Carl Hansen and Son’s Wishbone chair, named after its delicate Y-shaped backrest, has been beloved by furniture buffs and design aficionados for decades. Created in 1949 by Danish furniture maker Hans J. Wegner, the chair’s simple design—which only uses sustainably sourced hardwood and paper cord—is an ode to the Danish Modern movement of the mid-century. To mark more than a half-century of production, the company is now selling the famous seat in 25 bold shades, including fire-engine red, deep purple and Easter-egg blue. Fans of the look can go for a monochromatic seating plan, or snap up the entire rainbow-hued range for an ultra-playful dining experience. $660 each
