The Republic of Fritz Hansen just released a special edition of the Arne Jacobsen Oxford Chair that is now available at Danish Design Store!
Original professor chairs at Oxford
Fifty years ago Jacobsen designed the original Oxford Chair for the professors at St. Catherine’s College in Oxford, UK. The high back version was the original “professor’s chair,” which quickly evolved into Fritz Hansen’s iconic Oxford Series.
The 50th Anniversary Oxford Chair brings back the original wood veneer with upholstered panels on the front sections and brushed aluminum arms. However, Fritz Hansen has unveiled three updated colors from Kvadrat: Orange, Light Blue, and Petrol.
The chair is available in two models:
- FH 3273 Model – fixed seat height and flat toes: $3,374
- FH 3293 Model – adjustable seat height, tilt and castors: $3,894
A simple ergonomic design makes the Oxford Chair ideal for use as an everyday office chair or anywhere in the house you want a bit of class.

The Fritz Hansen PK8 Chair is a relatively new addition to the Fritz Hansen collection. For many years, The PK8™ existed only as a prototype in the home of Hanne Kjærholm, the wife of Poul Kjærholm. The PK8 was put into production in close collaboration with Hanne Kjærholm and introduced to the public in connection with the 2007 exhibition about Poul Kjærholm, “The furniture architect”, at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, north of Copenhagen.

We’re not sure how we’ve gone months of Monday Morsels without calling out the Jacobsen Ant Chair. These simple and stylish chairs first appeared in the canteen of Danish pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk in 1952. The Jacobsen Ant Chair (“Myren” in Danish) has a fitting name: the Ant Chair’s silhouette resembles an ant with its head raised.
Here we feature the four-leg version of the Jacobsen Ant Chair. All images courtesy: Republic of Fritz Hansen.
We took last week off because of our Autumn Sale … so now we’re back on track with our Monday Morsels. This week: the PK61 Table by the Republic of Fritz Hansen.
@RubenAugusto requested this elegant table on Twitter, so follow Danish Design Store to request next week’s: @danishdesign1.

Since the Jacobsen Series 7 Chair is the Republic of Fritz Hansen’s most popular chair, it comes as no surprise that more than a few videos that have popped up on the internets.
Our favorite is the uber-cheesy love song devoted to the Series 7.

If you’ve purchased a leather Jacobsen Egg Chair, PK22 or leather Swan Chair, you want your investment to last.
The Republic of Fritz Hansen came up with some simple steps to make sure your leather chair or sofa will live a long (and comfortable) life. While these tips were created by Fritz Hansen, they apply to any high quality leather such as the Mogensen Hunting Chair or the leather Wegner Wing Chair.
Leather Care Tips:
- Do not place next to strong heat sources such as radiators or fireplaces
- Try to maintain a consistent level of humidity; avoid extremes
- Keep out of direct sunlight
- Do not apply chemicals, sulphonated washing and cleaning detergents or leather polish/oil
Cleaning All Leather Except Suede:
- Wipe frequently with a clean, dry, cloth
- Vacuum regularly with a soft brush attachment
- For spills/stains, avoid scrubbing with abrasives as it will damage the leather; try to dab as quickly as possible
- To treat stains or deeply clean the leather:
- In a large bowl, combine 1L or 1qt of distilled water with 3 large spoonfuls of natural soap flakes
- Whip until it foams
- Gently apply only the foam to leather in a circular motion – do not let soap soak
- Quickly wipe off and buff with a clean, dry cloth

We stumbled across this original painting of a blue Jacobsen Egg Chair on Art and Home by Jon Peters. Cool to see art depicting art:
