The FDB Møbler J81 Armchair is the charming armchair counterpart of the iconic J80 dining chair, both designed by the Danish visionary Jørgen Bækmark in 1962. Crafted with a spindle backrest and sturdy arms, this wooden dining armchair exemplifies Danish craftsmanship at its finest. Proudly manufactured in Denmark from FSC certified solid beech, it is available in several exquisite colour finishes, offering a choice of either black or natural wicker seats.

Designed in 1963 by Jørgen Bækmark, the J81 armchair boasts a high backrest gently contoured to provide an exceptionally comfortable seating experience. Its paper cord seat is expertly woven around a frame made from oak or beech. This masterpiece is a testament to timeless Danish design that seamlessly marries aesthetic beauty with functional elegance.

In the early 1940s, a group of pioneering furniture architects embarked on a mission to create beautiful, functional furniture that was accessible to all, regardless of their economic standing. The vision behind FDB Møbler was to foster close family values and democratic principles, ensuring that good furniture design and exceptional quality were not reserved exclusively for the affluent. Today, 75 years later, these classic designs, originally conceptualised by luminaries such as Børge Mogensen and Poul M. Volther, remain true to these founding principles.

The J81 armchair by FDB Møbler captures the essence of classic Danish design. With its FSC-certified solid wood frame, defined by graceful lines and an airy appearance, this chair effortlessly complements a variety of interior styles. The beautiful handwoven paper string seat exudes a 50s-inspired charm, while the comfortable armrests are designed for long, leisurely dinners around the dining table. Choose from a range of captivating colours and materials to create a look that suits your personal style and preferences.
