Design and Construction

The 3236 Chair designed by Børge Mogensen and manufactured by Fredericia Furniture is a premium solid oak dining chair. The multi-layered construction ensures structural integrity and the chair's minimalist appearance brings a sense of tranquility to modern dining rooms or kitchens.

Classic and Practical

Crafted using premium solid oak, the Mogensen Dining Chair boasts a lasting design that is both sophisticated and practical. The chair was designed in 1956 and features a generously proportioned frame of solid wood and back of wood moulded in layers, as well as a plywood core seat upholstered with CMHR or HR foam and covered in fabric or leather.

Premium Upholstery

Available in a range of premium leather upholsteries, it offers a distinctive, yet understated design. The chair fits perfectly at a dining table and is available with several different types of padding, making it comfortable for extended use.

Ethical Production

With a focus on ethical production, the chair's leather upholstery is only sourced from animals raised according to strict ethical guidelines. The frame is crafted from Kiln-dried FSC-certified oak wood, and the seat cushion comes with a warranty of 7-25 years.

Craftsmanship and Design

For over a century, Fredericia has been dedicated to craftsmanship and design, reflecting integrity, material expertise, and knowledge.

        Really excellent customer service. Can not recommend this company highly enough - the products are high quality and their communication with the customer is first class. Jonathon always responded promptly to any queries and was very helpful.

        I would definitely buy from them again.

        Olson + Bakers service and products have been outstanding. I can't recommend Jonathan at Olson + Baker enough.

        He is an absolute star and has gone out of his way to provide superb service.

        Fantastic service, Jonathan was extremely helpful through my purchase.

        Definitely recommend and would use again.

        Thanks! Angela

        Beautiful item arrived earlier than indicated.

        Customer service informed me of this & then followed up after delivery to make sure it arrived safely.

        Highly recommend!

        Great range of products.

        Purchased a beautiful rug from here and had a smooth overall buying experience.

        It has been an absolute pleasure buying a lovely piece of furniture from Olsen + Baker. Russell has been a delight to deal with, keeping me informed at every step of the delivery, even down to which colour would fit with my decor - nothing was too much.

        I can’t recommend highly enough.

        Very good service, great communication and arrived very promptly

        Thank you

        Excellent communication and speedy delivery...

        Couldn't have been better and will certainly buy from the company again.

        Lovely website, great communication, fast delivery and they came in at a price other shops couldn't compete with on the chair I was after.

        Easily recommended.

        Beautiful and high quality furniture!

        Excellent delivery and customer services, even during difficult times like Covid 19.

        The service is superb and the website is so intuitive! 10 out of 10! :D Lee

        First class service.

        The Olson Baker team continue to deliver outstanding advice and product knowledge.

        Recently purchased a Nordic Style candle holder, which I had admired at a recent stay at a holiday home in Norfolk.  Product arrived very quickly. Contact via email from Jonathan. Excellent customer service and a gorgeous product too.

        Thank you Jonathan and all at Olson and Baker.

        Bought some lovely wine glasses as a gift, quick delivery, great customer service and high quality product.

        Would definitely buy from Olson and Baker again.

        Excellent product but more importantly during these difficult times was the customer service level and great delivery team ....

        take note Heal’s as you’ve not got a clue how to service customers

        Olson + Baker were wonderful to deal with.

        We purchased our item (a beautiful coat hook) but had to delay delivery due to a trip overseas.

        We weren't dealing with an automated system, just real people who cared enough to help.

        Fantastic customer service throughout the ordering process.

        Great products - really pleased with my order.

        So glad I came across Olson & Baker for my home accessories that I would not find elsewhere on the High Street.
