Design Hans Wegner, 1949
Hardwood, natural cord caning
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 curved hind legs and the semicircular top rail together with the elegant Y-back endows the chair with a gracious and welcoming air.
The CH24 sits well, is spacious and allows its user to change position. The back offers good support and most people feel comfortable in it for a longer period of time. The curved top rail makes it easy to move around and though the arm rests are long enough to give adequate support to your forearms, the chair can still be pushed in close to a table. Today the Y-chair has developed into Wegner's and Carl Hansen's most popular chair by far. CH24 is available in a variety of wood and finish options and also offered with an optional leather seat cushion in your choice of seven colors.
For a limited time, Carl Hansen & Son brings you the essence of Tobacco in a limited edition finish for Hans J. Wegner's CH24 Wishbone Chair. The Tobacco finish is available for this summer only. The Tobacco stain coats the solid oak and gives Wegner's design a rich organic expression.
