Ask a Dane to think of a rocking chair, and she will probably name this one. J16 is the undisputed classic among the many rockers designed by renowned Danish designer Hans J. Wegner over the years.
The rocking chair was introduced by FDB Møbler in 1944 and has been in production ever since. In his chair design, Wegner stressed the importance of freedom of movement and ergonomics – as epitomized by the rocking chair. It is a much-cherished setting for reading, knitting and even nursing babies.
This chair, in beech, was made on 8/8/1967 and it has been well-loved over the years. It is sturdy and comfortable with noticeable wear including light discoloration to the original seat, numerous dings and areas of finish wear. There is a chip at the right side arm/back joint as shown. Price reflects this. See photos. Fully signed as shown with brand and label.
