Best Hans Wegner Wishbone chairs

The iconic CH24 Wishbone Chair by Hans J. Wegner has a special place in the world of modern design thanks to its one-of-a-kind form. Wegner combined the backrest and armrest into a single piece when designing the CH24. Wegner created the Wishbone Chair’s distinctive Y-shaped back to stabilise the steam-bent top while also providing comfortable support.

What is the Wishbone chair, and how does one spot a replica?

The Wishbone dining chairs is a design classic that Charles and Ray Eames in 1948 designed. It is a chair with an iconic look, and it has been featured in many movies, TV shows, and music videos.

The Hans Wegner Wishbone Chairs is an iconic design that the Eameses created in 1948. The chair has been featured in many movies, TV shows, and music videos. The main characteristic of the replica Wishbone Chair is its backrest which resembles the shape of a wishbone because it curves outwards on either side to form two armrests. This design detail gives the chair its signature look.

5 Things to Consider Before Purchasing a Wishbone Chair

Here are five quick facts about the Wishbone Chair replica that will keep you on the edge of your seat, whether you’ve always loved the smooth, clean design or are new to Wishbone mania.

1. Chinese Emperors’ Thrones-inspired it.

The Wishbone Dining Chair is associated with Danish design for obvious reasons. Still, Hans Wegner replica chairs inspiration for the streamlined mix of curves and sharp angles came from images of the Ming dynasty’s wide-seated, high-backed thrones.

2. Ch24 Is The Actual Name Of The Product.

Though it’s now known as the Wishbone Chair or the Y Chair because of its ‘Y’ back frame, Hans Wegner wishbone chairs called it the CH24 when he first designed it. Wegner designed the CH24, as well as its four (less well-known) siblings, the CH22, CH23, CH25, and CH26, in his first three weeks at Carl Hansen & Sn.

3. It Has Been In Existence For Over 70 Years.

Consider this: the Wishbone Chair hasn’t taken a day off in more than half a century. The hans wegner wishbone design has been in continuous production at Carl Hansen & Sn since it was first manufactured in 1950.

4. It Takes Weeks To Build Each Chair.

The Wishing bone Chair is made up of 14 separate components that require 100 separate processes to carve, sand, chisel, and shape, adding nearly three weeks of preparation time before the chair can even begin to be assembled, based on Wegner’s original design.

5. This Isn’t A Paper Pusher.

While paper may not be the first material that comes to mind when thinking of a chair seat, the hundred of feet of paper cord that goes into the Wishbone Chair’s unique geometric chair design is said to have a 50-year life cycle.

How can you tell if a Wishbone is real or fake?

Examine the weaving closely: it should be tight, with near-perfect 90-degree angles, and the front left and right should be identical. The real Wishbone is made from high-quality, sustainable Danish woods like oak, ash, and walnut and has an even colour finish with no knots.

Checklist to help you spot a genuine one:

  • Look at the curved top rail to spot a fake right away. The real Wishbone has no joins because it is made from a single solid piece of steam-bent wood. In the real Wishbone, the seat is supported by curved, tapered dowels.
  • Most significant signs of a fake Wishbone is the seat. The real Wishbone seat has a tight uniform weave and is made from a highly durable paper cord. The phony chairs are made of nylon or synthetic cord at a low cost.
  • Examine the weaving closely: it should be tight, with near-perfect 90-degree angles, and the front left and right should be identical.
  • The real Wishbone is made from high-quality sustainable Danish woods like oak, ash, and walnut, and has a smooth, knot-free finish. The fake chairs have knots in the wood and an uneven finish.
