Carl Hansen & Søn’s OW149 Colonial lounge chair is a fine example of mid-century Scandinavian design and one of the best-known works of the Danish designer Ole Wanscher. Released in 1959, the Colonial lounge chair pays tribute to the classic aesthetics of its time in a fresh, contemporary manner. The slender, well-crafted solid wood frame and voluminous cushions create a sophisticated silhouette that invites you to sit back.

The charm of the Colonial lounge chair derives from the combination of timeless design and uncompromised comfort – Wanscher’s essential aim was to design a chair that would be slender and stable at the same time. Later, Wanscher continued the Colonial series with a matching couch, coffee table and footstool, which makes a perfect companion for the lounge chair. The products are made by hand in Denmark.

Ole Wanscher

Ole Wanscher (1903–1985) was a Danish furniture designer and one of the defining figures of the Danish modern style. Wanscher studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts under the iconic designer Kaare Klint and later took over Klint’s professorship. Before becoming an independent designer, Wanscher worked at Klint’s design studio. Many of Wanscher’s designs were inspired by his travels in Europe and Egypt as well as his architectural and democratic approach to design. He aimed at creating functional, timeless and mostly industrially produced furniture for ordinary Danish homes.
