The Spanish chair by Børge Mogensen

The Spanish chair by Børge Mogensen

The Spanish chair by Børge Mogensen is one of my favourite mid-century Danish design. A black version of Mogensen’s Spanish chair was lent to us when we photographed our home in London (see the whole feature in Grazia UK here). I wish I could have kept it… It’s a beautiful, sturdy chair, extremely comfortable with a high-quality thick leather cover and wooden frame. Have you ever tried it? This month, Fredericia releases a Special Edition of the Spanish chair by Børge Mogensen in Deep Red saddle leather. It’s a beauty! Originally designed in 1958, The Spanish Chair has been manufactured by Fredericia ever since. It’s an iconic piece you will often find in corporate settings, hotels, galleries, and private residences around the globe, reflecting Mogensen’s unique angle on modernity.  What do you think of this new colour? Do you like it or do you prefer one of the other colours? What is your favourite mid- century classic chair? SHOP THE FREDERICIA CHAIR

What’s your take on neutral tones!? Kaja Møller, who lives there with her husband and two children, designed the interior herself and creating a succession of rooms in neutral tones, drawing inspiration from French and Italian interior design. In the dining area, the walls are painted in a light shade of grey which contrasts nicely with the black timber ceiling beams and the steel cabinet. I wish we could see more of this steel cabinet as it …
