Night falls over the jungle. Through the canopy of trees the full moon glows bright in the sky, casting just enough light for our hunting party. Tread softly, keep a keen eye, and join me as we stalk our prey: that most graceful of creatures, the Wishbone Chair.
First released into the wild by Hans J. Wegner in 1949, the Wishbone Chair is recognized by its spry physiognomy and quiet temperament. With curved hind legs and an arched, sloping back, the Wishbone (or CH 24 as it is properly known) is a hardy and versatile animal and can be found in diverse habitats.
Although a modern setting is most common for the Wishbone, its clean shape and neutral hide lend it well to all manner of situations. For example, It mixes equally well with stark metal or traditional column tables.
A certain tribal elegance inherent to the Wishbone is easily heightened with the appropriate small accessories; materials with an organic feel such as wood or stone make appropriate partners for this earthy beast.
The Wishbone is frequently a social creature. It happily exists as one of a pair or a large group (seen here beneath stacks of roughly woven blankets---a common camouflage ploy for this species).
However the Wishbone can also survive in solitude, and has been known to engage in self-exile from the pack. Naturalists have yet to come to a conclusion on the motivations behind this behaviour.
Though the blonde-coated variety accounts for the majority of the Wishbone population, black-coated specimens do exist and are highly valued for their stark, spare lines.
Very rare indeed is the Blue Legged Wishbone. It's not for everyone, perhaps, but the most enthusiastic of Wishbone fanatics have been known to go to considerable lengths to acquire such a prized specimen.
