I have that thing for chairs… especially the Shell Chair CH07 by Hans J. Wegner. This great piece of design, with its it’s organic curved seat, was introduced in 1963. It is one of Wegners most sculptural pieces and one of my favorites!

The front legs are made of one piece of continuous laminated wood, the back leg from another. It really is a beautiful pieces of woodwork! To seeing the making of click here.

I personally love the combination of wood and leather/fabric this Chair comes in.

This chair was first presented in 1963 but still looks modern and timeless. And that’s the greatest compliment and proof for a truly marvelous design.
