Inspired by classic British club furniture, Danish designer Frits Henningsen created a modern interpretation of the wingback with his swoopy Heritage Chair. Formerly only available via high-end midcentury dealers, it's back in production and on offer at Carl Hansen  in fabric or leather. Above: The ghostly form of the Heritage Chair in profile. Watch the strangely mesmerizing video of the chair being made at Carl Hansen . Above: The chair has a beechwood frame and is available in a range of fabrics. : Above: A view of the button detailing. Above: Subtly regal, the Heritage chair adds an Audrey Hepburn-like flourish to a room. Did you miss last week's wingbacks? See 10  Easy Pieces: The Wingback is Back .
