Hans J Wegner Style Wing Chair & Ottoman, Apple Green Boucle Danish Wool

I am not a huge fan of reproductions of classics because I think mostly they are of a poorer quality than the original but I also love modern furniture and who can afford it at a blogger’s salary. That’s why when I can get an accurate reproduction that is of a descent quality I sometimes break my own rule.

That is why I am taking a hard second look at the Hans J Wegner Style Wing Chair & Ottoman being produced by Kardiel. The Wing Chair was designed by Wegner in 1962 but the chair wasn’t even put into production until 2006. If I had the money to buy authentic Wing Chair made by Carl Hansen and Son I would, but at $5,260 for the chair alone, not to mention the extra $1,740. just for the foot rest, that just is not in the cards right now. So how can I reproduce the look without paying the price?

Hans J. Wegner-Style Wing ChairKardiel produces a beautiful reproduction of the Wing Chair that is true to the original in dimension and proportions. It is made with a traditional solid birch hardwood frame, real tubular stainless steel base (not chromed steel), and bright and colorful bouclé cashmere wool fabric that looks amazing and comes in colors that Carl Hansen doesn’t make it in like this cool apple green.

Kardiel goes out of their way to reproduce the Wing Chair down to the smallest detail. It is correct from the groove recess to the angle and curve of the back and they are not afraid to give you the full specs on their website. Now for the real reason I am actually considering buying this super cool reproduction. Right now they have a special price on the Wing Chair. You can pick one of these babies up for only $899.00 and yes, that includes the matching footrest!

You can find the Hans J Wegner Style Wing Chair & Ottoman in green apple or many other cool colors of leather and upholstery as well as several other reproductions of classic modern furniture icons at the Kardiel website.
