The visual appeal of the chair is enhanced by the seat and back, which are constructed of woven rope in a distinctive, special pattern.
The rope comes in different colors to match a specific decor and the most common wood used seems to be a more or less natural oak. These chairs are not bulky or terribly heavy so they are a pleasure to use and give much flexibility to a room. They are exceptionally durable for fine design armchairs, and even though the Wegner chair is rather expensive, you get tremendous value.
