When Børge Mogensen asked his good friend Hans J. Wegner in 1944 if he would be godfather to his son, Peter, it also marked the origin of one of the most famous pieces of Danish children’s furniture ever to see the light of day – the chair that came to be called Peter’s Chair. Wegner designed Peter’s Table the following year.
