Carl Hansen & Søn’s OW149F Colonial stool is a fine example of mid-century Scandinavian design and a perfect companion for the Colonial lounge chair, designed by the Danish designer Ole Wanscher in 1959. With its simple and timeless design, the footstool can also be used as an independent piece, for instance as an extra seat next to a sofa set. The slender, well-crafted solid wood frame and voluminous cushions create a sophisticated silhouette for the Colonial stool, which has been 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.
