The Spanish Dining Chair is a testament to the application of honest materials. Crafted from the finest selection of oak and flawless saddle leather, the chair is available with or without armrests, and with multiple finishes from light to darker shades, depending on the atmosphere you want to create.
It’s ironic that something called The Spanish Chair would become synonymous with Danish design. However, the origin of its name and its distinctive aesthetic render the chair worthy of its reputation.
Børge Mogensen drew much of his inspiration from traditional chairs of other cultures, such as English Windsor chairs and the Shaker movement in America. In Spain, a traditional way of making furniture involved the use of sturdy leather to construct the seat as part of a wooden structure – hence the name of what went on to become one of Mogensen's most celebrated designs.
