This chair is like a lost Beatles song.

There is nothing like a good chair.  My favorite furniture designer is Hans Wegner because his chairs are so whimsical yet inviting and ultimately comfortable.  For those of you who feel the same way about HW, you are in luck! 

Recently an unreleased chair design from 50 years ago was discovered in Wegner’s archives. Pictures, clay models and one surviving prototype has led to the release of: Oculus (CH468) 

Available through Carl Hansen & Son, the chair can be yours for $5,000-$7,000 depending on your choice of upholstery/leather.

Wouldn’t it look nice in your living room?

  1. “A chair
    has waited
    such a long time
    to be with
    its person.

    Through shadow
    and fly buzz
    and the floating dust
    it has waited
    such a long time
    to be with
    its person.

    What it remembers
    of the forest
    it forgets,
    and dreams
    of a room
    where it
    waits —

    of the cup
    the ceiling —

    of the
    Animate One.”
