Pestle and mortar by Robert Welch

The latest instalment in our monthly twentytwentyone is 20 series of editorials is exceptional in that it has been defined by our customers.

For this month’s edit we have analysed furniture, lighting and accessories sales over the past two decades to reveal the 20 designs that have proved most popular with our customers over the past two decades.

The resulting selection of classic and contemporary pieces ranges from unique decorative objects such as hand-carved wooden crows to design classics including the String shelving system, the Tulip table and the perennially popular DSW side chair.

This edit is a testament to the good taste and vision of our customers over the years and we would like to extend our thanks to them.

Live papercord weaving demonstration at Upper Street with Carl Hansen's master weaver Benny

Visitors to our Upper Street shop on the morning of Friday 10th June were lucky enough to observe one of the many highly skilled processes involved in the construction of each Carl Hansen & Son chair.

Live papercord weaving demonstration at Upper Street with Carl Hansen's master weaver Benny

Carl Hansen’s master weaver Benny was in-store to offer a live demonstration of the craft of papercord weaving, working to create a new seat for an oak-framed CH22 chair by Hans Wegner.

blog-7

The CH22 lounge chair occupies a very special position in the history of Danish design, being part of the debut collection that Wegner designed for Carl Hansen & Son in the 1950s, alongside such classics as the CH24 Wishbone chair and the CH25 lounge chair.

The CH22 is now being reissued by Carl Hansen along with its companion, the CH26 armchair. Both have been produced to Wegner’s original specification and are now available to view and order at our shop and showroom.

All visitors to the shop during the Carl Hansen papercord weaving demonstration received a free print

Visitors to the shop during the demonstration received a complementary Carl Hansen print as a memento.

Many thanks to Benny and Carl Hansen & Son for a remarkable illustration of the craft, expertise and heritage that are integral to each Carl Hansen chair.
