The Carl Hansen CH24 Wishbone Chair, CH24 or 'Y' Chair is a dining chair designed by Hans J.Wegner in 1950. Manufactured by Carl Hansen & Son in Denmark the Wishbone Chair is every inch the Danish design classic and the company's best ever selling design. This original chair acquired its name due to the 'Y' wishbone shaped back and with its measured use of materials is a light, sculptural dining chair which offers good back support and a comfortable sitting position.

Available in Danish hardwoods (oak, beech and ash) as well North American hardwood (walnut) the Wishbone Chair comes in a variety of finishes (soaped, oiled or lacquered) with a seat in hand-woven paper cord (unbleached/natural or black).

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.

The Wishbone Chair is also available in a painted finish
