Poul Hundevad was born in Vamdrup, Denmark in 1917. He trained as a carpenter and, for a time, owned his own cabinetmaking shop and furniture factory. In the early 1950’s he founded & based Hundevad & Company in Vamdrup, Denmark principally producing furniture by himself and by Danish designers like Carlo Jensen, Kaj Winding, Harald Plum and Mogens Plum. In 1960, he began production of his most famous work, the Guldhøj chair, a design that was a direct copy of a folding chair found in a burial mound in Vamdrup that dated back to the Scandinavian Bronze Age. Over the years he designed many dining chairs, tray carts, sideboards, cabinets, trolley carts, and bookcases. Poul Hundevad was a quintessential Danish furniture designer. He looked to the past, stayed true to traditional craftsmanship and techniques, yet created pieces that were thoroughly modern. -VHB Great Danish Designers 101. Hundevad & Company is still in production today.

This is a classic Scandinavian Modern china cabinet by iconic designer Poul Hundevad! Don’t let it go… make it yours!!

the details

Lovely Poul Hundevad for Hundevad & Co. Scandinavian Modern teak china hutch cabinet, display cabinet, or bookcase. Comprised of 2 pieces, a top hutch featuring bypass doors with glass inserts and four adjustable shelves and a bottom buffet with 4 drawers and bifold doors with maple interior shelves. Beautiful condition, keeping in mind that this is vintage and not new so will have signs of use and wear. We repaired several small nicks where the veneer is chipped but there is a significant scratch on 1 side of the upper cabinet & unfilled scratches in the top of the buffet from sliding. We added felt to the bottom of the top piece and Danish oiled the entire cabinet. Please see photos and zoom in for details. We attempt to portray any imperfections. Circa, 1970-1980’s.
