The Windsor Chair was designed in 1938 by the Danish architect and cabinetmaker Frits Henningsen. In continuous production at Carl Hansen & Søn until 2003, the majestic chair is now reissued with modern comfort in mind.

MAJESTIC COMFORT

Precision shaped from solid FSC™-certified oak and sanded by hand, the high-backed chair is a fusion of a dining chair and a lounge chair. The Windsor Chair’s clean lines belie its skilled craftsmanship, which requires multiple carpentry techniques to make. Now offered with a leather seat cushion for added comfort, the majestic design is light in its expression thanks to its open spindle frame and gently curved back, seat, and armrests. Each unique chair is not only beautiful to look at but also a distinguished example of traditional craftsmanship refined over centuries.

Frits Henningsen

Designer
Renowned as an uncompromising designer, Frits Henningsen viewed quality craftsmanship as essential, and unlike most cabinetmakers, always designed his own furniture pieces. As a member of the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers Guild, Henningsen became a major driver of the furniture exhibitions of the period, gaining recognition for his perfectionist style and vibrant personality. He gave new expression to traditional designs and drew inspiration from the French Empire, rococo, and British 17th-century furniture.
