ARNE JACOBSEN EGG CHAIR + OTTOMAN | INQUIRE Arne Jacobsen left an indelible mark on modern design, from architecture and interiors to furniture.

It was a 1958 commission for the Royal SAS Hotel in Copenhagen and become a mid-century modern icon. We’re offering an authentic and iconic Egg Chair and matching ottoman made in Denmark by Fritz Hansen on behalf of a noted Minneapolis artist who has owned it since the early 1970s. It is in superb condition structurally and cosmetically, and was reupholstered by one of the region’s premier upholstery pros. He used Kvadrat Hallingdal 65 fabric, created by Nanna Ditzel.

EAMES FOLDING WOOD SCREEN (FWS) | $2,495 Designed and developed in 1946 by Charles and Ray Eames, this clever room divider might be just right for current times. We all need a little privacy, but it’s nice to share space with the right people, too. The Folding Wood Screen (FWS) adds flexibility and portability, with six undulating panels that unfold from a slim vertical to a five-foot divider. The panels are made using ash veneer on the front and back over layers of maple. Each panel is connected with a polypropylene mesh fabric, allowing flexible positioning of the panels. The FWS was in production from 1946 to 1955, retired and then reintroduced by Herman Miller in 1994. This piece is from that second generation of production. OPEN DIMENSIONS: 60″L x 2-1/4″D x 68″H, and 10″W in the folded position.
CONANT BALL NORSEMATES ROOM DIVIDER | $2,695 This free-standing room divider is an extraordinary combination; it’s both a work of art and a practical piece of furniture. From the Conant Ball Furniture Company Norsemates collection in the late 1950s to early 1960s, it is made of solid birch. Although its primary purpose is to partition larger spaces, it does so with a certain airiness: open dowels in the back and a raised bench-style base. We’ve imagined a number of uses for it. Our favorite is a stereo bench with one side of the base for components and the other for LPs. In exceptional condition. DIMENSIONS: 52″W x 18-3/4″D (15″ bench depth) x 62-3/8″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 are 36″W x 21″D (plus 1-1/2″ drawer pull projection) x 31-1/4″H.

1960s LANE PERCEPTION TWIN BED | $295 The twin (or single) bed is scarce today, but it was the dominant frame size of the post-World War II era and into the 1960s.

It features the signature woven walnut accent, heavily figured walnut expanse and American ash surround. This frame is freshly restored and just needs a readily available steel foundation to make it perfect for the cabin, in a kid’s room or as a daybed.
