Here you see Hans Wegner sitting in his creation. And as you can see, this Mid-Century chair is a beauty. With lines like this there’s really no need for any other.

No matter the setting…

A perfect fit with the curves of the chairs ready to hug the contours of the live edge table.

When you see this profile, doesn’t it look like the chair is ready to embrace you?

These chairs are just naturals in any company. Here they’re completely at home sitting around the more modern industrial table.

And here with the contemporary kitchen in the background.

Do you see what I mean by how versatile these chairs are? Who doesn’t ‘wish’ for at least one in their home?

I couldn’t resist including this image, because I know that even if you don’t recognize the chairs, you’ll definitely recognize the Ikea pendant! It’s a hot commodity right now and you see it everywhere…

Which of course is a testament to the design of the Wishbone chair. It can be paired with current trends… or old friends.

Like these Mid-Century cohorts gathered here…

And of course by now you know that when it comes to black, I’m in!

But seriously, can you blame me? These chairs are gorgeous.

If you don’t want to commit to black chairs, try accessorizing with just a touch of black instead.

Seems like a good fit, don’t you think? And did you notice the Mid-Century pendant over the table? Funny how two-and-two go together… hint, think Ikea pendant from above.

And with modern times, comes a modern twist. The Wegner Wishbone chair is now available in a rainbow of colours…

Like these that you see here.

I think the chairs take on a whole new life in colour! Check out Danish Design Store to see more… trust me, it’s worth the click.

And in today’s world…

The Wishbone chair is timeless yet moves with the times. Who would’ve known that 60 years later it would be paired with a laptop computer? I think that says it all!

What do you wish for? Would you add a Wishbone chair to your collection, or do you already have one… or two… or?

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!
