The Wishbone Chair, CH24 or 'Y' Chair was 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.

The Wishbone or Y Chair acquired its name due to the 'Y' 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 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
