VL118 – Unique dining chair with first-class comfort

VL118 is a versatile dining chair designed by Vermund Larsen in 1964.

VL118 combines comfortable back support and stylish armrests to create a masterpiece in chair design. The chair is elegantly shaped using a combination of FSC-certified wood and high-strength steel with the option of upholstery made from cloth or leather. The composition of the material provides a perfect balance between functionality, aesthetics, and comfort. VL118 is crafted and finished by hand at our facilities in Aalborg.

The dining chair´s light construction and elegant design is not only pleasing to the eye, but the comfort is incomparable, whether you prefer a chair with solid wood or padded finish. The chair can also be hung on the edge of the table (for easy cleaning underneath) without scratching the tabletop or the chair itself.


All wood is FSC-certified and produced by Danish suppliers.
The chair comes in different wood variants: natural oiled oak, white-oiled oak, smoked oak, black-stained oak, and natural oiled walnut. All padded surfaces have an FSC-certified core made from beech. The chair´s frame is made from high-strength steel, which comes in three different finishes: chrome, matt chrome, and black powder coat.

All textile and leather surfaces are produced in Denmark and carefully upholstered with quality padding. We offer the following types of fabric: Capture, Mood, Crisp, and Re-wool, as well as different types of leather.

Materials can be combined to express your own taste and style.

World-Class Comfort

All our VL designs are highly comfortable and VL118 is no exception. The attention to detail and the backward angle of the seat reveal many years of experience when it comes to crafting the world´s most comfortable chair.

A simple and stylish steel back-brace helps support your body without compromising the comfort the chair provides. The backrest´s organic lines run out in an elegantly shaped armrest that ensures optimal comfort over long periods of time. VL118 is the perfect chair for the family dining table.

Back in the 1960s, the VL118 was our best-selling dining chair, both in Denmark and abroad. The comfortable fabric and timeless design prompted us to re-launch the VL118 in 2014. Our goal was to bring the chair back home to Denmark, and that is exactly what we have done by enhancing its Nordic style.

What shall I choose?

There are many options with VL118, as you can “build” the chair you prefer for your home. We have made a guide on what to look out for when going through the various options of the VL118.

Before choosing the frame’s finish for your new chair, it is a good idea to look at what metal surfaces you have in your home already to ensure that your furniture matches as good as possible. For example, if you will use the chair at a table with a metal frame, most customers choose that the frame finish of the chair match this.

All frames are durable and made of high-strength steel. Choose between:

  • Black: Powder coated with a matte and exclusive finish
  • Chrome: Chromate with a shiny and decorative surface
  • Matte chrome: Chromate with a matte surface but still metallic.

We recommend that the wood surface match other wood surfaces in your home, e.g. the tabletop on your dining table. It provides a beautiful visual whole around the dining area where chairs and dining table go together perfectly. Mixing different types of wood can also give a beautiful and exciting dining room – it all comes down to your taste. Wood goes great with almost any kind of surface on dining tables.

The wooden surfaces of VERMUND chairs are easy to clean and require minimal maintenance.

For dining table chairs, we generally recommend leather, as it is easier to clean than fabric. Furthermore, if there are small children in the family, leather is easy to wipe off. On the other hand, fabric makes a beautiful finish but is more delicate to daily cleaning and maintenance.

You can choose between Mood fabric, Sierra leather, and Savanne leather.

Mood is a beautiful fabric, consisting of 92% wool and 8% polyamide, which provides high durability and good seating comfort. The design is modern and lasts for many years.

Both types of leather are cleaning-friendly and have a durable surface.

Sierra leather has a durable surface that is easy to clean. It is uniform but with a visible leather structure that will retain its appearance for many years. Black Sierra has a uniform base colour, whereas cognac-coloured Sierra leather has a two-colour flaming, which creates a visual effect.

Savanne-leather has a visible leather structure where there may be minor natural marks and scars after the animal’s life. Black and cognac Savanne has a uniform base colour and has a more even look than Sierra leather. Savannah has a nice, soft, and breathable surface, which gives you excellent sitting comfort for many years. OEKO-TEX certified.

  • If you want a different type of textile or leather, this is also possible, as we have an in-house upholstery workshop – contact our customer service for an offer.

We recommend regular vacuuming of the furniture, preferably every week. You can remove most stains with lukewarm water, using a clean, white cotton cloth


Wipe the surface with a damp lint-free cloth and wipe with a dry cloth. Never use abrasive products 


Wipe the wooden surface with a damp lint-free cloth and wipe with a dry cloth. For ongoing maintenance of the wood, you can use oil. Oil will maintain the glow of the wood: Use a furniture oil in nature for wooden surfaces in walnut, natural oak, and smoked oak. Use a white pigmented furniture oil for oiled white oak.
