Chair of the Month – Hans Wegner’s Papa Bear Chair

FINDS - Chair of the Month - Hans Wegner Pap Bear Chair

This chair is my absolute favorite chair of all time!  Not only is it a well-constructed classic that would fit into any modern interior today, but it has gorgeous lines that lend a unique shape to the chair.  I love the way the arms are separated from the base of the chair leaving the negative space to further emphasize the reach of the big “bear paw” arms of this chair.  The wood detail on the arms is just another element that makes this specific chair so unique.  The “Papa Bear” Chair was originally designed in 1951 for AP Stolen and named AP-19 chair and produced until 1969.  The chair was re-launched in 2003, but you can also find many reproductions of this.  Nothing will be as amazing as owning the original though.
