Danish designer Johannes Andersen was a cabinetmaker and set up his own workshop designing furniture.
Andersen’s Allegra Bar Stool (1961; Bridget Bar Stool in bar and counter heights)’s appeal lies in its honesty of design. The wood shines in its simple, almost charmingly rustic, design; that coupled with the comfortable leather seat make it an easy, chic fit for all homes and entertainment areas.
The stool shown above is a replica.
Illustrious Norwegian interior designer Fredrik Kayser’s Model 711 (1960; Emerson Sofa in various armchair or seater options) stands out amongst his body of award-winning work and has retained its light, timeless looks over the years, fitting in both traditional and contemporary decors.
Charles and Ray Eames' Molded Plastic Chairs (1948-1950) were the first plastic chairs to be industrially manufactured, including the Desmond Chair, the Rada Armchair and the Maja Rocking Chair with its uncovered, cup-like seats and iconic wood and wire rocker bases.
The Panton Chair (1957-1967; S Chair) by experimental Danish designer Verner Panton is part of the Danish Culture Canon and has withstood the vicissitudes of popularity over time, in part thanks to supermodel Kate Moss who posed nude on it on the cover of British Vogue.
