Elegant simplicity and beautiful design
The clean, classic OW150 daybed designed by Ole Wanscher in 1963 features a single long cushion that appears to float above an angular, solid oak frame. It is, however, supported by a delicate yet strong cotton webbing. Hand-sewn buttons create a simple square pattern that highlights the daybed’s geometric form, while an optional bolster pillow enhances comfort and relaxation. The OW150 daybed clearly shows how Wanscher was intrigued and inspired by classic furniture design. He studied it wherever he went, incorporating the styles and elements he felt best merged functionality and aesthetics into his own work. His modern classics are still revered for their detail and his deep respect for materials.
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.
