CH24 CHS colours lacquered dining chair by Hans Wegner for Carl Hansen & Son.

Designed in 1949, the CH24 dining chair was one of the first of the chairs that Hans Wegner produced for Carl Hansen & Son. It has been in continuous production since 1950.

Often known as the Wishbone Chair because of the uniquely shaped vertical element at the centre of the chair back, the CH24 is a genuine classic of modern design. Despite the generous curvature of the arms, the CH24 is lightweight and relatively small. It has a gracious and welcoming air that allows it to sit happily in a range of different contexts. 

It is available in solid beech wood finished with a choice of 13 Carl Hansen lacquered colours with a woven seat in natural or black paper cord.

Please note that beech wood has a minimal grain structure visible when painted, in contrast to oak and ash which have a clearly visible wood grain when painted.

The CH24 is available in a range of other woods and finishes: please see  'More products in this range' below for alternative options.

The full range of Carl Hansen colours can be viewed in the image above and in the downloadable pdf sheet opposite. Please enter the appropriate colour reference number when placing your order.

An optional leather cushion is also available, sized to sit perfectly on the papercord seat. Cushion upholstered in Loke leather in golden brown, dark brown, brown, dark red, red, white, or black. See downloadable upholstery sheet for details and images.
