How long do Carl Hansen’s CH72 Sofas last?
The lifespan of the CH72 Loveseat Sofa is upwards of 40 years, potentially much longer if cared for correctly. That said, it may need reupholstering after 10-15 years (based on fabric with a Martindale score of 50,000). Luckily almost all the fabric options from Kvadrat to Gabriel offer close to 100,000 Martindale meaning they are very long-lasting.
How do I look after the fabric on my Wegner CH72 Two Seat Sofa?
To keep your CH72 Sofa clean and dust-free carefully vacuum the fabric with a soft brush attachment from time to time (every couple of weeks). These small maintenance acts will meaningfully extend your sofas fabric's lifespan. For spillages aim to soak up any foreign liquid quickly using a soft cloth. After this, gently clean with a soft damp cloth and natural, transparent soap solution. Do not use any harsh chemicals on your upholstery and if in doubt contact us or a local upholstery specialist.
Is the CH72 Sofa on trend?
Designed and first put into production in 1952, the CH72 demonstrates all the trademarks of its iconic designer Hans Wegner. Known as the “Master of Chairs” Wegner’s pieces are well-known to stay timeless. With a petite and sculptural shape and subtle detailing it’s unlikely the CH72 will ever go out of fashion. High-quality craftsmanship, understated design and simple, natural materials don’t conform to the whims of trends – these characteristics are eternally well-regarded.
How do I choose a small sofa/loveseat?
Designed and first put into production in 1952, the CH72 demonstrates all the trademarks of its iconic designer Hans Wegner. Known as the “Master of Chairs” Wegner’s pieces are well-known to stay timeless. With a petite and sculptural shape and subtle detailing, it’s unlikely the CH72 will ever go out of fashion. Respect for high-quality materials and craftsmanship will never go away. It stands to reason then, that the understated design and use of natural materials in Wegner's CH72 Sofa also will never conform to the whims of trends.
How do I identify my Hans Wegner CH72 Chair?
The CH72 Sofa’s exhibits excellence in all its components, from its wooden armrests and legs to its beautiful upholstery. The wood and upholstery should be without any glaring imperfections. The inside backrest features two spotless, traditional upholstery seams near each armrest on either side. Not only this but underneath the CH72, there will be a Carl Hansen serial number and a Hans J. Wegner signature etched onto a metal plate. These features are all unlike cheap replicas from Indonesia, China and other countries well-known for their assaults on original designs.
Hans Wegner is a Danish design icon famous for his collaborations with Carl Hansen and the CH24 Wishbone Chair. Alongside this he is responsible for the CH07 Shell Chair, the CH25 Lounge Chair, and many more. Wegner is a meticulous craftsman and his furniture is a functional, stylish, and timeless.

Beautiful and high quality furniture!
Excellent delivery and customer services, even during difficult times like Covid 19.
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.
Beautiful item arrived earlier than indicated.
Customer service informed me of this & then followed up after delivery to make sure it arrived safely.
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.
First class service.
The Olson Baker team continue to deliver outstanding advice and product knowledge.
Excellent product but more importantly during these difficult times was the customer service level and great delivery team ....
