Hans Wegner will be a name well known to those in the world of interior design but for those who don’t pay a particularly close watch to this industry, he was one of the most famous and respected furniture designers of the 20th century and his stand-out piece was that of the Wishbone Chair.

Originally released in 1949, the Wishbone Chair from Hans Wegner immediately received a warm reception and the love of the piece has continued to grow exponentially ever since. The Danish designer was responsible for some truly wonderful pieces of designer furniture but it was his Wishbone Chair for which he perhaps became most well-known. This excellently designed, minimalist piece is not only incredibly comfortable and lightweight, it is a 20th century icon and has increasingly become a must have for those looking to kit out their property with vibrant, stylish furniture.
