Carl Hansen OW149 Colonial Chair - Black Edition

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 Black Edition of the Colonial Chair comes in a full black colourway with painted black oak legs and and black Thor leather. The original version of the OW149 Colonial Chair, also at Utility, is available in a wider range of Carl Hansen leathers nd frames. 

Fabric Description :
Thor Leather - This semi-aniline leather has a natural grain and its occasional slight scars and markings add to its individuality. Coated with a protective layer to increase practicality and withstand stains and fading, this leather will wear slightly over time adding to it's appearance.


The Carl Hansen & Son Black Editions campaign has reinvented some of their most popular chairs in an all black colour way. They teamed up with Mourne Textiles who created a series of fabrics in wool and leather for the series. The Black Editions campaign ends on December 21st 2016, so make sure you get your hands on a piece of iconic furniture at a great price whilst you can!
