Just in: Pair of Hans Wegner twin beds with matching side tables

A consignor literally just stopped by the LAMA showroom with these two Hans J. Wegner twin beds with matching side tables designed for Getama. The condition of these pieces is quite spectacular and we were also happy to see original receipts, instructions on how to assemble, and even a brochure on how to care for your Danish wooden furniture.

We haven’t even had time to assemble the beds yet because we were so excited to get them on the blog! The four feet on the beds support the bed frames to raise the them off the ground, and the side tables attach to the bed frames so they look as if they are floating.

The original receipt is dated 11-3-68 and the total cost for
the two beds and two side tables in 1968: $270.90.

Original receipts, assembly instructions, and brochure on how to care for Danish furniture will be included with this lot to be offered in the March 6, 2011 Modern Art & Design Auction.
