Last week Carl Hansen & Søn released the Wegner CH25 Easy Chair in a rich cherry wood. There are only 25 of these beautiful chairs available worldwide, making them some of the rarest Hans Wegner pieces in existence.
Despite this, the Cherry CH25 costs the same as the regular oak chairs: $2,885.75 on sale ($3,395.00 after tomorrow, 10/16).
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own an extremely rare version of one of Hans Wegner’s original designs.
It’s so rare, in fact, that Carl Hansen & Søn hasn’t even released photos of it! However, below you’ll see the cherry finish, as well as images of the chair. The image that’s closest to this limited edition chair is the one with the baby sitting in it. Although keep in mind that the limited edition version has a natural paper cord seat.

The Trinidad Chair is a modern classic and one of designer Nanna Ditzel’s greatest successes. Ditzel was inspired by the traditional fretwork techniques of Trinidad in designing this distinctive chair.
Carl Hansen & Son recently reissued the Wegner CH33 Chair, so you no longer have to scour specialty auctions to get your hands on this beauty.
Hans Wegner designed the CH33 Chair in 1957 with a solid wood frame and a veneer seat and back. The many varieties and comfortable form make the CH33 Chair ideal for dining rooms or kitchens, as well as hotel restaurants or corporate canteens.
The Hans Wegner CH318 Table is a beauty. Plain and simple. Like his chairs, Wegner’s tables demand the very best of skilled craftsmen, with construction and joints that are as sturdy, stable and durable as they are beautiful. And it’s no coincidence that Wegner’s dining tables complement his chairs perfectly.

Robert Dudley Best drew the first drafts of the lamp that would later become synonymous with his name when he studied to become an industrial designer in Paris and Düsseldorf. Since the Bestlite BL3 Floor Lamp was the first example of Bauhaus in the UK, strong arguments were needed before the lamp could be put into production.
We’re glad that Best prevailed.

The Fritz Hansen PK8 Chair is a relatively new addition to the Fritz Hansen collection. For many years, The PK8™ existed only as a prototype in the home of Hanne Kjærholm, the wife of Poul Kjærholm. The PK8 was put into production in close collaboration with Hanne Kjærholm and introduced to the public in connection with the 2007 exhibition about Poul Kjærholm, “The furniture architect”, at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, north of Copenhagen.
