The ‘Hussar’ easy chair
This chair was designed for The Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Exhibition in 1935 and made by A.J. Iversen, one of Copenhagen’s finest cabinetmakers at the time, and is considered the precursor to the ‘Tired Man’. The distinctive, voluminous, yet sculpturally elegant chair – whose name refers to a cavalryman, distinguished by their dashing attires – was exclusively made by A.J. Iversen in a limited number, making it a rare occasion to come across. The soft, curved outline provides a welcoming appearance, perfectly suitable for a comfortable rest.
