Whatever Happened to Danish Modern?

From my old 1965 Spiegel Catalog comes this ad for Danish Modern furniture.  We had two of the chairs - no ottoman - and I thought they were about as comfy to sit in as a chair can be.  Ours had melon colored cushions.  I used to go to a beauty shop here in town and their chairs were Danish Modern, also.  There'something about the way the seat and back slants that make them nice to sit in.  I found some things in the catalog that seem to be missing now and I will post them at a later date.  There are lots and lots of things missing in the catalog that we have now - that's for sure!  (Click to enlarge)

  1. I don't know about Danish Modern, but we still have the wood frame couch that used to belong to my Grandparents. It's used regularly in our garage/theater room :) We've very rarely bought furniture of our own - most of our stuff is hand-me-downs.
