Two matching Kurt Ostervig chairs for restoring and re upholstering to order.
Kurt Ostervig is one of 12-15 Danish designers from the 50s and 60s on the step down from Wegner, Juhl and Jacobsen. We think that at his best, and this is one of his best, his designs are superb and still offer great value . Compare with Wegner’s ” Mama Bear ” chair , and its no less smart for a fraction of the price. We’ve found one in the USA priced at $5500 re-upholstered in an expensive cream wool.
We bought these 2 chairs separately. Its really rare to find original pairs particularly in Denmark where people didn’t usually buy sets in the 50s and 60s. One we’ve had for a while, the other was recently sourced in Denmark.
The legs and arm pieces are teak on these 2, whereas some including the 1 we found in the USA have rosewood arms. The design is from 1958, and the manufacturer was a small quality company who seemed to have specialised in upholstered furniture.
We don’t often choose to fully re-upholster chairs as we prefer customers to make their own choice of colour. We did have another of these chairs which came in very worn original 2 tone upholstery, which we repeated when upholstering, and this was sold in late 2015 .
WE NOW HAVE 2 OF THESE BEAUTIFUL CHAIRS IN STOCK WAITING FOR YOUR CHOICE OF FABRIC , AS WELL AS A LOWER SOFA , AND A LOW ROSEWOOD VERSION .
