DANISH ROSEWOOD HOOP BACK ARM CHAIR BY KJAERNULF FOR HANSEN
Model 255; Bruno Hansen stamp to underside, Denmark circa 1950s
Item # 806QCA15-2
A very finely made chair designed by Henning Kjaernulf for retail by Bruno Hansen, the frame is carved from rosewood while the thin curved seat is upholstered in black vinyl. It has a striking hoopback form reminiscent of the Wishbone chair by Hans Wegner, but with distinct Y-shapes expressed in the joint of the back with each leg. It is an inordinately elegant and attractive chair; usually crafted in teak, the chair is quite striking and elevated in this dense and chaotic rosewood. We may have a second chair still available in the shop, though it would be a good idea to contact us to verify.
Measurements: 21 1/2” W x 18 3/4” D x 29 1/8” H, 17 7/8” H to seat
Minor wear to surface, overall rich vibrant color with a very nice clean finish. Vinyl is original with minor age appropriate wear.
