Behind the Curtains – Hans Wegner's Papa Chair

Behind the Curtains – Hans Wegner’s Papa Chair

An undisputed icon of Danish design, Hans Wegner’s Papa Chair stands out among throngs of re-editions and knockoffs. Papa is much more rare than say a Le Corbusier chaise or Barcelona chair. And when you find one, it’s original. These aren’t being turned out in China’s factories like so many copies.

For collectors of mid-modern, this is a must have. And this one was available for $9,850 through 20th Century Interiors.

'Wrinkle' by Ditte Hammerstroem


Quote from DesignBoom: ‘Wrinkle’ by Ditte Hammerstroem

‘Wrinkle’ is a seating line developed by young danish designer Ditte Hammerstroem. The collection features two love seats that have the same simple structure and rather ornate upholstery. The fabric is stretched over the center of the piece and then made to appear as if it is tied to the legs. gathering of the fabric near the edge creates even more texture. each sofa has a slightly different style,
but both are equally as dramatic.
