The black version of Hans J. Wegner’s  Round Chair is produced in solid oak or ash with a seat in the finest quality aniline leather.

When first exhibited the Round Chair attracted little notice from the Danish media when Wegner exhibited it at Copenhagen’s Cabinetmaker Guild Exhibition in 1949. Later, in a letter to journalist/writer Henrik Steen Møller, Wegner had this to say about it: ‘As for my round chair, The Chair, there wasn’t a word in the Danish newspapers.’ But all of this was to change when news of the exhibition reached the American press, thanks to architect Viggo Steen Møller, the editor of the periodical, Dansk Kunsthåndværk (Danish Arts & Crafts), who served as intermediary.
