Heirloom Worthy...

Experience the legacy and craftsmanship of over 100 years of Danish furniture design and production with Carl Hansen & Søn. Specializing in Danish Modern designs, Carl Hansen & Søn is the world's largest manufacturer of Hans J. Wegner's iconic 20th-century furniture pieces. From Wegner's celebrated CH24 Wishbone Chair to his versatile CH008 Coffee Table, there's design magic in store that deserves the care necessary to ensure it lasts for generations to come.

Natural Wood...

Your wooden chair, table, or case piece is crafted from a living, breathing, natural material, embodying the inherent beauty of subtle imperfections, growth marks, textures, and color variations that narrate a previous arboreal existence. At Carl Hansen & Søn, each furniture piece is meticulously assembled with careful consideration of color, shade, texture, and structure to ensure that it stands out as a unique and exquisite composition. Owing to the natural characteristics of wood, nuanced variations between individual pieces may occur.

General Care...

When caring for your wood furniture, it's best to use a gentle touch. Regularly clean it with a soft, damp cloth only as needed to help it age and develop a beautiful patina over time. Apart from wood tabletops, there is no need to re-treat wood furniture. Make sure to steer clear of harsh cleaning products when maintaining your distinctive Carl Hansen & Søn furniture.

Wood & Water...

Your wood furniture must be shielded from prolonged exposure to water and other liquids to prevent cracks, warping, discoloration, and overall damage. Promptly remove any liquid spills from your furniture using a soft, absorbent cloth to preserve its original integrity and beauty.

Wood & Humidity...

Solid wood furniture is sensitive to changes in humidity, which can lead to the wood expanding, contracting, cracking, or developing loose joints. It is not advisable to expose your Carl Hansen & Søn piece to significant fluctuations in humidity as this could compromise its integrity over time.

Wood & Heat...

Natural wood is sensitive to temperature changes, which can lead to issues as it expands and contracts. Therefore, it is important to avoid storing your Carl Hansen & Søn piece in unheated areas or near sources of high heat, such as radiators and woodstoves.

Wood & Sun...

The color of your wood furniture will naturally shift as it is exposed to sunlight. The most significant transformation in color typically occurs during the initial months of your furniture's lifespan. It is advisable to refrain from placing items such as throws, vases, and placemats on the wood surface for prolonged periods during this time, as this can lead to uneven changes in hue. Additionally, prolonged exposure to direct sunlight may cause your solid wood furniture to dry out undesirably.


Carl Hansen & Søn furniture comes with a manufacturer warranty of 5 years for indoor furniture and 2 years for outdoor furniture.
