Pieces of Nordic Happiness

Carl Hansen & Søn | Armchairs & lounge chairs

Carl Hansen & Søn is a family-run Danish company specialising in classic wooden furniture. The story of Carl Hansen & Søn dates back to 1908 when Danish cabinetmaker Carl Hansen established a small furniture workshop on the island of Funen. Since the beginning, the finest Danish craftsmanship and collaborations with skilful designers have been the company's two main principles. Carl Hansen & Søn is known especially for a long-term relationship with Hans J. Wegner, the designer of the iconic Wishbone chair, as well as collaborations with other mid-century Danish designers, such as Arne Jacobsen, Børge Mogensen, Ole Wanscher and Kaare Klint. Besides preserving Danish design classics, Carl Hansen & Søn also works with interesting contemporary designers.

Crown your home with a Scandinavian armchair or lounge chair

Armchairs and lounge chairs are furniture design’s way to celebrate relaxation, an unhurried atmosphere and time for winding down. Armchairs, lounge chairs and recliners invite you to take a break from the everyday grind and concentrate on what feels best for you – a good book, watching TV, knitting or taking a nap. Finnish Design Shop has the right armchair for every room, whether you’re looking for a proper lounge chair for the living room, an easy chair for the bedroom, a hanging egg chair or a light wicker chair for the porch. If an outdoor lounge chair is what you’re looking for, browse our selection of outdoor lounge chairs and sofas.

The best lounge chairs combine superb comfort with an elegant, timeless design. A well-designed armchair is an investment that will last from generation to generation. High-quality armchairs are made from premium materials – our selection includes a fantastic range of both wooden, metallic and plastic-framed lounge chairs, upholstered with a variety of materials including leather, wool fabric, velvet and sheepskin. Comfy poufs and ottomans are ideal partners for armchairs, and side tables and coffee tables make lounging even more pleasant. You can also use decorative cushions and cushion covers to spice up your chair.
