Description

Danish furniture maker France and Son collaborated with some of the leading Scandinavian architects and designers to create progressive high end furniture. This collaboration with Danish designer Inger Klingenberg (1932-1997) is no exception. Klingenberg was educated at the school of interior design in Copenhagen before establishing her own design firm in 1958. Her husband was the American designer Ross Littel, an employee of Charles Eames.

It's almost a shame to hide these gorgeous Danish dining chairs beneath a table. Luminous teak grain is shown off beautifully with the dramatic, curved slat backrest and the simple linear proportions reminiscent of Japanese architecture. Elegant form and clean lines offer what we think is definitely a supportive, comfortable experience.

NOTE:
