Carl Hansen OW149 Colonial Sofa

Designed by Ole Wanscher

£2905.00

£2469.25

The Carl Hansen Colonial Sofa was designed by Ole Wanscher in 1964 but was only ever manufactured in small quantities. Carl Hansen brought the Colonial sofa to life along with other designs in the range in 2015, giving the design the attention it rightly deserved. The gentle curvature of the exposed timber frame of the chair can be seen from behind and makes for a comfortable sit. It's available in a variety of wood and upholstered finishes for you to chose from.

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 a range of Carl Hansen leathers and iupholstery choices which are all suitable for both contract and domestic use. These can be combined with a frame in soaped oak, oiled oak, lacquered oak, white oiled oak or oiled walnut.

Wood Finishes
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.

Thank You Messages

I have rarely experienced such excellent quality advice, support and reliability. Your staff communicate effectively and helpfully. I am a truly satisfied customer. I love my String Shelving and I will not hesitate to return to Utility for my next purchase. Thank you!

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.
