Faaborg Chair

Kaare Klint, 1914


Kaare Klint, widely known as the father of modern Danish design, created the elegant and timeless Faaborg Chair in 1914. Faaborg carries a robust history in its design origins, originally created to assist museum visitors with light and portable seating during their visit to the Faaborg Museum in Denmark. The initial inception of this comfortable armchair featured a brilliantly interwoven French cane seat, back, and sides, so as to not obstruct the view of the gallery's intricate mosaic floor. Today, this design classic is available in its original all-cane version in three wood species, as well as a new style introduced in 1964 with a padded upholstered seat.
