Vintage Ole Wanscher Highback Senator Chair & Stool

Sold As A Set



The epitome of a mid-century modern lounge chair, this vintage Senator Easy Chair and matching stool was designed by Ole Wanscher and manufactured by France & Søn, circa 1960s. A classic lounge set that will stand the test of time, this set balances a slim frame of warm teak wood with wide plush cushioning. The minimal styling of this chair is an example of Wanscher's design aesthetic and ethos on the functionality of his pieces.

Ole Wanscher was a leading figure in Denmark's mid-century modern movement. He came to shape Scandinavian modern furniture with a refined and reliable aesthetic. Influenced heavily by his world travels, Wanscher gained inspiration from English, Asian, Egyptian and traditional Shaker furniture, and he incorporated elements from these styles into his revered mid-century designs. Many of his pieces are staples in mid-century modern themed homes.
