Straigh From BF Denmark: OG Peter Table & Chair By Hans Wegner

og_wegner_peter_furn.jpg

Hans Wegner made Peter's Chair and Table as a present for Borge Mogenson's new kid in 1944. Mogenson loved it, and he helped put it into production at FDB, the furnituremaker where he was lead designer. . This example out of Haderslev, Denmark--right there on the fjord, you know--has an FDB stamp. And the seller is still talking smack about maybe needing some paint.

Sounds like someone needs to rescue this stuff, and quick. Sheesh.

MODERN DANISH DESIGN Peter's Chair + Table by HJ WEGNER, currently $199+95 s/h, auction ends Dec. 19 [ebay, thanks andy]
