Carl Hansen & Søn Teams Up with Edelman Leather for a New Take on Old Favorites

Hans J. Wegner’s Wing Chair in Sueded Buffalo Bull from Edelman Leather.

Carl Hansen & Søn has teamed up with Edelman Leather to reinvent six iconic Hans J. Wegner chairs. With a variety of leather upholstery and wood finish options, designers now have a plethora of made-to-order options to outfit a space with bold new pieces—129 different permutations, to be exact. The limited-edition Carl Hansen & Søn X Edelman Leather collection targets the residential market, and will be exclusively released in North America.

“This collection features a versatile color palette informed by the creative abundance found in the color and texture of nature,” says Thomas Vagner, president of Carl Hansen & Søn Americas.
