These chairs are beautiful and so well-made! The color and texture fits my living room perfectly couldn’t recommend them enough

Remarkably true to the original

Not much else to say - side by side with an original version, I can barely tell the difference, except for the newness vs patina and the different wood (I chose ash but I think the original is oak).

I have several MCM dining chairs and this one is the sturdiest - my favorite is the Hvidt with the curved back, but they're expensive, hard to find, and kind of delicate. This chair looks good, is well-made and is sturdy enough for your largest guests to not cause you anxiety when they sit in it.

I bought at the $209 price and that's a real bargain. They came well-packaged and in perfect condition.

These are not the greatest pics, but in case it's helpful, the darker wood chair is the original and the light one is the new Inmod version.
Extremely close (near identical) to the original. None I can find.

Decent comfort. They could stand to use cushions but I'd rather not take away from the woven look. I give them 4 stars because of it.

Review for Hans Wegner CH23 Side Chair
January 26, 2022
These chairs are a shining example of the type of furniture sold here. They call many of the mid-century modern classics high-quality reproductions and at first, I was skeptical. After reading over other reviews and (incessantly) inquiring with customer service about their knowledge regarding mid-century modern classics, I finally bought a set for myself. I am thoroughly impressed. Some might call me an elitist, even a snob, to some degree, but I think it takes a keen sense of style and understanding of the importance of these world renowned designs to gain the full scope of how important they are to history and culture, especially in the United States.

I am extremely pleased and overwhelmed with gratitude for having come across this site, and not frivolously purchasing rip off replicas from a lesser store, which may had more budget friendly alternatives or have been comparable in price. If you are anything like myself, I highly recommend these Hans Wegner CH23 chairs.

Great! The cord seats are stronger than my old rattan ones, their style is similar though. The rattan frayed and they got super shabby after a few years. There's no way these are going to wear out as easily.

March 5, 2020
The build quality of this chair is very good. If the finish was better, I would have given them 5 stars. But, the finish quality is nonexistent. I ordered the black "painted" chairs with natural seat. I asked customer service if there was a finish on them because they look very matte in the photos online, and I was assured they were nicely finished. Well, that is not the case. And they are not painted, they have a minimal black matte stain on them that scratches easily. So I have spent many hours varnishing these chairs so that they will hold up under use. They look beautiful NOW. All the vendor had to do was use a varnish with a stain in it. For $300 per chair, the customer should not have to spend extra time prepping them so that they don't show every fingerprint and scratch down to the bare wood. See the before and after photos.

They are really great! Excellent chairs even down to the packaging they came in, no nicks or chips in the wood or punctures in the cord. They look more expensive than they are.

not the most comfortable
February 24, 2020
Reproductions can be give or take. There are no problems with the way they look or even the quality but it was uncomfortable sitting in one after about 10 or 15 minutes. Maybe okay for dining chairs but I don't think I'll be getting any woven cord furniture again anytime soon.

SOO AWESOME! It amazes me how these chairs and from what I was reading while browsing...many others on the site were originally designed in the 40s, 50s and 60s...blown away! And, it feels good to have my dining room in order!

Big fan of Hans Wegner, obviously there is no way I am getting my hands on an original but I like this site for his reproductions. This was a another great find along with the hoop chair and shell chair. If you like designs by wegner, this is the site to come to - never disappoints, thanks again.

natural vs black seat
December 26, 2019
The natural woven cord seat is a better choice than the black, I ordered two in natural and two with black, I should have went with all natural

Happy Customer
March 1, 2018
The customer service was outstanding. I was kept informed through the entire process. I would suggest if you are ordering a product that has wood that you get samples of the wood before ordering. I had sent a picture of an existing chair I have to find of what kind of wood was in the chair and was told White Ash. I went ahead and ordered the chair based on that. In the meantime I had also ordered wood samples which came about a week later and realized that it was not White Ash at all. I immediately e-mailed InMod customer service who responded and said they would get back to me within a day fo see if my order could be changed and they did and my order was changed. The chairs arrived within the time frame given. These chairs are not original HansWagner chairs but close enough for my purposes. I could no be more pleased with my purchase and the service I received
customer service Made in China but appear to be well made

from New York, NY asked:
October 21, 2019
Is the natural cord used for the seat a different color on the black painted version of the chair than the wood stained version of the chair?  In the pictures, the cording on the black chair looks more yellow/gold hue, while the cording on the wood stained chairs are more beige / natural looking.  Do they use a different shade of cord for those two seats, or is it simply the color saturation in the photos?
1 Answer
The woven cord will be the same natural color for both the black painted version and the solid wood  options.

Hi there! Can you tell me if the seat is stain resistant??
1 Answer
There is a wax finish over the papercord to help resist staining, but because the seat is made of natural material, staining can still occur if not treated promptly. We recommend cleaning any spills immediately with a damp cloth.

If pairing this chair with a lightly modern grey table, would the optional oiled oak be a better wood To work with?
1 Answer
While we do not offer this chair in an oiled oak option, we would recommend the American White Oak / Natural finish to be a great option. We can also send swatches of our wood samples in the mail, free of charge, so you can compare the wood finishes with the table. To request swatches, you may email us at [email protected] with the finishes you would like to see, along with your mailing address.
