The Wish Chair, designed in 1949 by Danish designer Hans Wegner, was originally inspired by classical portraits of Danish merchants sitting on Chinese Ming chairs. It became one of the most iconic Danish furniture designs of the 20th Century.
Also referred to as the 'Y' chair due to its Y-shaped back, the Wish Chair can be used as a dining or occasional chair, making it perfect for use in any living space.
Our reproduction style chair is a high quality replica and remains true to the original design. Available in a range of beautiful colours, it can fit in easily with any modern or traditional interior.
The name Wishbone & Hans J Wegner is only used to describe the characteristics of the goods made to the original design, and not as a trademark.
I’ve hankered after these for years. I finally decided to get two to go with my new dining table. They are gorgeous and actually a lot more comfortable than I anticipated.
Only negative is that there is some glue that has leaked from one of the joints on the arms. The chair is stable and I haven’t returned it as my kids commandeered the box shortly after delivery. It’s not a biggie but if I was a perfectionist I would’ve returned.
Delivery was quick and cost was reasonable.
