The Shell Chair (CH07 Chair): A marvel of grace and beauty.

Team GFURN

Posted on March 11 2018

Designed in 1963 by Hans J. Wegner, the Shell Chair (also named the CH07 lounge chair) is one of the most iconic chairs made by the Danish designer. It blends grace and beauty and can be used in the living room or in a lounge area.

Although this chair, also known as the « Smiling Chair », stands on three legs, it is extremely stable and comfortable. The seat and back are made of form-pressed wood veneer. We can make this chair in different veneers: walnut veneer, white oak veneer, rosewood veneer or beech veneer with lacquer finish.

The seat and back are available upholstered in standard fabric, wool or leather.

Modern, Mid-Century, Scandinavian Furniture & Design Lighting

G*FURN Design Furniture specializes in modern, mid-century, scandinavian-inspired furniture and home décor including design lightings, poufs and rugs. Our roots are in Montreal but our inspiration comes from many countries, every one with its own unique style and craftsmanship. Our DNA is to source and order directly from factories. No middlemen involved. We want to connect manufacturers directly with our clients. Our vision has always been to provide high quality, affordable furniture and lightings.

Mid-Century | Style, Craftmanship and Quality as originals.

G*FURN began its journey with mid-century iconic reproductions. We have all seen these classic pieces of designers, including the Egg Chair and the Swan Chair from Arne Jacobsen, the Barcelona Chair from Mies van der Rohe, the classic Eames Lounge Chair from Charles & Ray Eames, the Marble Tulip Tables and the Tulip Series from Eero Saarinen, the Florence Knoll sofas from Florence Knoll and other classics from Hans J. Wegner, Philippe Starck, Charles Le Corbusier or Verner Panton. Our focus has always been on high-end reproductions. As these are iconic pieces, we have always wanted to reach the same level of old world craftmanship used by these designers to build these products. Our reproductions are faithful to the shapes, sizes and specifications of the originals, crafted by hand. Our Egg Chair for example is carefully hand stitched and takes one day to complete. Quality has always been our core belief. From pure aniline leather and cashmere wool to #304 stainless steel, we only use the finest quality materials and that’s why we stand out from our peers. Over the last years, we have seen a surge of companies trying to enter this market to offer low-grade inferior reproductions. We may not be the lowest in price, yet we source the highest quality materials, craft in the finer details, and deliver the highest value, dollar for dollar, by far..
