While perusing the internet looking at chair designs I found a great example of a Wegner design chair at the Danish Design Store. The chair is not original, but its made by the same manufacture Carl Hansen and Son who I think I've read some where that they hired Wegner (the "W" in Wegner sounds like a "V") after World War 2 as a designer and maker. This is one of Wegner's designs and Carl Hansen and Son is still making the chair today, as a limited edition. I love Danish designs. I love them for many reasons, firstly they are fluid, sculpted, and the design makes great use of the inherent beauty of the wood species being used. And I love the designs because when I look at any of the Danish Modern designs, I say to myself, "Hey, I can do that!". Unlike furniture of the Baroque period or Queen Anne and other styles that were graced with extravagance, I cannot do that nor do I fee like learning at this time. But with the Danish design, I can do that, and it's fun to view furnishings that you can connect with and understand the joinery and the process. Here are some other great links to the subject.
