Rare Pair of Hans Wegner CH22 Easy Chairs by Carl Hansen

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

The CH22 by Hans Wegner is a delightful design. Low, wide, light in scale, they are shockingly comfortable. A matched pair is difficult to find, but these are far more rare. The design is typically seen with an exposed wood back and a woven paper cord seat. This uncommon version features an upholstered seat and back, increasing the comfort two-fold. The contrast of the oak frame and the rich chocolate brown leather is very pleasing. In twenty years we have only seen two other pair of upholstered CH22 chairs.
