The CH163 sofas are individually handmade over a frame of solid beech wood and have upholstered, reversible cushions. The cushions consist of a foam core surrounded by European down and cold foamer. The solid wooden legs are angled giving it a great pitch. CH163 is upholstered in fabric or leather on request.

British fashion designer Paul Smith has applied his iconic striped fabrics to a selection of furniture by legendary Danish designer Hans J. Wegner, which will be presented in Milan next month.

To celebrate the hundredth anniversary of the birth of renowned Danish designer Hans J. Wegner, Paul Smith and Maharam are collaborating with Carl Hansen & Søn – the world’s largest manufacturer of furniture designed by Hans J. Wegner – on a limited edition collection of some of Wegner’s most iconic works.

The Big Stripe and Stripes fabrics designed by Smith for American textile brand Maharam were used to upholster products including the Shell Chair, Wing Chair and Wishbone Chair, which were created by the Danish Modernist designer between the late 1940s and the 1960s.

Smith’s striped fabrics are woven from worsted wool in a range of colors and the two designs offer different densities of pattern. The Stripes pattern was designed in 2006, while the Big Stripe design launched last year.
