Dining Chairs Model 203 By Arne Vodder for France & Son Denmark
25" W x 18" D x 33" H x 17" Seat Height
Designed by Arne Vodder, this rare and sophisticated set of model 203 dining chairs are made of teak. The elegantly curved seats and the hinged brass back support that moves as you lean back offers optimal seating comfort. For additional comfort, two of the four chairs have sculpted armrests.
Arne Vodder trained as a cabinetmaker and architect. He studied under Finn Juhl at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. Vodder is best known for his furniture designs, which tended to be simple pieces composed of natural materials such as rosewood and teak, often inspired by the natural forms, and occasionally accented with colorful panels. His work was well received throughout his lifetime. Between the 1950s and ’70s, Vodder’s furniture designs were used by President Jimmy Carter in the White House and President Anwar Sadat in Cairo.
