OW149-2 | COLONIAL SOFA
By Ole Wanscher
The OW149-2 Colonial Sofa was designed by Ole Wanscher in 1964. Manufactured in very small quantities, the design was virtually unknown until Carl Hansen & Søn launched the entire Colonial Series in 2015.
Background to the Colonial Series
The OW149 Colonial Chair was designed by Ole Wanscher in 1959. Wanscher wished to create furniture that paid tribute to classic conservative trends but also stood the test of time. He achieved this balance with the design of the Colonial Chair, and it remains his most famous design to this day. As a minimalist, Wanscher had a preference for the slim and refined. Yet despite its slender dimensions, the Colonial Chair is very stable. Its strength lying in the carefully designed bracing. The design’s sophisticated, slightly curved armrests rise to a point before taking a turn downward – a trademark Wanscher feature. The front and back legs are made of roundwood timber, with the back legs curving gently outward for added stability and a more refined result.Fifteen years later, Wanscher would design the matching Colonial Sofa and Colonial Coffee Table, creating the Colonial Series. The Colonial Chair is available with the matching OW149F footstool for added comfort. DELIVERY: Collection or local delivery (within 25 miles of Tetbury) is FREE.
