Simultaneously reassuringly rustic and effortlessly stylish, the BM1106 Huntsman Chair epitomises Borge Mogensen's ability to transform humble natural materials into interior design classics. Endlessly refined by the talented artisans at Carl Hansen & Son, this updated design features contemporary touches that enhance your interior spaces.
Rooted in 19th-century hunting and campaigning furniture, the design of the Huntsman Chair features iconic buckled straps that tension both the seat and backrest, allowing you to adjust the chair to suit your needs. Metal brackets allow the backrest to pivot, moving with your body to provide maximum comfort, whatever position you choose to sit in.
Over time, the leather and wood will acquire a rich patina, taking on the character of your space and becoming an enduring part of your home. Mogensen's genius lies in his ability to create these authentic and timeless pieces, encapsulating both past and present in a single object.
