My new favorite iconic chair is Hans J Wegner's Wishbone by Carl Hansen & Son. The light, sculptural chair demands perfect craftsmanship and is made of the best natural materials.

I have always admired the lines and the versatility of this chair but I began to crush harder, when in celebration of the chair's 60th Anniversary, Carl Hansen & Son released 12 new colors. I especially love the crisp white option for the seat color as opposed to the classic natural tone.

There are fans of Wegner that found the release of the shiny colors in bad taste, essentially ruining a timeless design. However, I think it just gives the chair a fun modern twist still clinging to its beautiful shape and structure. What do you think?

You could purchase these chairs  as well as the original colors at either Design Within Reach, Suite NY or Room and Board.
