We excitedly welcome the new Blue Series of Wishbone chairs, made by Carl Hansen & Son. These cool blue colors are a brand new concept, but the design of the Wishbone chair goes back much further…
This distinctive chair is just one of Danish designer Hans J. Wegner’s five hundred chair designs, and dates back to 1950. The distinct “Y” shape of the back gave this furniture piece its Wishbone name. Although, I have to say the best part of the design is the beautiful curve of the top of the chair. It creates the perfect arm rest during casual conversations.
Carl Hansen & Son places a great emphasis on adhering to Wegner’s original detailed drawings and use of natural materials. All of the wood used comes from renewable and sustainable sources. The hand-woven paper cord seat truly sets this design apart, and it’s quite comfortable too!
The Blue Series introduces new and exciting color options along with a white paper cord seat that makes the blue really pop. Each shade of blue has a unique and vibrant personality. The Caspian Blue is a brilliant teal that makes a bold statement, while the Cayman Blue has a very soft and dreamy look. We’ve chosen to put one of each of the four blues around our table, allowing us to pick our favorite of the day to sit in. And, yes, our favorites do change on a daily basis! Also, check out the new Citrus series, which offers four refreshing shades of green…
“The chair is the thing that is closest to people so it is important that its detailing is in order. I feel details as much as I see them. People touch the furniture, they see with their hands.” -Hans J. Wegner
