Hunting Table by Børge Mogensen

Danish designer Børge Mogensen.

Carl Hansen & Son has added Børge Mogensen (1914-1972) to its portfolio of major Danish designers with his classic Hunting Table.

Originally designed in 1950 for an exhibition with a hunting cabin theme, the table consists of two trestles with angled legs and a slim veneer tabletop with rounded corners and edges in solid wood. Signature mortise and tenon joints on the legs are completed with wedges in contrasting wood, and the table’s stability is maximized by two diagonal brace bars mounted between the frame and tabletop.

The table comes in oak, walnut, and a combination of these wood types with various finishes. In my opinion, it’s pretty darn gorgeous.
