By Hans J. Wegner

Created in 1952 by pioneering Danish designer Hans J. Wegner, the masterfully designed CH71 lounge chair is perfectly proportioned to be both elegantly compact and supremely comfortable.

Expertly crafted for compact comfort

With its slender frame and flowing, sculptural form, Hans J. Wegner’s CH71 lounge chair is a testament to the legendary Danish designer’s unique understanding of woodworking and upholstery. Created in 1952, the design shows all the hallmarks of the ‘Master of the Chair’, including a seamless unity of form and function, and a refined aesthetic that has remained effortlessly contemporary throughout the passing decades. As well as being a highly skilled cabinetmaker, Wegner possessed a thorough knowledge of upholstery techniques, allowing him to conceive complex pieces requiring expert craftsmanship. The CH71 lounge chair is one such design, with cushioned curves that wrap flawlessly around a slim, angular frame. The designer also gave great consideration to the chair’s proportions, resulting in a streamlined piece that can add style and softness to even the smallest of spaces. With an array of textiles to choose from, the chair can be upholstered in a variety of colors and textures, while the legs and handles are available in oak and walnut with various finishes.
