…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…
Come in and have a seat. We cater to all perfect-chair-hunters out there!

…Some vintage sofas
Ben managed to hunt down a great range of sofas and armchairs on his last furniture finding excursion to Denmark – including pieces designed by Hans Wegner, leather stouby sofas and timber-framed sofas by Ole Wanscher. (I know – how did he squeeze them all in?!)
These are just two of the vintage sofas that arrived in our last shipment… just to wet your moozy-day appetite….
Its a 3-seater sofa designed by Peter Hvidt and Orla Molgaard and it’s classically simple and understated. With original charcoal fabric it’s a really elegant piece.
I think we have a sofa for you to love. And one thing is for certain when you buy a piece from us – its an original. It’s authentic – every single piece of furniture at squarepeg. Don’t you want to fight the fakes? Sit on something real? Come and find it (and fall in love).

…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.

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.

of Danish nightstands
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!
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).
