An elegant classic is relaunched in leather

In 1952, architect Poul M. Volther designed the iconic Jørna “queen chair,”

created for and named after his wife. This graceful classic has been available in a host of

beautiful colors since its return to production in 2019, and this spring the options expand even further,

as FDB Møbler introduces a Jørna model with leather seat and back cushion.

Architect Poul M. Volther sat down at the drawing board in 1952 in connection with the Copenhagen Carpenters' Guild's furniture exhibition and produced a chair that would become a favorite. Mindful of his dear wife’s need for plenty of elbow room for knitting, he devised a wide-backed chair that he would end up naming after her. In March, FDB Møbler offers Danish design enthusiasts a version of this versatile armchair with seat and back cushions in leather, either black or cognac-colored, to complement the standard black or natural FSC-certified oak frame. Not only beautiful but also extremely durable and easy to maintain, the leather upholstery is just one of many well-thought-details that engage in a unique interplay with the overall design. The result is an elegant, timeless piece suited to decor of any taste.
