Wegner CH 28 easy chair


The CH 28 easy chair is just one of the many designs by Hans J. Wegner that have been re-issued by Carl Hansen & Son. Originally designed in 1952, it looks as sharp today as it must have done back then – indeed an alternative name for it is the 'sawback chair', presumably for those dramatic angles. 

The original chair was made from a combination of oak and teak, using the common 1950s practice of stretching out the more expensive teak by combining it with other woods. This twenty-first century model replaces the teak with a renewable wood source, walnut. There is also a version available that uses just oak.  

So, a seriously nice bit of furniture but the price is a bit serious too  the oak and walnut combination will set you back £1774.
