Final Piece of the Puzzle – Hans J. Wegner CH23 Dining Chair is here!

Utility recently visited the beautiful city of Stockholm, Sweden. The colourful streets of Gamla Stan and delightful 'Fika' may have been among our highlights of Stockholm Design week but the standout news from our time at Stockholm Furniture Fair had to be the relaunch of Hans J Wegner's CH23 Dining Chair from Carl Hansen & Son.

2016 saw the launch of the CH22 Lounge Chair and so the relaunch of the CH23 completes the set of 4 chairs designed by Wegner for the iconic Danish brand.

A best seller in the years after its design, the CH23 is back in production and available to buy online at Utility Design. The simple dining chair features a cross cover-cap detail where the back meets the frame. This detailing can also be rendered in a contrasting wood for those who feel the matching wood option is a little too understated.

For anyone familiar with the Wishbone Chair from the Wegner series will know of the great craftsmanship that goes into the woven seat. The seat of the CH23 is double woven in a process that takes trained craftsmen 1 1/2 hours to complete by hand. The result is a seat that can last as long as 50 years without further weaving.

As always, we're among the first retailers in the UK to offer the Carl Hansen CH23 online. Pick yours up here today.

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

Excellent customer service and immediate response to enquiry (live chat). Very happy every time used Utility both online and on high street.

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
