A stunning midcentury armchair, back in production in all its original glory – the Papa Bear Chair by Hans J. Wegner.

Dating back to 1951 and now produced by Modernica with 'strict adherence to the original design with regard to dimensions', the chair was originally described as 'the most comfortable chair ever made', presumably because of that high back and enveloping arms – a bear hug without the fear of imminment death you could say.

The finish is a mix of walnut and your choice of fabric or leather, the price starts at $2,400, which is around £1,570.
