Great reasons to buy the Carl Hansen CH72 Lounge Sofa

  • In production for the first time since the 1970's this your chance to own a genuine Hans Wegner original design.
  • The CH72 offers an extremely comfortable sit in a sofa that is relatively compact. Great for when space is at a premium.
  • Carl Hansen & Son produce the CH72 at their own factory on the Danish island of Funen ensuring your sofa is made from only the finest materials and created by a team of expert craftsmen.

Why you'll love this designer sofa

The CH72 Lounge Sofa from Carl Hansen & Son was originally designed by renowned chair designer Hans J Wegner in 1952 and like all Wegner designs it unites great design with craftsmanship of the highest quality. The sofa itself is part of a set that also includes a CH71 Lounge Chair, both of which are characterised by relatively small dimensions, a slim, comfortable, fully upholstered frame and round, tapered legs in solid wood.

While Wegner was especially fond of wordwork, he also possessed an excellent understanding of upholstery technique. This is reflected in the CH72 design, with the complex design demanding exacting craftsmanship from the master cabinet makers and upholsterers at Carl Hansen & Son's Danish factory. The lounge sofa can be upholstered in an array of textiles, with the option to select different colors and textures for the main frame and the cushion. The legs and handles are available in oak and walnut with various finishes.

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.
