Borge Mogensen Hunting Chair in Natural Leather and Oak
27.5" W x 34" D x 27" H x 9.5" Seat Height
The "Hunting Chair" is one of Børge Mogensen’s more unusual chairs which he designed in 1950 for the autumn exhibition of the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild, whose theme that year was ‘The Hunting Lodge’. The frame is made of oak, while seat and back are of butt leather with adjustable straps – a rustic and masculine combination that Mogensen developed later in other pieces such as the Spanish Chair.
The eye-catching and dynamic design with a front seat edge height of just 9.5" is typical for the era. The Hunting Chair’s rounded armrests, seat, and back that adjust to the body’s weight make it a very comfortable chair.
