Carl Hansen & Søn is a partner we carefully selected to help furnish the Hudson Woods model house. With years of heritage and tradition their, Carl Hansen is known for manufacturing several iconic items many designed by Hans Wagner, including the Wishbone dining chair, Elbow dining chair and Shell lounge chair. You can catch up on a bit of the Carl Hansen legacy in one of our first journal posts, here. We worked with our friends at Hundred Mile in Rhinebeck, who is a local distributor of Carl Hansen items, to source some of these pieces.
For the model house we selected a number of items including the Colonial Chair designed by Ole Wanscher in 1949. The chair is located in the lower level den and you can learn more about the production of the chair in Carl Hanen’s video. Another item we sourced from Carl Hansen is the Hans J. Wegner CH163 Sofa designed in 1965. We selected the black leather option which is a prominent feature when entering the great room of the model house.
