SMALL CHEST OF DRAWERS
BY JACOB KJAER Sold
Jacob Kjær (1896–1957) was an important Danish furniture designer and cabinetmaker. Kjær was trained as a cabinetmaker in the workshop of his father and received further training in Berlin and Paris in the twenties.
Characterized by simplicity, his designs drew on the finest materials which, unusually for his day, he crafted himself.
He did much to enhance the reputation of the Danish furniture industry as president of the Cabinetmakers Guild from 1952 to 1957 and of the Arts and Crafts Committee for Exports from 1944 to 1957.
Inspired by classical English Style, his clean, graceful designs are modern in interpretation, like this wonderful chest of drawers in rosewood, which was designed and produced in the 40s/50s.
