Tall Chest of Drawers by Frits Henningsen

FRITS HENNINGSEN
Denmark
1940s
Mahogany
49 1/4″ high x 28 1/2″ wide x 19 1/2″ deep

A tall chest of six drawers in graduated sizes of stunningly figured, book-matched veneer. Frits Henningsen was a designer but as importantly a cabinet maker. Quality and timelessness were the raison d’etre of his studio. Typical of Henningsen, there is very little ornamentation on this gorgeous chest–not even drawer pulls. His design celebrates the draped appearance in the grain of the mahogany. With two original keys.
