    The reintroduced Colonial Sofa dates back to 1964 though few people know that Ole Wanscher actually designed this 2-seater Sofa at the time. The Colonial Sofa is part of the Colonial Series which also includes the classic Colonial Chair and Footrest and the newly released Colonial Coffee Table.The series clearly reflects Wanscher´s fondness for the delicate and refined as well as his fascination with furniture design from the 18th century England and bygone Colonial times. The Colonial Sofa comes with loose cushions and the seat moves freely in the frame, which features a cotton webbing base. Like the Colonial Chair, the Colonial sofa is available in mahogany, cherry, walnut and oak with either fabric or leather cushions. The OW149-2 is manufactured by Carl Hansen.

    Ole Wanscher
    Ole Wanscher (1903-1985), was born in Copenhagen in 1903 and was an architect and professor of architecture with furniture designs as his specialty. He came to shape Danish furniture, both as an active designer and as a master teacher. His furniture designs are now considered to be modern classics - sophisticated and functional with an exquisite attention to detail.

    Ole Wanscher created his best known products primarily in the period between the late forties and early sixties. He took great interest in industrially produced high quality furniture and designed serveral pieces with thiss particular aspect in mind. It was the familiar philosophy of 'design for everyone'. However, his finest work was made in close collaboration with reowned master cabinetmakers.
