Teak Horsnæs chair by S. A. Andersen, Denmark

This teak chair, produced by the Horsnæs furniture company in Denmark and (I think) designed by S. A. Andersen, came to me in pieces.

The frame and springs were in good shape—but that upholstery fabric!  It was dirty and worn.


Redone in Knoll Felt, a heavy felted wool flannel, in the “Apple” colorway.



The original rubber webbing had been replaced with heavy nylon strapping attached with screws.


I replaced it with woven elastic webbing.


The elastic webbing forms a taut base for the seat cushion but with just the right amount of give.


The smooth texture of the fabric goes beautifully with the graceful lines of the chair while the soft apple green contrasts strikingly with the rich color of the teak.


This chair design is one of my favorites.  So elegant!
