Vintage H Wegner CH53 Oak&Danish Papercord Stool

Certified Price







Posted on December 12, 2017.

Designed by Hans Wegner in 1966 & produced by Carl Hansen in Denmark, this is an iconic & beautiful seating example. The beautiful, minimalist form of rich oak frame with tapering legs is perfectly proportioned from floor-serving as an excellent side chair-& encouraging a comfortable natural posture. This circa late 60’s/early 70’s example is in nearly flawless original condition, with negligible signs of age or use on the finish-& no indication of age on the papercord; truly testimonial to the superb design & execution. Original strong & clean Danish Papercord seat fiber is clean/sound/fantastic, as this particular stool has spent its years serving as a tray table base, used as seating on very few occasions. Suitable for a wide variety of uses, it’s tall enough to be used around a dining table and flexible enough for the living room, front hall or bedroom. This iconic form is again being made by Carl Hansen- & is available through select retail design sources at price points which reflect their quality & value. Shown in the listing images above with a CH57 armchair of the same vintage (designed in ‘62)-in excellent, original shape. CH57 chair is NOT included in this listing price, but is also available. Additional, current detail photos can be shared upon inquiry.
