Davenport and Wegner Danish chairs

Yet more Danish design to restore! The first of five Hans Wegner chairs has arrived today for a new seat, this time the famous "wishbone" design, which made us wonder just how many "Scandanavians" have passed through the workshop in the last couple of months. The answer was suprisingly 30 - not counting the various tables and a sideboard. We still get a great kick out of restoring these incredibly useable works of art, thank goodness they are being fully appreciated again.

The Davenport restoration still plods along. Most of the veneer patching is now done, shouldn't be too long before it can finally be put back together again.
