the frame thanks to the hooks on the backrest. The frame is made of solid teak with an oiled surface. The armrests are rounded (in the characteristic organic look of the Scandinavian Modern). The armchair is in good vintage condition and shows just minor traces of use (see photos). The original label is well preserved.

Sold ItemsPair of Swedish Gemla Mobler chairs. The structure and the armrests - made of curved wood - give a natural, organic and pleasant shape. This is completed in a beautiful way by the wool upholstery, in a shade of green that is specific for the Mid-Century furniture. This chairs can fit any nice interior, having the ability to create a warm atmosphere in the room. The chairs are in very good shape with only few age-related traces. 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.
Furniture, Special Discounts, TablesCoffee 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 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.
