Saw this chair at a friend's house and thought, "Cool shape. Bet it's uncomfortable." It was not so. On sitting down, the CHO7 by Hans Wegner (aka The Shell Chair) turned out to be supremely comfortable with a soft leather padded seat and a shape that seems to support you all around. We could imagine gravitating towards this chair in order to read or go through mail. It's THAT comfortable...

Chosen by ATChicago as one of the three best Wegner chairs, now we're considering it for our own living room and hunting up prices. They've gone up a bit since we first posted and the manufacturer, Carl Hansen & Son, have a lock on the market. Our favorite right now is the deep red with the brown seat - pictured above - but the choices are really endless.

Below is a list of top sellers we know of. Prices are fairly consistent, but free shipping and tax will make a difference.

Room and Board
Retro Modern
Zeitgeist Modern
