With a beautiful solid wood frame and luxurious leather upholstery, the Carl Hansen & Son CH163 Three Seater Sofa adds a solid, reassuring touch to your living spaces. The geometric frame is softened by the addition of the rounded upholstery.
Wegner’s hallmark attention to detail breathes life into the piece, with large cover caps concealing screws that secure the upper part of the legs and armrest upholstery. Enlarged and rotated, the wood grain of the caps travels in a different direction from that of the armrest, instantly highlighting them and adding eye-catching detail to the piece.
With his love of natural materials and his deep understanding of the need for furniture to be functional as well as beautiful, Hans J. Wegner (1914-2007) made mid-century Danish design popular on an international scale. He began his career as a cabinetmaker in 1931 and subsequently entered the Copenhagen School of Arts & Crafts. After receiving his architectural degree in 1938, he worked as a designer in Arne Jacobsen and Erik Muller's architectural office before establishing his own office in 1943.
