Wanting: Wishbone Chair

March 21, 2012 § 1 Comment

Iconic design alert: The Hans J. Wegner ‘Wishbone Chair’

Why I want this chair…

  • light and airy in feeling
  • comes in a variety of finishes and colours
  • the frame makes a statement – most definitely
  • sculptural as well as comfortable
  • suits any decor – trust me on this one!

You’ll recognize it because it’s everywhere these days! This 1950’s design is a masterpiece of craftsmanship with over 100 production steps being carried out by hand! Or at least this is true for the authentic chair. Buyer beware. Here’s a great article on how to distinguish between the real deal and the impostor. Or, just go directly to the souce… Carl Hansen & Son.
