The OW149 Colonial Chair, designed by Ole Wanscher for Carl Hansen, exudes refined grandeur through its unrivalled craftsmanship. Constructed for maximum comfort, its beauty radiates from the exquisite frame of simple interlocking Scandinavian lines which exhibit the depth and finish of the solid wood (oak or walnut). The gentle curvature of the back legs and prominent armrests promote the chair's unique character, which is extremely stable and personable. A high back rest of convex horizontal panels accommodates the upholstered back cushion and a hand woven cane seat is integrated into its broad stature.
The Colonial Chair is available in Carl Hansen leathers which are all suitable for both contract and domestic use. The leathers can be combined with a frame in soaped oak, oiled oak, lacquered oak, white oiled oak or oiled walnut.
Soap - The closest to raw wood; grain and structure are visible; light in colour
Oil - Grain and structure are visible; lighter than soap; creates lustre and brings out contrast in grain and structure. Darkens over time to a rich patina
Clear Lacquer- Grain & structure visible, darker than soap, glossy smooth finish which yellows over time.
White Oil - Same as oil with grain and structure visible with a light tinge.
