FDB Møbler | Dining chairs | Poul M. Volther

Danish FDB Møbler is strongly rooted in the icons of Danish furniture design. FDB, the Danish Consumers’ Co-operative Society, was founded in 1940 to produce functionalist and democratic design for ordinary people – thanks to the new industrial production, FDB could manufacture high-quality furniture at low prices. During the next decades, designers such as Børge Mogensen and Poul M. Volther created numerous timeless pieces of Danish furniture design. FDB closed its factory in 1980, but in 2013 the Danish Coop launched FDB Møbler and started re-releasing some of the most beloved products of the mid-century Danish design. In addition to the classics, FDB Møbler creates new furniture inspired by the old collections.

Dining chairs from Scandinavia and beyond

Dining chairs are among the most important chairs in your house. Dining room chairs invite the family to gather together during breakfasts, dinners and suppers, and in most homes, dining chairs are in active use also outside the meals. The design of a dining table chair requires exceptional durability, comfortability and adaptability, and that's a good reason to invest in high-quality, timeless design. Well-designed dining chairs provide a straight yet comfortable seating posture, and their dimensions have been designed to fit people of various ages and sizes. In public spaces, for example in restaurant use, stackability of the chair is a definite plus – a pile of stacked chairs is easy to store in a small space.

The best dining chairs are a balanced combination of functional qualities and intriguing aesthetics – they have been designed to stand the test of time, both with their structure and appearance. The most common materials of Scandinavian dining chairs include wood, metal, plastic, rattan and different combinations of these. The seat might be upholstered in fabric, leather or velvet, or woven from linen webbing. Colourful dining chairs are a great way to spice up the decor of the dining area or neutral-toned dining table, and, respectively, strong colours of the interior can be balanced with black, white or grey dining chairs. Feel free to use your imagination – you can mix together chairs in different tones, or why not even several types of chairs.
