Hans Wegner Papa Bear Chair

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Renowned for it's beautiful design and incredible comfort, the Papa Bear chair has become an icon of 20th century Danish design. This exceptional example of Wegner's masterpiece is in amazing original condition. It features sage green fabric, a charcoal grey seat cushion, teak "paws" and rosewood legs. It has been professionally cleaned and shows only very minor signs of age and use– primarily wear to the welt cord on one of the arms. This is unquestionably the finest example we have seen and one we would consider museum worthy.
