About The Product

Boasting a comfortable and stylish wooden frame carved entirely from American walnut, the Shell Chair strongest feature is its cushioned seat upholstered in fine, black leather. This leather upholstery is waterproof and doesn’t require any time-consuming maintenance or strong cleaning agents, making it easy to wipe away spills and dirt with only a damp cloth. The padded seat cushions and reclined angle make the Shell Chair supremely comfortable to sit in while the top-grain leather upholstery makes it even more sumptuous. The leather cushioned seat is cradled in a plywood frame molded in a soothing curve and dimension to create a soft contour that tempts anyone to relax. This distinctive curvature puts the sitter in a unique position specifically designed to achieve a truly comforting experience.
Whether creating the perfect perch for you or helping finish your mid-century modern home’s style, the Shell Chair is a great way to create an attractive and comfortable accent in any room. Though Hans Wegner’s original design wasn’t very popular, this iconic piece later became a classic of mid-century furniture design. With the floating lightness that inspires this wing-shape and arching curves, our Shell Chair replica is a truly faithful embodiment of Wegner’s vision.
