This chair epitomizes our philosophy, in fact an alternative title could be "A Hans Wegner for Every Man" because many feel that Hans Wegner is unobtainable.  We never believed that!  We have his 10' drop leaf dining table, (another post)  two side chairs and our Papa Bear chair to prove it.   This is the before picture of our Papa Bear chair.  It had been recovered in what we call "Eddie Bauer plaid", which is fine, but not for this chair.   We paid $34.50 for it at St. Vincent de Paul.  For anyone that doesn't know....Hans Wegner is the most sought after mid-century designer of Danish Furniture.  This chair is vintage 1952.  Why not sell it?  Because we LOVE it!
