Arne Hovmand-Olsen had the world in mind, both before and after the 1950s, when he became one of Denmark’s renowned furniture designers. The son of a farmer and an aesthete by nature, he started as an apprentice cabinetmaker, before studying furniture design and pursuing his passion for visual composition and furniture design.
In 1944, Arne Hovmand-Olsen opened his own design practice, where he united the details of classic craftsmanship with innovative, modern design. He was a pioneer, not only in the field of architecture, but also in the field of exporting designer furniture to accommodate the large interest abroad. In consultation with Arne Hovmand-Olsen’s family, Warm Nordic is upholding the legacy of this great furniture designer and will regularly launch more House of Arne Hovmand-Olsen classics.
Lean Back is an elegant, reclining lounge chair in 1950s design. Despite the lightness and an almost floating expression, the lounge chair is incredibly comfortable to sit in, perfect for long conversations around the coffee table or immersion in the world of books and magazines. The solid wood armrests are so elegantly designed that their soft sway could almost be mistaken for leather.
A simple, timeless designer table created in the 1950s. Evermore is a classic beauty that transports the craftsmanship and aesthetics of Danish modernism into the contemporary dining room or sociable kitchen. The lines of the design are typical of the era and characteristic of Arne Hovmand-Olsen, who let the beautiful wood play the leading role. Evermore is a perfect complement to the Noble Chair by the same designer, but also looks great with other designer chairs with classic lines.
