Poul Kjaerholm's Entire Collection Just Re-Released!

The Danes do it best . . . Danish designer Poul Kjaerholm's original, fine midcentury modern furniture is expensive and hard to find. That's one reason why celebrated Danish furniture manufacturer Fritz Hansen (founded in 1872) acquired the rights to the entire Poul Kjaerholm collection, pieces from which are already starting to arrive at Scott+Cooner in Dallas. So far, it's the only place you can get the collection in Texas, if not the southwest. 

This is exciting news for anyone interested in great midcentury or Danish design (most of these pieces were designed in the late 1950s and mid-1960s). Kjaerholm's simple and sophisticated aesthetic is unsurpassed—he pushed the limits of refinement with natural materials such as marble, wood, leather and canvas. Even though this is a re-release, the quality is going to be there, since Fritz Hansen is known for meticulous craftsmanship and using the best materials. This is by no means the entire collection, but these are some of my favorite pieces and room shots:
