Six Frits Henningsen Dining Chairs with Original Leather Seats

Frits Henningsen was both a designer and a cabinet-maker. He cared deeply about quality, and was uncompromising in his execution. He considered every detail, and as a result his furniture is both built to last and aesthetically timeless.
Six slender mahogany side chairs in an extremely graceful design we haven’t seen before. The frame is simple but very subtly carved, with the ornamental gesture of an elegant lozenge shape carved into the stile to echo the shape of the top rail. The original Nigerian goatskin seats have a wonderful color and patina. Impressed with Frits Henningsen’s studio numbers.
