Danish designer Ole Wanscher possessed a unique ability to add a sculptural dimension to his furniture. Carl Hansen & Søn has added the 1951 Beak Chair to its collection alongside his elegant Colonial Series – you can now see examples of both of these beautiful chairs at our shop.
We are also running a special promotion on selected products in the Ole Wanscher range which runs until the 31st March. If you would like to know more why not drop into our showroom, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org on phone 01224 467892.

Carl Hansen & Son was established in 1908 and has been at the forefront of Danish modern design for more than sixty years, bringing expert craftsmanship, quality and attention to detail to the practical, timelessly stylish designs of Hans J Wegner, Frits Henningsen and Ole Wanscher. These collaborations have resulted in some of the most recognisable pieces of Scandinavian mid-century design: Wegner’s Wishbone and Shell Chairs, and Wanscher’s Colonial Chair. The rich heritage of this co-operation is revisited in the recent introductions of the colourful CH88 dining chair and the swooping, sculptural elegance of Henningsen’s Signature Chair.

This is furniture intended for daily use, made with care and intelligence. To this day, many of the manufacturing processes are undertaken by hand. The Wegner-designed CH24 Wishbone Chair is a great example – it takes more than 100 manual operations to manufacture each chair and each seat takes a skilled weaver about and hour to complete. This chair has been in continuous production since its introduction in 1950, a testimony to its enduring style, comfort and quality.
Carl Hansen offer stylish, comfortable and hard wearing furniture for lounge, dining, storage and home office solutions. Lounge chairs and sofas are available in a wide range of fabric and leather finishes. The striking floating form of the Shell Chair and the Dream Chair are marvels of furniture engineering and contrast with the classically Scandinavian CH25. The Oculus and Wing Chairs offer a restrained elegance, while the Heritage Chair draws its inspiration from 17th century British furniture. The sofa range offers mid-century elegance freely combinable with other lounge elements.
