Use a dampened, soft, non-abrasive, lint-free colourless cloth to wipe the entire surface of your wood, moving in the direction of the grain.
Dry the wood using a second non-abrasive cloth. Remember to wipe in the direction of the wood grain.
You do not need to polish the wood as part of your regular maintenance, but polishing can restore the wood’s natural shine if it begins to look dull.
Never use wax-based polish or ammonia-based cleaning products on your corrosive liquid residue.

  1. Is the CH24 Wishbone Chair comfortable?
  2. The CH24 Wishbone Chair offers excellent back support, with its curving backrest and wishbone-shaped back allowing room for the spine. Its handwoven paper cord seat allows for comfortable sitting, with multiple cross-struts making the structure sturdy and robust.
  3. Do wishbone chairs fit under table?
  4. Not fully, the front of the armrest may just squeeze under your dining table. Maybe half of the Wishbone will tuck under your dining table. That said, there is no doubt that the first 15-16cm of the chair will fit under the table. However, once the table meets the armrests, it will depend on the vertical space under your table. The Wishbone's armrests measure 70cm high at the front. They then slope up to a total 76cm. Table tops are typically 72 cm high.
  5. What is the CH24 Wishbone Chair made from?
  6. The CH24 Wishbone Chair comes in a wide range of materials and finishes, including Beech, Oak, Walnut, Mahogany and more. Its intricate production process uses mortise and tenon joints, steam-bent wood and over 100 meters of hand-woven papercord.
  7. How long do CH24 Wishone Chair's last?
  8. The life expectancy of the CH24 Wishbone Chair is upwards of 50 years, potentially much longer if cared for correctly. With a production process involving over 100 steps, Carl Hansen's artisan craftsmen ensure each piece is of the highest standard.
  9. How do I Identify a real CH24 Wishbone Chair?
  10. The papercord seat should be tight and neat, with no gaps visible. The legs and backrest should be one solid piece with no visible joints. On the underside of the chair, there should be a plaque with the serial number and signature of Hans J. Wegner.

        Couldn't have been better and will certainly buy from the company again.

        Fantastic service, Jonathan was extremely helpful through my purchase.

        Definitely recommend and would use again.

        Thanks! Angela

        Excellent product but more importantly during these difficult times was the customer service level and great delivery team ....

        take note Heal’s as you’ve not got a clue how to service customers

        Great range of products.

        Purchased a beautiful rug from here and had a smooth overall buying experience.

        It has been an absolute pleasure buying a lovely piece of furniture from Olsen + Baker. Russell has been a delight to deal with, keeping me informed at every step of the delivery, even down to which colour would fit with my decor - nothing was too much.

        I can’t recommend highly enough.

        First class service.

        The Olson Baker team continue to deliver outstanding advice and product knowledge.

        Beautiful item arrived earlier than indicated.

        Customer service informed me of this & then followed up after delivery to make sure it arrived safely.

        Highly recommend!

        Beautiful and high quality furniture!

        Excellent delivery and customer services, even during difficult times like Covid 19.

        Lovely website, great communication, fast delivery and they came in at a price other shops couldn't compete with on the chair I was after.

        Easily recommended.

        Olson + Bakers service and products have been outstanding. I can't recommend Jonathan at Olson + Baker enough.

        He is an absolute star and has gone out of his way to provide superb service.

        Fantastic customer service throughout the ordering process.

        Great products - really pleased with my order.

        So glad I came across Olson & Baker for my home accessories that I would not find elsewhere on the High Street.

        The service is superb and the website is so intuitive! 10 out of 10! :D Lee

        Really excellent customer service. Can not recommend this company highly enough - the products are high quality and their communication with the customer is first class. Jonathon always responded promptly to any queries and was very helpful.

        I would definitely buy from them again.

        Olson + Baker were wonderful to deal with.

        We purchased our item (a beautiful coat hook) but had to delay delivery due to a trip overseas.

        We weren't dealing with an automated system, just real people who cared enough to help.

        Recently purchased a Nordic Style candle holder, which I had admired at a recent stay at a holiday home in Norfolk.  Product arrived very quickly. Contact via email from Jonathan. Excellent customer service and a gorgeous product too.

        Thank you Jonathan and all at Olson and Baker.

        Very good service, great communication and arrived very promptly

        Thank you

        Bought some lovely wine glasses as a gift, quick delivery, great customer service and high quality product.

        Would definitely buy from Olson and Baker again.
