What is Danish style furniture?

Danish style furniture is closely related to Scandinavian and mid-century modern design. It encompasses a minimalist aesthetic that mirrors the proportions of the human body. The movement flourished from the 1940s through to the 1960s, with Danish furniture designers such as Hans Wegner and Arne Jacobsen crafting unique designs still adored across the globe today. 

What type of wood is Danish modern furniture?

From stools and coffee tables to sideboards and full living room suites, mid-century Danish modern furniture typically features natural materials – most prominently, wood. 


Many Danish style furniture designs use oak, mahogany, pine, and teak to achieve a light, airy, sophisticated finish without becoming stark or clinical. 

What is the Danish Modern Movement?

The Danish Modern Movement was born out of the former Bauhaus modernist movement, a graphic aesthetic that was popular across Europe in the early 20th Century. 


Danish furniture designers drew inspiration from Bauhaus designs and philosophies. Their goal was to create streamlined furniture that not only looked stunning but was also practical and durable. 


Danish designs are similar to other, potentially more well-known furniture styles, including mid-century modern
