Pair Mid-Century Modern Grete Jalk France Daverkosen Danish Lounge Chairs

Out of stock


Danish made, mid-century modern, beech wood armchairs by Grete Jalk for John Stuart / France Daverkosen. Jalk’s classic chair designs have become the standard for Danish mid-century modern armchairs. These two are particularly special. Loop coil support bands are unique to Danish chairs. Here, Grete Jalk uses them as part of the design as they work to support the back cushion. Using the coil bands on the back lends greater pliability to the back. This pliability allows the cushion to flex with the occupant. This unique feature improves comfort. Aside from the design, the chairs also have an interesting history. You’ll se both “FD Denmark” France Daverkosen AND John Stuart of New York marks on the chair. The chairs were made in Denmark by France Daverkosen and licensed to John Stuart for the American market.

The original beech wood frames are tight and in excellent vintage condition with only very minor imperfections near the feet. Professionally detailed top to bottom. Two support straps have been replaced. Straps are still very tight, but a few have small cosmetic separations in the plastic coating. The newer upholstery and button tufting looks great with no visible imperfections. The fabric has been professionally steam cleaned. The cushions are very heavy and appear to have internal springs.
