Iconic, functional, and stunning? Why yes, wishes do come true. Case in point: the Wishbone Chair, one of Hans J. Wegner's very first models, has been in continuous production since 1950. That's right, this blast from the past fits right into the present with a silhouette inspired by Chinese Ming Dynasty chairs featuring a Y-shaped back and an elegant steam-bent top. Extra points for being the poster child of comfort and design living in perfect harmony.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Once upon a time in a land far away, cabinetmaker Carl Hansen opened a furniture workshop on the Danish island of Funen. The next 100 years lead to what is now Carl Hansen & Søn—the world’s largest producer of famed designer Hans J. Wegner’s furniture that defined iconic mid-century modern style, making living happily ever after a new reality.
