Why you'll love this classic wooden armchair

The J42 chair from Hay is a reproduction of a classic furniture design from the 1960's. The original designer, Børge Mogensen, was lead designer at FDB (Fællesforeningen for Danmarks Brugsforeninger) which was a Danish Consumers Co-operative. Mogensen led a program to renew Danish furniture culture and create modern, functional and useful furniture that would be affordable for all social classes. From this a range of chairs and tables were born.

The J42 armchair features precise proportions and is constructed using simple vertical and horizontal lines that give the chair a simple and uncomplicated design. The curved spindels and angular armrests create a chair that provides lasting comfort and timeless appeal. Available in a range of oiled, matt or lacquered oak finishes to suit your style.

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 :-)

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.
