This Carl Hansen CH162 Sofa was designed by Hans J.Wegner in 1965. Manufactured by Carl Hansen & Son in Denmark this sofa is available as this two seater - the CH162 as well as a larger 3 seater, the CH163.

The CH162 Sofa, from the originally named 'Down Cushion Sets' sofa series, uses a combination of upholstered cushions filled with down. This was an innovative feature when Hans J. Wegner designed his modern living room in 1965 - rendering a fairly stringent design less formal. This sofa design is characterised by leg detail which has four straight sides at the base which 'fans' out towards the armrest, punctuated by a wooden plug which not only gives elegance but conceals a wooden screw which facilitates the work of the upholsterer.

The exposed timber frame detail is evident both from the front, side are rear elevations of the sofa and this is available in a number of finishes - white oiled oak, oiled oak, soaped oak and smoked oiled oak. It's also available in oiled walnut.It also comes in a large range of fabrics and leather options. For further information on fabric and leather grades please see the Carl Hansen Fabrics Page.

Wood Finishes
Soap - The closest to raw wood; grain and structure are visible; light in colour

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.
