Danish designer Hans Wegner's iconic pieces contributed to the timeless international popularity of Danish mid-century modern furniture design. When styled in contemporary spaces, they remain as beautiful and relevant as ever. Described as organic and ergonomic, the molded, hand-crafted forms retain an emphasis on functionality. Wegner views each of his countless chair designs as a work of art. They are the epitome of good taste, blending form and function into chairs so comfortable you will not want to get up!

Comfort and a minimalist design define this mid-century dining chair. The smooth curved back and linear frame, combined with the horn like ends of the back, are a testament to the modern designs that came from mid-century Denmark under Wegner's eye. Paired in a minimal space, with an angular table lamp, creates a stunning feature setting.

This beautiful artistic interior pairs Wegner's CH07 Shell Chair with the Arco Floor lamp, and whitewashed floors to create a minimal modern meeting space. The CH07 Shell Chair is one of most popular designs by the acclaimed Hans J. Wegner. Otherwise known as the “Smiling Chair,” the unique form and floating lines of the stable structure are the result of the designer’s expert understanding of wood and its performance in the production process.

We love how these Wishbone chairs have been used in an industrial kitchen setting, to perfectly blend form and function! Designed in 1950, the Wishbone Chair is one of the most recognized pieces by the acclaimed Danish designer Hans J. Wegner. The CH24 chair or "Wishbone Chair" as it is often called due to the shape of the back, is a light chair and even being an armchair, a relatively small piece of furniture.

The Papa Bear Lounge Chair is a mid-century modernist classic - robust and inviting at the same time. Often called, the most comfortable chair ever made and simply known as model 19, this classic chair has become an icon of mid-century Danish design.
