Carl Hansen & Søn:

Since forging a famous partnership with Hans J. Wegner in the late 1940s, Carl Hansen & Søn has produced some of the designer’s most timeless pieces: the CH24 Wishbone Chair, CH25 Lounge Chair, and CH445 Wing Chair to name a few.

(dream about the CH24 in yellow!)

HAY furniture mixes the innovation of mid-century modern designs into a contemporary context, resulting in chairs, tables and accessories that are at once familiar and new.
