Rare set of Mid Century Modern Jens Risom Sculpted Walnut Armchairs in superb vintage condition with original wool upholstery.
Quality that lasts! Strong, comfortable and sturdy. Great as boardroom chairs. Due to their compact size, they would be great for smaller living or family room where full-size lounge chairs would be too large or at the end of the dining table; or in the bedroom.
We cleaned and polished the frames and can help to reupholster the chairs in your choice of fabric (yours or ours). Original navy wool upholstery is clean except 2 small spots on the back support of one chair.
Risom left Denmark for the United States in 1938 and, for two years, served as Director of Interior Design at the studio of Dan Cooper, Inc. in New York before starting a freelance career specializing in furniture and textiles. It was during this time that he met Hans Knoll. The pair collaborated on an exhibition for the New York World’s Fair. Knoll asked Risom, who had been searching for a promoter and manufacturer, to help him design interiors for clients around New York.
