Pair of Iconic Ole Wanscher 'Senator' Armchairs by Poul Jeppesen
A grand offering from one of Denmark's preeminent designers
Ole Wanscher is one of the leading lights in mid century Scandinavian design. He was the senior professor at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts from 1955 until 1973 and has left a lasting legacy in furniture design.
These epic armchairs are aptly named the 'Senator'. We love the organic, aerodynamic armrest design and the lightness of form that makes these chairs shine from every angle. It is a timeless design that will stand out in any contemporary setting. It's time to put up your feet with a cold one; you've earned it.
