The OW149-2 Colonial Sofa, designed by Ole Wanscher for Carl Hansen exudes the same refined grandeur through its unrivalled craftsmanship. Constructed for maximum comfort, its beauty radiates from the exquisite frame of simple interlocking Scandinavian lines, which exhibit the depth and finish of the solid wood. The gentle curvature of the back legs and prominent armrests promote its unique character, which is extremely stable and personable.

A high back rest of convex horizontal panels accommodate the upholstered back cushions as well as a hand woven cane seat integrated into its broad stature.

The Colonial Sofa is available in Carl Hansen leathers which are all suitable for both contract and domestic use. The leathers can be combined with a frame in soaped oak, oiled oak, lacqquered oak, white oiled oak or oiled walnut.

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

Fabric Description :
Loke Leather - Buffed, embossed and coated with a protective finish to create a very durable leather. With its uniform texture, this leather offers a practical choice with minimal change in appearance over time.
Thor Leather - This semi-aniline leather has a natural grain and its occasional slight scars and markings add to its individuality. Coated with a protective layer to increase practicality and withstand stains and fading, this leather will wear slightly over time adding to it's appearance.
Sif Leather - A full grain pure analine leather with a naked and natural surface
