Frits Henningsen - uncompromising design

tables, danish, mahoganyLaurence FoxComment

Denmark 1889 - 1965

Known both as owner of a furniture-making workshop in Copenhagen and as designer of the workshops products, Henningsen´s work was greatly respected for its very high standards of craftsmanship. Henningsen was an active member of the Cabinetmakers Guild from 1927 on. Every piece with the Henningsen imprimatur is entirely hand-made, with expensive and exotic woods, using exclusively the labor-intensive, traditional methods he inherited from the nineteenth century. www.deconet.com

For Evergreen Antiques the classic sophisticated lines of this table combined with the superb cabinetmaking quality epitomize the work of Henningsen.

This table is made in rich mahogany with brass shoes and seems to be almost emerging from the floor. The tripod base is set in a way that makes the pedestal and legs have both substance and lightness.

So much of his work has the balance we strive to find – a piece that can hold its own in almost any interior.

We currently have two of these tables in inventory.
