The Papa Bear Chair is Just Right!

Poppa Bear Chair

The Papa Bear Chair is by far one of the coolest chairs in retro, mid-century modern design history. Designed by Hans Wegner, creator of popular chairs like the Peacock chair and the Bull chair, the Popa Bear chair was designed bu Wegner in 1951 for AP Stolen of Denmark and was in popular production until 1969.

Optional Papa Bear OttomanThis cool and comfortable mid-century masterpiece has broad shoulders and a tall button tufted, winged back with broad arm pads that are warmly upholstered right up to the peekaboo style, solid North American walnut tips. The walnut is carried over to the retro, tapering danish style legs of the chair and the legs and side handles of the optional matching ottoman. The Papa Bear Chair is one of those homey, comfortable chairs that make you feel cozy just looking at it, let alone sitting in it.  It is a great place to read, watch TV or just lounge around for a while.

Long out of production, the Papa Bear Chair is being again produced by Modernica using the same exacting standards used to produce the original. It comes in a bunch of cool fabrics in some great modern styles and colors and even in some cool leathers if you want.

This faithful reproduction of the original is available from YLiving and costs around $2895.00 and it looks best when coupled with the optional Papa Bear Ottoman for $650.00.  When you consider the cost of an original Papa Bear Chair and the historical significance of its design, that is a mere fraction of its cost. So come and get a big bear hug from this mid-century classic and you will see that the Papa Bear Chair is just right.
