Danish furniture style and design differs from the traditional Danish Modern furniture commonly associated with the Kaare Klint “church” chair, Poul Henningsen “artichoke” pendants or the Jacobsen “Egg” occasional chair. Curious Grace offers a selective take on Danish Modern and Danish style furniture design.

Without attempting to describe the contemporary design of this furniture range it would be fair to say that Sean Dix, a resident of the Hong Kong International design hub, has captured at least two essences: modern danish furniture design, and contemporary industrial. Powder-coated metal in white or black frame timber in either American white oak, or American black walnut. Dining tables, dining chairs, and coffee tables comprise the Copine furniture range.

We believe that design tells a story about the hands that crafted it, and good design is created by master storytellers. Modern Danish furniture has become a commonly sought after design style thanks to key players and design innovators, seeing traditional pieces now become staples in the modern home.
The simple, clean aesthetic of Danish furniture is uncomplicated by design. With sharp lines and a neutral colour palette, it’s made to be highly functional and elegantly modest. It is for these reasons that its kind has withstood the test of time and continues to evolve today.
Modern Danish design is everywhere. Architecture, furniture and even technology are embracing the geometric shapes and neutral tones that are hallmarks of the style. It all began in the 1920s when Danish architects and designers began to question the heavily ornamental style of furniture that was popular at the time.
The industrial age was well underway, and a growing middle class needed sensible furniture to fill their homes. Students at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts caught on to the growing trend and began designing in much simpler shades.
The trend continued to spread until Danish designer and cabinet-maker A.J. Iverson began a yearly exhibition of furniture in Copenhagen which centred around the growing aesthetic. This annual event ran from 1925 to 1967 and gave students and established designers a common ground for innovation. This exposition had a great influence on how the style evolved.
At Curious Grace we’re always looking for something new and interesting. That’s why we’re proud to offer furniture from some of today’s top modern designers. These designers, and others like them, have continued on in the tradition of innovation that is the true signature of the modern aesthetic.
This fresh take on modernism features the same straight lines that create sharp angles, but the look is softened by using more natural wood with less contrast in single pieces. This gives a rustic touch to the style and reflects a more environmentally-conscious awareness that has arisen in today’s post-industrial world.
The focus for modern furniture is based around minimalism, but that doesn’t mean it sacrifices either comfort or style. In fact, modern design is also known for creating a simple form that is ultimately functional. Chairs and sofas are ergonomically designed to provide the right support. Dressers and end tables may not take up much space, but they will provide ample storage. Modern design means crafting something that is highly functional to provide ultimate comfort and convenience.
Of course, minimalism doesn’t fail to account for aesthetic either. Modern Danish modern plays with deep contrasts using colours and lines. Truly extraordinary furniture is made from these simple elements. Natural wood grains are commonly featured in this style and Danish-inspired modernism is known for this in particular.
