The Wishbone Chair by Hans Wegner

Someone asked me the other day what chair I felt had stood the test of time. I asked what they meant by “stood the test of time”? Does time get tested? In my opinion, brilliant design never goes out of style, that’s why it is referred to as classic. The Wishbone Chair is timeless, the clean lines allow it to be used in a transitional way in terms of styles of decor. I would love to have a few of these chairs in my foyer, they provide a simple touch without out taking away from the beauty of the design.




Sometimes I find straight chairs can look a bit awkward {at times} amongst a round table. Not with the Wishbone though, they are in my opinion the perfect chair for a round table. Look at how in the photo below they create a seamless and inviting look.
