Hans Wegner Vintage Sawbuck Chairs for Carl Hansen CH28 in Oak & Leather, 1951

About the Item

An icon of 20th century seating design still celebrated 72 years after its introduction—the Sawbuck chair by Hans Wegner for Carl Hansen, 1951. Montaperto Studios is pleased to offer a vintage pair in Oak and top grain brown Italian leather. Very good vintage condition, with original manufacturer’s mark present to underside. This is the fully upholstered version of this design, which triumphs in comfort and aesthetics over the purely wooden seat and back configurations. Strength where you need it, comfort where you feel it. Pair is available for viewing in Brooklyn, NY.
