They say three is a crowd, but when it comes to the Hans J. Wegner CH07 Lounge Chair, it's the perfect number. This unique 3-legged chair is a beautiful example of classic minimalist design. Our meticulously-made reproduction is as stylish and elegant as the original. The frame of the chair and three legs are carved from a choice of oak or walnut. The lightly padded seat and backrest is upholstered in semi-aniline leather, which is more resistant to stains than aniline leather. A choice of colours is available for the leather.
THE STORY BEHIND THE HANS J. WEGNER CH07 LOUNGE CHAIR
Hans J. Wegner's famous CH07 Lounge Chair was designed in 1963. Sometimes known as the Shell Chair or Smiling Chair because of its rounded wooden frame, it is renowned for its timeless style and generous comfort. The broad wing-shaped seat provides plenty of support while the sturdy three legs provide an interesting and unusual contrast to traditional chairs.
