Q: I have two Selig Danish Modern chairs that have been in my family for more than 50 years. They have this metal tag on the bottom. The cushions have been reupholstered and the support straps have been replaced, but the wood is in good condition. Is it still possible to get straps? What is the current value of the two chairs?

A: Danish Modern, a minimalist style with clean, simple lines, was popular in the 1950s and '60s. Today the style is often called "midcentury modern." Your chairs were made in Denmark and imported by Selig Furniture Co., one of America's leading importers of contemporary furniture made in Denmark and other Scandinavian countries. Selig Furniture Co. was founded in Gardner, Mass., in 1931 and moved to Leominster, Mass., in 1939. Selig was bought by Simmons in 1970. You can order replacement straps for Selig and other Danish Modern chairs at FagasStraps.com. The rubber straps have a clip on each end that fits into a slot on the chair frame. Value of your chairs: about $100 each.
