Vintage Danish 1950s Sweet Velvet Armchair with Fringing & Piped Lines
Staying true to our ethos of acquiring pieces we would love in our own home, we fell in love with this pretty, vintage armchair. Something of a departure from the classic leather midcentury seats we usually stock, this Danish piece heralds from the 1950s. The colour is hard to describe – beige does it a terrible disservice. The pale mustard / gold with a touch of green velvet is soft and plush, and in fantastic condition considering its age. With neat proportions, neutral colour and elegant, feminine lines, it would be the perfect injection of faded glamour to a dull bedroom, study or hallway with its old-fashioned charm. And it’s really comfortable too with a sprung seat cushion giving buoyancy and support.

This is an original, vintage piece that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in very good, used condition. We have given the chair a thorough vacuum but have otherwise left the upholstery alone. As you can see from our photos, the original velvet has some very minor marks and indentations to the pile from light use but overall is in very good order. The buttons are securely fixed in place. The decorative fringe at the base is also securely attached and in very good order with no strands frayed or missing. The chair frame is structurally sound and solid with no signs of repair. It was imported directly from Denmark and the style and build lead us to believe it most likely dates from the 1950s. Please browse our photos for a good sense of this chair’s great order.
