New in the Showroom: Carl Hansen

Spring is here and blooming in the Pacific Northwest. Lush greens and cool blues are everywhere outside and inside the showroom. We have new colorful editions of the classic Wishbone chair by Hans Wegner for Carl Hansen. We also have the reissued CH825 Credenza also by Hans Wegner. Designed in 1958, it has been reissued on Wegner's 100th birthday. Carl Hansen used Wegner's original drawings to bring the beautiful and clean-lined credenza to life. It is not just a simple cabinet, it uses roller shutter doors which require double sides and rear panel. The roller shutter doors run on a track between the two facades and disappear when opened. Upon seeing the cabinet in person, this is not obvious and with the exquisite craftsmanship of Carl Hansen, opening the cabinet is seamless and like magic. Stop by the showroom to see in person today, happy Spring!

Event Images from Arne Jacobsen: Celebrating an Icon

Inform Interiors had the recent pleasure of hosting the Fritz Hansen North America team as well as Master Upholsterer Hans Thure Mannerhagen from the factory in Denmark. Adrian Pollack presented a wonderful seminar about Arne Jacobsen's life and work for Fritz Hansen. This was followed by Hans finishing an Egg™ chair on site during the event. It was truly an eye opening experience to see the amount of craftsmanship that goes into each piece. Seeing the craft behind the design elevates the product and company. Inform has the new limited edition 60th Anniversary Series 7™ chair available to see and purchase in the showroom. All photos are courtesy of Andrea Auge, thank you!
