Our Dining Area With New 'Soft Blue' Wishbone Chairs!

It's been a while since I shared a snapshot of my own home - in fact I think this is the first time this year! So, I thought I'd complete the blog week by sharing some pictures of my dining area that I took in collaboration with Carl Hansen & Søn along with interior designer Helen Sturesson

I'm sure you instantly recognise these chairs as the CH24 Wishbone Chair- a true Scandinavian design classic. Except with a twist; Carl Hansen & Søn recently launched this 'Soft Blue' version, which is simply divine!

It was so lovely to see the table all dressed up and circled with these iconic beauties. Our dining area has been the hub of the home over the past year and a place for crazy family dinners, homework, my office - and even maths lessons (Per set-up a white board against the back wall and taught his sixth form college students crazy formulas I'd never have the hope of solving!). Never a dull moment in the Brantmark family! 

I was so happy to see that it can still scrub up well when required! 

At 3 days Of Design I visited the Carl Hansen & Søn showroom in Copenhagen (a must if you're ever in town) and watched a craftsman weave the seat of a wishbone chair (it takes around one hour, using 120 metres of cord!). It was so cool to see the guy in action, and a great reminder that these chairs are mostly handcrafted. 

I hope you enjoyed this little peek inside my home - and my shots of Carl Hansen & Søn's latest offering (more info here). 

I wish I could have kept the entire set, but alas, I reluctantly (and diligently) sent them back over the bridge - baaaah! At least I've got these pics to prove that these beauties were in my possession! 

This evening our dining room is back to its normal self - and ready for a Friday take-away! So rock 'n' roll these days, right? What's your Friday tradition (right now)? 

I'm hoping we can get out on the snow and ice this weekend. 

I hope you have some fun outdoor plans for the weekend too!

Wishing you all a wonderful couple of days - see you Monday!  


PS Carl Hansen & Søn didn't sponsor this blog post (it was a social media collaboration only) - I just thought it would be fun to share the shots with you! 


  1. Lovely!
    Fajita Friday every Friday for us. :)
    Monday is a designated holiday in Canada, Family Day! It's nice to have a long weekend in February. We'll be enjoying the snow (and the polar vortex apparently...) too.

    1. Snow, polar vortex... it sounds like the perfect family day, I hope you have a wonderful time! PS loving the idea of fajita Friday, will put it out there to the Brantmark massive!

  2. I love that tablecloth!!!! Simple but with a subtle style. Any idea who makes that?


    1. Thanks Patrick, it's an old one - but you could try Etsy, I've seen a few like this.

  3. I so love those builtins. I love when I see that in bedrooms, wardrobes around a bed, it feels so welcoming and snug-like, but I also really like it in your dining area. I would fight anybody for that bench seat. The chairs go so well with everything, classic with a modern twist.

    1. Thank you! We were lucky ad they were already there when we moved in. I was tempted to rip them out at one point and then panicked as knew there'd be stuff everywhere. This family needs a load of storage!

    1. Thank you Mia! Best of luck with your kitchen remodel!

  5. What a beautiful dining room. So peaceful and serene. Love the recamier. Wish I could do that in our room but unfortunately too small. Have a lovely weekend and happy Valentine's day💞💞

  6. This is an excellent interior solution. Look very pleasant and cousy.

  7. No Friday ritual here, but I’m also in Canada so family day, today. My daughter who lives nearby for school will be home So it will just be our immediate family of four, for a day of games, cards, puzzles and finger foods while we watch the snow fall.
    I love your dining space- those tones are my love language and the chairs are so beautiful. I am having a moment, a rather long moment, with deep blue tones. They can act almost like a neutral but with more interest like an accent colour. They are amazing!
    Hope you had a great weekend.

    1. Sounds like a perfect day to me! I really love the idea of 'family day' I haven't heard about it before. Is it the same day every year? PS with you on the deep blues - beautiful accent colour!
