Some may say Hans Wegner’s Papa Bear Chair is too big. Certainly noone would say that it’s too small. And for us… this chair is just right!
Also known as the ‘Teddybear chair’, the Papa Bear remains one of Hans J Wegner’s most beloved designs. This iconic Danish modern piece even has a matching ottoman.
Wegner would design over 500 chairs during his lifetime. Over 100 went into production. His prolific output earned him the title “Master of the chair”. These highly sought after pieces were originally designed in 1951 and manufactured by A.P. Stolen. Today they are made and sold by Modernica.
