A set of 6 Rosewood Model 31 Dining chairs.

The A-Frame Model 31 is one of the most well-known chairs of the Danish design invasion that swept across Europe and the Americas during the 50's and 60's.

Designed by Kai Kristiansen in 1956 for Schou-Andersens Møbelfabrik (Furniture Manufacturing), this design is a true classic with its curved backrest, opposed angular frame, clean lines; it is also very comfortable!

Chairs have been revived in our workshop: the teak frames have been, knocked apart, re-glued. Stripped and the French polished by hand with a final wax to bring out the rich colour and patination of the wood. Finally we have then stripped off and newly upholstered the seats in new period fabric.

Whilst these chairs are in great condition, they are vintage, and as such have patination commensurate with their age.

Kai Kristiansen is often referred to as the father of modern Danish furniture design. See details to learn more.

Product Details:

Designer - Kai Kristiansen was born in Denmark in 1929. He trained at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and on finishing his apprenticeship as a furniture maker in 1948, became a cabinetmaker for Kaare Klint. Klint developed a progressive and humanistic approach to design and is often referred to as the father of modern Danish furniture design.

Emulating his mentor, Kristiansen opened his own design shop in 1955 and worked with various manufacturers to create beautifully crafted, innovative, human-centred furniture “defined by clean lines and a perfect balance of form and function.”
