Dazzling Danish designer furniture

The company Carl Hansen & Son was established in 1908. It is one of the oldest furniture makers of Denmark and the largest producer of designer furniture designed by the renowned Danish designer Hans J. Wegner.

Originally the company produced traditional cabinets for which various kinds of Danish woods were used. In the 1940s, Carl Hansen & Son became the preferred partner of innovative Danish designers of designer furniture.

The relationship between Hans J. Wegner and Carl Hansen & Son goes back to the year 1949, when the legendary Wishbone Chair, as well as a number of other designs, went into production.
