Year: 1957

Lean Back is an elegant lounge chair designed in 1957 by the acclaimed Danish furniture designer, Arne Hovmand-Olsen. A refined lightness of form and an almost floating expression define the design. It’s incredibly comfortable and perfect for long conversations around the coffee table or immersion in the world of books and magazines.

The solid wood armrests are organic, perfectly shaped and highly tactile with a softness that showcases the nature of the timber. What is particularly special about the design of the Lean Back lounge chair is that it looks beautiful from any angle, so it can stand freely in a room.

Choose from exclusive upholstery fabrics from the likes of Kvadrat in carefully selected shades from the Warm Nordic universe, or the highest quality leather. The frame of the Lean Back chair is available in several exclusive types of wood.

Designed by Arne Hovmand-Olsen

Arne Hovmand-Olsen had the world in mind when he became one of Denmark’s renowned furniture designers. The son of a farmer and an aesthete by nature, he started as an apprentice cabinetmaker, before studying furniture design and pursuing his passion for furniture design.

In 1944, Arne Hovmand-Olsen opened his own design practice, where he united the details of classic craftsmanship with innovative, modern design. He was a pioneer, not only in the field of architecture, but also in the field of exporting designer furniture to accommodate the large interest abroad.

In consultation with Arne Hovmand-Olsen’s family, Warm Nordic is upholding the legacy of this great furniture designer and will regularly launch more House of Arne Hovmand-Olsen classics.
