The Cark Hansen CH20 Elbow Chair was designed by Hans J.Wegner in 1956 but not actually put into production by Carl Hansen & Son until 2005. Elbow is a compact dining chair that can also be stacked. The lower back support and horizontal seat also make the chair suitable for working at a table or desk. Made from Danish oak or beech in a variety of finishes, the Elbow Chair has an upholstered seat in various fabrics grades and leather options.

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
White Oil - Same as oil with grain and structure visible with a light tinge.

For further information on fabric and leather grades please see the Carl Hansen Fabrics Page
