Danish Vodder chair reborn after 38 years

Arne Vodder's chaiselong chair EJ 230 is being relaunched by furniture-manufacturing company Erik Jørgensen

Educated as a cabinet maker, Denmark’s Arne Vodder (1926-2009) stuck to wood for most of his career.

But in 1972, he decided to make his first furniture-frame out of metal. The work became this classic chaiselong chair from the 70s - EJ 230 manufactured by Erik Jørgensen A/S.

The chaiselong chair was in stock for about six years, until Erik Jørgensen stopped making it i 1978.

Now it has returned. To the delight of Arne Vodder’s son Michael Vodder, who supports the furniture company during the relaunching.

- My dad was very proud of that chair, and in many years it stood in his own living room in a prominent place, he says.

- When I was a child, I dreamed of having this chair in my own home. Now that wish can be granted, he says.

As originally presented, the EJ 230 chaiselong chair is smoothly padded with soft leather of a good quality.
