Early mixed wood version of Arne Vodder's lounge chair for Bovirke, made by France and Son in the 1950s. It was sold as Model 161 by F&S. Featuring a Royal Danish Beech frame with Walnut arms attached by wedged tenons joints, this model has two seating positions, one more reclined for relaxing and one more upright. The walnut is significant as it predates Teak being used extensively- allowed by the technological advancement of cutting technology pioneered by Charles France of France and Daverkosen. Excellent joinery from Bovirke and the contrasting woods complement each other beautifully. See final photo for Bovirke advert featuring the chair.
28 1/4" wide x 29" deep x 26 1/2" high (reclined position)
