The Spanish Chair
In 1958, Børge Mogensen used solid wood and saddle leather to create the Spanish Chair for Fredericia. On a journey through Spain, Mogensen had noticed a traditional type of chair with wide armrests, common in areas influenced by ancient Islamic culture. The broad armrests serve as a practical place to place a glass, allowing the user to dispense with occasional tables or other furniture from the surrounding area.

In 1950, the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild’s exhibition presented furniture under the theme ”A Hunting Lodge”, in which Børge Mogensen had, for the first time, designed furniture using a solid wood framework with saddle leather forming the seat and back. This methodology was inspired from medieval Spanish furniture construction, something that Mogensen would return to time and time again.
