Hans J. Wegner Shell Chair :

The sculptural and artistic Shell Chair CH07 is one of the most popular designs by the acclaimed Hans J. Wegner. Also known as the “Smiling Chair,” the unique form and floating lines of the stable structure are the results of the designer’s extensive understanding of the qualities of wood and its performance in the production process. The curved form of the seating shell and the padded cushion ensures comfort, while the arched legs provide stable support. The unique, three-legged piece is one of the iconic furniture designs that established the popularity of mid-century Danish design on an international level. Hans J. Wegner is considered one of the most prolific Scandinavian designers, whose creations feature in museums worldwide.

About the Designer

See Full Collection of Hans Jørgensen Wegner

Essential to assisting the international popularity of mid-century Danish design, Hans Jørgensen Wegner was born in southern Denmark in 1914. Skilled as an apprentice cabinet maker, Wegner attended the modernist-influenced Danish School of Arts and Crafts and Architectural Academy in Copenhagen.Hans Jørgensen Wegner’s style and vision are often described as Organic Functionality, a modernist approach with emphasis on functionality. The Dane’s legacy is celebrated for his landmark approach to designing chairs, experimenting with minimalist shapes and overlapping frames. In his own words, Wegner enjoyed ‘stripping the old chairs of their outer style and letting them appear in their pure construction.’Wegner received several major design prizes for his work, from the Lunning Prize in 1951 and the coveted Grand Prix of the Milan Triennale in the same year to the Prince Eugen Medal in Sweden and the Danish Eckersberg medal. In 1959, he was impressively made Honorary Royal Designer for Industry by the Royal Society of Arts in London, whilst his work exhibits within MoMA in New York and the Die Neue Sammlung in Munich.

  1. Jaeden Koch

    Love how rustic this chair is. We ordered the cowhide leather and it looks really good on the oak base. Highly recommend this Shell Chair

  2. Arlo Milne

    This chair is so cute, first I saw it it instantly put a smile on my face. I ordered this chair back in March, because it is also very children friendly since they’re all round edges. Definitely my favorite chair so far. Can’t recommend this Shell Chair enough

  3. Ross Sampson

    Definitely the oak is my favourite on this Shell chair, it contrasts the black and white cowhide beautifully as well

  4. Carole Carpenter

    Order one 3 months ago and I’m ordering my second piece. This chair is absolutely a killer, great approachable design and big applause to the leather quality

  5. Waleed Proctor

    We have three kids and we love fashion so I know it is very hard to find furniture to satisfy both the criteria, and then we found this Shell Chair and we absolutely fell in love. The color of the wood veneer is bright and approachable also the black aniline is absolutely pretty and hide stains easily (kids ya know). 10/10 for the friendly design and 10/10 for your excellent service

  6. Isis Reeves

    The curb out to the side of this chair is so fun, it provides us lots of space and the cashmere looks fashionable as well! Very happy with this chair

  7. Theia Cullen

    Bought my shell chair grey cashmere, still happy even though I would exchange it for a brighter color. I highly recommend this chair it looks lovely

  8. Herbert Delaney

    I was looking for the shell chair pink color and I found furnishplus online and I fall in love with blue cashmere instead

  9. Iyla Conley

    I love it! I bought the Shell Chair to use in my livingroom, it is comfortable, beautiful, and just what I wanted. It was delivered quickly and was just as advertised.
