Fully Assembled Kennedy Armchair
Presidential Chair Kennedy Chair By Hans Wegner - Black
'The Round One' as Wegner referred to it with his usual provincial modesty, is one of the most famous Danish pieces of furniture - certainly the most distinctly Danish. In its own modest and simple way, it sums up the very essence of traditional Danish woodworking and design philosophy. And it is absolutely the most important work of Hans J. Wegner.
When John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon met in the first-ever, televised election debate in 1960, they sat in the Round Chair. It was chosen mainly for its comfort and genuine quality - made in Denmark and shipped to the USA to play an important role in this historic event. Eventually, the Americans came up with a new and more telling name for this chair. They called it 'The Chair'.
This contemporary furniture piece is suitable for any kitchen or dining room. It could alternatively be used as a dressing table chair in the bedroom. The Replica Hans Wegner round chair also can be mixed with the elbow dining chair to create a stunning affect.
The Kennedy chair is the piece of Hans Wegner furniture with the best-known story, as CBS bought this chair in 1960 for the legendary TV duel between Nixon and his rival Kennedy.The chair created so much interest that after the programme it was simply referred to as 'The Chair' by commentators and critics alike.
