Take a seat…

…now is the time to sit easy!

Are you sitting pretty at your dining table?! Are you rested and well fed? Are you enjoying just sitting down eating delicious food, catching up with friends, having a quiet cup of tea? Well, I am guessing you might not be if it’s a hard, unfriendly and uncomfortable chair you are sitting on. You are perhaps desperate to stand up, stretch your back, to get going, to finish the moment. If that is you then we think it’s time you paid us a visit.

We have got loads of great dining chair options  - all authentic, original and vintage – yes they do stand the test of time (top marks for workmanship to the Danes!). Different chairs are comfortable for different people – but here are just a few of the ones we have…

Ole Wanscher

…a leading figure in the Scandinavian design movement

Delicate. Elegant. And orderly (so very danish).
It’s the world of Danish furniture designer Ole Wanscher (1903 – 1985). We feel so lucky here at squarepeg home when we find some pieces by Ole Wanscher quite simply because they are regarded as such modern classics.

I love the simplicity of the chairs and table, matched with the long low credenza and high drinks cabinet.

The chairs we re-upholstered in a beautiful green kvadrat fabric…

It really is so delicate, so elegant, and so devine-ly orderly. So danish. Come and check it out at squarepeg.

Falling in love at squarepeg

Ever fallen in love with a chair?

Sometimes its just so hard not to fall in love. It’s impossible to turn time back. To ‘un-find’ it. To pretend you don’t really want it. 
And the part that is most heart-wrenching – it’s most probably a one-off. Once its gone, its gone. And then its a tragic love story. You are forever looking for it again.
But when you act on that love – when you buy it, own it, live with it and love it, then it becomes a great love affair. A love that you have chosen.

A vintage pair

of Danish nightstands

A pair of vintage Danish nightstands in teak. $125 each. Very simple and elegant. And perfect for saving on space. Big enough for a glass of water and a book to rest on. And a single drawer for smaller items.

What are you looking for?

A new range of mid-century furniture at squarepeg home…

Some customers at squarepeg are purists. They love danish modern design and are collecting pieces that they fall in love with that melt their purist hearts. Others have more eclectic tastes – they might be searching for a quirky piece, a piece with a difference, with personality.  The common ground for all these people is a love of something a little unusual, or special.  This same desire draws us to hand select authentic vintage pieces. Attached are some pictures of our latest collection on the floor at squarepeg. We think we have something for both the purists and the eclectic sorts out there!


A mahogany dining set in immaculate condition designed by Ole Wanscher. Its an extendable table with six matching dining chairs.


A rare shelving and desk system in rosewood designed by Omann Jun. Consisting of two separate book shelves (either side) and a central desk area that folds away, its in perfect condition.


Just in are two matching rosewood bedside tables (both with two drawers).  Some things are hard to come by and then just don’t seem to hang around…including this vintage danish chair in original upholstery (it sold today).

Just back from restoration is this extendable dining table designed by Johannes Andersen in rosewood.

And lastly this mid-century storage system from the UK provides the perfect elegant answer for storage.
