Coalesse Adds New Designs to the Carl Hansen & Son Collection

Fans of our Carl Hansen & Son portfolio will find more to love this year, as Coalesse introduces three additional products by renowned Danish designer Hans J. Wegner, plus five products from designers new to our line. 


These eight new Carl Hansen & Son Collection products—five chairs, a pair of stools, a footstool and a tray table—expand the options available to designers and their corporate clients, whether they’re looking for mid-century Danish classics or recent designs. 

Let’s explore the new offerings:

Embrace Chair | CHE005 — Released by the Austrian design trio EOOS in 2015, this comfortable, sculptural armchair is a contemporary classic with a solid wooden frame supporting a soft, multidimensional upholstered cushion. 

Embrace Lounge Chair | CHE015 — Designed with a lower, wider seat and extra cushioning, the Embrace Lounge promotes relaxation and renewal. It debuted in 2016. 

Embrace Footstool | CHE016 — The third piece in the Embrace series, this wide upholstered footstool accompanies the Embrace Lounge Chair and can serve as an extra seat in a lounge or library.

CH23 Chair – First introduced in 1950 and reintroduced in 2017, Hans J. Wegner’s innovative CH23 dining chair features a solid oak frame (in four shades) with a double woven seat in natural or black. Clean contours and refined craftsmanship define this timeless beauty. 

​ ​

CH56 & CH58 Barstools— Combining solid wood, lush leather and stainless steel, these matching barstools from Hans J. Wegner are crafted for comfort and versatility. At nearly 30 inches high, the CH56 is the taller of the two stools. Its counter-height twin, the CH58, stands three inches shorter. Both stools, released in 1985, move easily between kitchen and café. 

​ ​

CH417 Tray Table — Designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1970, this versatile tray table unites a two-sided round wooden tray with a folding metal base. Refined, practical, classic. 

CHPK1 Chair — The PK1 chair by Danish designer Poul Kjaerholm pairs organic weaving materials with a dynamic steel frame, creating a lightweight, stackable dining chair with a modern aesthetic. An elegant icon from 1955. 

Cuba Chair | CHMG501 — This folding lounge chair from Danish designer Morten Gottler expertly balances form and function. Solid oak frame, tight cotton webbing, clean lines, complex simplicity, attention to detail—this comfortable chair has it all. 

These new products expand our Carl Hansen & Son Collection 22 designs. Together, they reflect Coalesse’s high regard for the culture of modern craft —with all the beauty, curiosity, mastery and innovation that entails. 

With this portfolio expansion, our partnership with Carl Hansen & Son, which began at our founding 10 years ago, continues to grow.
