’50 Style-Wegner Chair

It is very hard for me to talk about a chair in general. Chairs were designed to be simple, functional and some of them to look good. That is why each chair has to be treated individually and this case makes no exception. It is indeed a more particular chair, quite different from the ones you are probably used to, but only because this is a reproduction of a ‘50s chair. It was originally designed by Hans Wegner for a man.

You know when a chair is especially designed for a man’s special place because there are certain features that stand out.Like in this one there are short wooden legs, the backrest is a little wider that the seat and there are armrest; a man’s chair has to have big armrests. This design is very well thought – through, and listen to me when I tell you that a man likes to sit low, with his knees positioned a little bit higher than the hips and leaned on his back with the elbows supported by the armrests.

A man’s chair has to be comfortable but in the same time it has to ensure him a powerful, strong stature; and it does with its hardwood frame, walnut tipped armrests and a nice button-tufted seat back. This marvelous ‘50s style furniture piece will set you back for $1,500.
