So glad I order two of these Shell chairs. They are just like the ones I saw in the store for $3900. The leather feels and looks great!

The Shell Chair is a deeply dynamic piece that inspires both style and a sense of adventure into modern living and lounge areas. Expertly built of molded walnut plywood and oak veneer, an outstanding genuine friendly leather padded seat and back finish this iconic lounge chair. Originally designed by Hans Wegner, our high-quality reproduction is true to the famous original, a classic piece that is suitable for a range of adaptations while also compelling enough to stand alone piece in any modern home.

Boasting a comfortable and stylish wooden frame carved entirely from American walnut, the Shell Chair strongest feature is its cushioned seat upholstered in fine, black leather. This leather upholstery is waterproof and doesn’t require any time-consuming maintenance or strong cleaning agents, making it easy to wipe away spills and dirt with only a damp cloth. The padded seat cushions and reclined angle make the Shell Chair supremely comfortable to sit in while the top-grain leather upholstery makes it even more sumptuous. The leather cushioned seat is cradled in a plywood frame molded in a soothing curve and dimension to create a soft contour that tempts anyone to relax. This distinctive curvature puts the sitter in a unique position specifically designed to achieve a truly comforting experience.

Whether creating the perfect perch for you or helping finish your mid-century modern home’s style, the Shell Chair is a great way to create an attractive and comfortable accent in any room. Though Hans Wegner’s original design wasn’t very popular, this iconic piece later became a classic of mid-century furniture design. With the floating lightness that inspires this wing-shape and arching curves, our Shell Chair replica is a truly faithful embodiment of Wegner’s vision.

    Adorable, chic, and VERY very mid-century
    Initially, it had some sound but fixed it with a little bit of lubricant. A very cute chair

    This Shell Chair is honestly one of the best mid-century accent chairs I’ve ever seen. I bought 2 of these and I can tell their quality is amazing. They are solid and reliable. The wood is also of great quality and the seat is so comfortable. I recommend giving this Shell Chair a try.

    I’d been in the market looking for a Shell Chair like this one for quite some time before I came across this stunning Shell Chair. The assembly was quick and easy and it only took like 20 minutes or just on my own. You wouldn’t believe the quality of the chair judging by the price, but it is amazing! Even my wife was impressed at the build quality for the price and she’s always picky about these sorts of things, being an interior designer. We liked it so much we ordered a second one!
