Slung with high quality, comfortable, hand-stitched leather, this chair will make a statement in any room.
This mid-century Modern Danish chair design won two awards from the Oregon Chapter of the International Interior Design Association’s 2017 Design Excellence Awards.

Justin Nelson started Fernweh Woodworking, a small-batch furniture design / production studio located in Bend, OR, in 2015. He calls his role “Designer/Craftsman” and cherishes both the woodworking and design elements of the company. A former Marine Officer, Justin has a bachelor’s degree in business from Purdue University, and is a self-taught woodworker. He is inspired by the design philosophy and work ethic of Sam Maloof, and admires the legacy and designs of Hans Wegner and the Eames, among many others.
“I’m just a baby woodworker and designer, and to some extent I hope to always feel that way; no matter how much you learn, you should always be overwhelmed and excited by the oceans of things yet to be discovered. I hope to do my small part to keep the craft of woodworking not only alive, but fresh.”
