Carl Hansen & Son is selling a limited edition Wishbone chair – for one day only. George Spencer Designs has extended its showroom and 2LG launch their first interior design course
The first model of the Wishbone chair was designed by Hans J Wegner in 1949.
Celebrated for its elegant style, intricate craftsmanship and overall comfort, it has been in continuous production ever since and is considered both Carl Hansen & Son’s most iconic product and a wider international design icon.
Carl Hansen & Son celebrate Wegner’s birthday every year with a new version of the Wishbone Chair using different wood types.
This year’s chair will be produced in a limited edition, high-gloss lacquered mahogany that complements the pale tones of the hand-woven seat. Additionally, it features a small brass plate on the inside of the chair frame, which has been engraved with Wegner’s signature and date of birth.
As Hans J. Wegner’s birthday fell on Good Friday this year, the special edition of the Wishbone Chair can be purchased on Thursday, 8 April 2021 only.
In other news – one of Britain’s longest established fabric houses, George Spencer Designs, has extended its Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour showroom by an additional 710sq ft. All the better to showcase the company’s ever-expanding collection of fabrics, wallpapers and trimmings.
George Spencer Designs’ hallmark style is sophisticated with an emphasis on natural fibres, textural weaves and craft mills. The extra showroom space means historic silk weaving company, and Royal Warrant holder Gainsborough, has been added to the roster of brands on display.
Meanwhile Russell and Jordan at 2LG Studio have been busy too, working on their first interior design course, available through Create Academy.
Make Your Home Lovely promises to bring you insights into 2LG’s creativity and vibrant aesthetic ‘encouraging you to be unapologetically bold in your design choices.’
