Peter Hvidt (1916-1986) and Orla Mølgaard-Nielsen (1907-1993) were pioneers of Danish mid-century design and the founders of Copenhagen-based firm Hvidt & Mølgaard.
This mid-century Model 316 Chair by Peter Hvidt & Orla Mølgaard Nielsen for Søborg Møbelfabrik 1958 is back to her former glory freshly woven with Danish paper cord.
Danish Cord Furniture - Care
Some people spray a scotch guard on the Danish cord surfaces to stop stains from absorbing. If something spills on the Danish cord use a damp cloth to clean the spill as soon as possible. Vacuuming once in a while is always a good practice.
How to Clean Danish Paper Cord with Soap Flakes (Try at your own risk as Danish Cord is Paper)
1. Pour boiling water over soap flakes. Make sure all flakes are completely dissolved
2. Allow mixture to cool slightly
3. While water is warm, use a soft cloth to gently wipe the paper cord. Do not get the seat too wet
4. Allow to dry and then repeat if necessary
My Danish cord chair is breaking at the front and back edges can you fix the broken pieces?
The front and back runs of Danish cord tend to be breaking points of this type of furniture after long term use. Once these pieces of material break it is time to replace the full Danish cord surface. Contact Caning Canada to have your Danish cord chair repaired.
