A clean and wet towel should be used to wipe the surface of any product that is exposed to ordinary or corrosive liquid within 10 minutes. A piece of dry cloth should then be applied to absorb the residual moisture. Please try not to apply a detergent with a high concentration of alcohol or a bleaching effect to clean household products. If you have no alternative, you must wipe the detergent off immediately after cleaning to remove corrosive liquid residue.

Who is the original designer of the Series 7 chair?
Arne Jacobsen is the designer of the original Series 7™ Chair. In 1955 Jacobsen set out to address some of the points of criticism his Ant got in 1952. The Series 7 is a bigger chair with four legs and optional armrests.
Is the Series 7 chair stackable?
Yes, an authentic Series 7 Chair is stackable. Better yet, it weighs just 4kg (8.82 lbs). The Fritz Hansen Series 7 is an extremely adaptable design, perfect for commercial and domestic settings.
How does Fritz Hansen make the Series 7 chair?
By laminating nine layers of pressure moulded veneer. The outer layers are available in a variety of wood veneers. The seven inner layers are beech veneer. Finally, these veneer layers use a high-quality water-based urea-formaldehyde glue to bind them together.
How can you tell a real Fritz Hansen Series 7 Chair?
The authentic Arne Jacobsen Series 7 Chair will have a Fritz Hansen manufacturer's label under its seat. Older models will feature various different styles of labels and stamps. But the important thing to note is that it bears the Fritz Hansen mark.
Is the Series 7 chair comfortable?
Yes, very comfortable. Arne Jacobsen's Series 7 Chair features nine layers of wood veneer which combine to create a cleverly ergonomic shape. The embracing back and seat mould to your body and result in a surprisingly comfortable modern wood chair.
Arne Jacobsen is one of the greatest architects and designers of our time, an internationally recognised icon of functionalism. Saint Catherine’s College at Oxford University, the National Bank of Denmark, SAS Royal Hotel, Arhus Town Hall, the Danish ‘Bella Vista’ housing estate and the nearby Bellevue Theatre are among his best-known works. Arne Jacobsen was a functionalist, but he also stressed the aesthetic aspects of his work.

Great range of products.
Purchased a beautiful rug from here and had a smooth overall buying experience.
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.
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 ....

Beautiful and high quality furniture!
Excellent delivery and customer services, even during difficult times like Covid 19.
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.
Fantastic service, Jonathan was extremely helpful through my purchase.
