Wishbone Chair Premium Finish Natural Ash


Natural Ash with a natural woven seat.

A single-piece curved backrest shaped using traditional steam-bending technique that ensures a perfect form without compromising the integrity of wood. No joints to back or arms as per the traditional Hans Wegner wishbone Y-Chair design.

The wood is treated with wood-wax Oil (VOC free). The seat is in a hand-woven cord.

What is paper cord? Hans Wegner and other Scandinavian furniture makers, first used paper cord in the 1940's, after the war when materials were in short supply. It is a 3-ply fibre that is natural and an extremely durable material. Treated with a light wax coating prior to weaving, the natural color is made from pure unbleached paper whilst the black cord is dyed prior. All paper cord is sustainable, completely biodegradable and eco-friendly.

Paper cord seats require minimal care, are cool and comfortable and they will gain a patina over time. It is very hard wearing when woven correctly. For cleaning, it simply needs a wipe with a damp cloth and a neutral soap lye, but not too often as that can wear the fibres.                                                                      

It's simplicity is its beauty, and its clean lines and curves make it a timeless Scandinavian design classic. This is a premium reproduction of the Wishbone or CH24 Y-Chair as it is also known, a design that is regarded by many as the most beautiful chair ever designed by the 'Master Chairmaker' Hans Wegner.
