Roundup: Papa Bear Arm Chairs by Hans Wegner

Also known as The Teddy Bear Chair, the iconic Hans Wegner Papa Bear Chair is coveted by many of our readers (and editors) and frequently makes the list of favorite lounge chairs. We've seen them pop up in the newly refurnished Marden House by Frank Lloyd Wright and in A Modern Duplex in the West Village. We've compiled a list of Apartment Therapy links where you can see this amazing chair...

Designed in 1951 by Hans J. Wegner, the Bear chair was originally sold by AP Stolen. The wooden frame was supplied by PP Mobler and they resumed production in 2001. (Does anyone know if they are still producing them?) We've seen originals on various auction and antique sites — but they never list the price. Sought after and highly collectible, we're certain these are out of our price range. We will have to enjoy pictures for now!
