Seat Weaving While Rving

Coming to a Town Near You

7 July, 2021

Danish furniture designer Hans Jorgen Wegner (1914-2007) learned woodworking as a boy, the son of a cobbler, in Tondern, in southern Denmark.

Wegner studied design in Copenhagen in 1938, then hired by Jacobsen and Erik Moller to design furniture for the town hall in Aarhus, Denmark.

Hans Wegner opened his own design studio in 1943. Wegner was often referred to as the master of the chair and created many chairs for Carl Hansen & Søn from 1949 until 1968.


CH23 Dining Chair


The CH23 dining chair was one of the first chairs Hans J. Wegner designed exclusively for Carl Hansen & Søn in 1950 at the age of 35.

The CH23 chair incorporates many sophisticated details, the most notable being among the elegant cruciform cover caps and a double-rail woven seat. The arched back legs increase the chair's stability.

When first released made from teak the chair was the bestseller, however, was pulled from production in the 1960s and then rereleased in 2017 made from oak or American walnut.


CH24 Chair Wishbone or "Y" Chair


The CH24 Wishbone or “Y” Chair is the most famous and sold chair designed by Wegner originally released in 1949.

The chair is part of the "Chinese chairs" series, which was inspired by portraits of Danish merchants sitting in Ming chairs.

When designing the CH24, Wegner chose to combine the back- and armrest into a single piece. The steam-bent top provides stability and comfortable support.

The Wishbone Chair is named after the characteristic Y-shaped back developed by Wegner.

The easiest way to spot a replica is by looking at the curved top rail. The real Wishbone has no joins. Curved, tapered dowels support the seat of the true Wishbone chair.


Dimensions:

21.66" W x 19.69" D x 19.69" H


CH25 Lounge Chair or Easy Chair


Beautiful from all angles — “A chair is to have no backside,” said Hans J. Wegner, designer of the Easy Chair. “It should be beautiful from all sides and angles.”

The introduction caused a stir due to Wegner’s choice of materials on the backrest and seat. The woven paper cord is a replacement for seagrass developed during World War II and had not been used in furniture before.

The Danish cord material had an impressive tensile strength and offered optimal durability, lasting for upwards of 50 years with proper care and maintenance.

The CH25 lounge chair was very popular and has been in continuous production since 1950.


Dimensions:

28" W x 29" D x 29" H


J16 Rocking Chair


Hans Wegner's Gyngestol / Rocking Chair J16 was inspired by traditional Windsor and Shaker furniture. The J16 chair was designed for Fredericia Furniture with a slotted back to weave the Danish cord in front of the vertical back rails. After a process to make the chair easier to produce and with help from Danish designer Børge Mogensen the production started in 1944


PP512 Folding Chair


The PP512 Folding Chair was designed in 1949 by Hans J. Wegner for Johannes Hansen. 


W2 Dining Chairs


Teak W2 Dining Chairs by Hans J. Wegner for C.M. Madsen, 1950s woven with a binding cane.

Dimensions:

21.9" W x 18.1" D x 29.7" H

Caning Canada is Heading for Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

27, June 2021

We have spent a wonderful three months in Cochrane, Alberta seat weaving while RVing and are very excited to be heading for Saskatoon, Saskatchewan for six weeks on July 14, 2021. 


We originally planned on going to Saskatoon as there was a mid-century dealer who needed to have several Danish cord chair sets woven including a set of the simply beautiful Hans Wegner double rail CH23 dining chairs. A set of the Poul Cadovis Pia chairs, a set of the Model 316 chair by Peter Hvidt & Orla Mølgaard Nielsen for Søborg Møbelfabrik 1958 and a FD-147L Teak lounger by Peter Hvidt and Orla Molgaard Nielsen for France & Daverkosen which was designed in 1951. Unfortunately, we haven't been able to connect with them for their projects and hope everything is well with them during these trying times. 


We have a few other projects booked which will block out about three weeks of the six weeks we plan to seat weave and explore the beautiful parks located in the North of Saskatchewan. If you are located in Saskatchewan and require seat weaving please send us a message with a photo of the front, back, and underside of the piece so we can provide you with an estimate and get you booked in while we are in the area. We will be leaving Saskatoon at the end of August 2021.


We currently have another set of the Peter Hvidt Model 316 chairs booked, a couple of Moller 401's which were designed in 1974 by Jorgen Henrik Moller, a handwoven cane project, a pre-woven cane dining set, and a set of fibre rush chairs being dropped by a couple moving from Ontario to Edmonton on their way by Saskatoon. 


We are so very excited to have such a lovely variety of woven chairs to restore, to chat with some new folks and find out a bit about their stories, and last but not least, explore another beautiful part of our Country.
