A true epitome of Danish modern furniture design, the rocking chair was one of Wegner's first chairs put into production, combining functionality with a poetic and playful edge. Expertly crafted from oak with a stunning natural paper yarn cord seat, the chair is available in warming natural oak, a more contemporary lacquered black finish or distinctive oiled walnut. Boasting a tall spindled backrest and high armrests, the inviting seat is both supportive and comfortable, perfect for creating a calming seat space of relaxation in a lounge or bedroom. Why not pair with the matching Fredericia Wegner J16 Stool.
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.
