FRESH + FEATURED FOR 02/04/2023
| FEATURED DESIGNER: JENS RISOM |
JENS RISOM DINING SET WITH 6 CHAIRS | $5,495 This Jens Risom walnut dining set is not only complete, it features some of the Danish-American designer’s most iconic pieces. Included are a rarely seen narrow dining table that perfectly accommodates seating for six. So the set includes its original six chairs: two C 240 arm chairs and four C 242 side chairs. We restored everything and highlighted the rich wood tones with a walnut oil finish. We also reupholstered the chairs – both the seats and backs – with Designtex Hashtag fabric. Offered as a set. TABLE DIMENSIONS: 66″L x 36″W x 29-3/4″H.
JENS RISOM OTTOMAN-BENCH | $745 Adapting vintage furniture that’s well-built but not not well-configured for modern needs is both craft and art. We reimagined an oversized, laminate top Jens Risom accent table as a roomy ottoman or bench by cutting down the square top to a more manageable size. Then we added a punch of color using vintage Ikat style fabric to create an upholstered top – box-stitched and button tufted. The walnut base retains the Risom signature floating look. DIMENSIONS: 32-1/2W x 27″D x 18″H.
JENS RISOM C220 SIDE CHAIR | $645 This reimagined Jens Risom C220 side chair blends a little charm with a classic modern profile. The frame was made using solid walnut, and it’s freshly upholstered in cream fabric with an uncluttered brown leaf design. The chair might seems slight, but the cushions have spring cores that make for a more substantial feel.
JENS RISOM UPHOLSTERED WALNUT BENCH | $2,195 This restored Jens Risom Design bench is bringing sexy back to wherever you place it. It’s a 1960s design with Risom’s signature floating top profile. The base is solid walnut and fully restored. The bench top is newly upholstered – with box stitching and button tufting – in a high-quality charcoal fabric.DIMENSIONS: 48″L x 24″D x 18″H.
JENS RISOM 4-DRAWER CHEST – CUSTOM LEGS | $1,695 Tinkering with a modern master’s furniture designs is a delicate balance between making the piece functional and honoring the original aesthetic. We think we nailed it on this Jens Risom Design Group R chest that came to us without a base. The first part of the process was to restore the walnut exterior and then polish the signature Risom brass drawer pulls. Next, we collaborated with a local maker to design and craft solid walnut legs that are both strong and integrated. DIMENSIONS: 36″W x 21″D (plus 1-1/2″ drawer pull projection) x 31-1/4″H.
