Hans Jorgensen Wegner, (April 2, 1914 - January 26, 2007), was a world renowned Danish furniture designer. His high quality and thoughtful work, along with a concerted effort from several of his manufacturers, contributed to the international popularity of mid-century Danish design. His style is often described as Organic Functionality, a modernist school with emphasis on functionality. This school of thought arose primarily in Scandinavian countries with contributions by Poul Henningsen, Alvar Aalto, and Arne Jacobsen. In his lifetime he designed over 500 different chairs, over 100 of which were put into mass production and many of which have become recognizable design icons.
Wegner worked for some time for Arne Jacobsen, a successful Danish designer. Wegner was in charge of the furniture in the Aarhus Municipal Hall, which Jacobsen designed. After some years under Jacobsen, Wegner started his own company. Along with fellow architect Brge Mogensen, he designed furniture for FDB (a Danish chain of grocery stores), spearheaded by Erik Kold" who founded an organization of Danish furniture makers that launched Danish design abroad.
In his later years Wegner became more attached to PP Mobler (which produces many of pieces originally designed for Johannes Hansen) and for whom he designed several chairs late in his life. He remained active throughout his life. An example of his later work is the"Hoop Chair", originally designed in 1965 with a steel tube base and finally put into production made entirely in wood in 1985 (for PP Mobler). Wegner retired from public life only in the last decade of his life.

Super easy delivery- amazing chairs, would purchase again- very well made. Looks great
Beautiful chairs! Ordered to Montreal and the the process was excellent. Chairs are exactly as pictured, so happy with my purchase.
These are stunning in person! Good quality and each one is unique. It's hard to find mid-range wishbone chairs in Canada (Structube's are a good price, but the quality is NOT great ). I cannot recommend these enough! Good product and great company.
We are using it as a side chair for an extra dinner guest. The neutral color and comfortable seat should make it great for a lengthy conversation over a good dinner.
These chairs are fantastic. They shipped fully assembled and without a scratch. They are great quality, well made, and looked how I hoped they would. For the price, compared to other places, I am blown away. I will be purchasing from eternity modern again.
I've always loved the wishbone chair. Danish design (check my Morso behind the table!) has been a favorite ever since I had to research and make a presentation on this subject matter in Interior Design year 1 - Presentations/Public Speaking. These classics are nicely crafted. One would pay much more at DWR (never within reach I say!). Good proportions, sturdy and comfortable. I say buy!
Remember dinner parties?! (...Written during a pandemic lockdown.) We ordered 6 of these Wishbone chairs, and couldn’t be happier. They are super comfortable - inviting guests to linger at the table long after the meal. Just waiting for the guests to come back. ?
