CH46 Armchair Soaped Oak & Natural Papercord Seat



Expertly manufactured by master craftspeople at Carl Hansen & Søn, this soaped oak edition of the CH46 Armchair is a clean-lined masterpiece of Danish furniture design history with a natural hand-woven paper cord seat.

Originally designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1965, the CH46 Armchair has been treated with wood soap to enhance and lighten the grain while showcasing a simple, functional structure that is as beautiful to behold as it is comfortable to sit in.

Crafted with two gently curved lines of oak that constitute the backrest, the lightweight CH46 Armchair allows for freedom of movement and superior comfort, making it an ideal design for both relaxation and dining spaces.

Simple and thoughtfully made, the design references its influence of Shaker furniture principles, integrated with Wegner’s own inimitable touches: gently rounded edges and curved arms for a light appearance, enhanced back support and the Carl Hansen & Søn signature hand-woven paper cord seat that appears both sturdy and delicate all at once.

The CH46 Armchair in a soaped oak finish is an excellent example of iconic Danish designer Hans J. Wegner’s constant striving towards organic simplicity in his work and his desire to create sculptural beauty, comfort and outstanding stability.
