Modern Classics: Arne Jacobsen's Egg Chair

Arne Jacobsen's Egg Chair is one of those pieces that manages to be retro cool, yet classic at the same time.  Originally designed in 1958 for the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen.  The Egg Chair is especially unique in its design, with organic curves and support, perfect for lounging around after a looong day at the office. In architect, David Mann's swank New York City loft, are a pair of gorgeous light gray Egg Chairs that complete the look of this fancy-schmancy reading room. In Bastad, Sweden, the Egg Chair fits in rather nicely with this sort of unassuming country cottage decor. And in an effort to appear more upscale, Mickey Ds...McDonald's outfitted some of their London restaurants with the Egg Chair.  You can read more about that in this New York Times article.  It's not everyday you get to eat a Big Mac like this: Designer Benjamin Dhong outfitted this Egg Chair in a gray cut velvet.  The result is soft and extremely sophisticated. Now I know what you're thinking...yes, yes, yes I DO have some beautiful reproductions of Arne Jacobsen's Egg Chair, so calm down. These are constructed of a fiberglass shell, padded with multi-density polyurethane foam and covered in soft crepe wool.  The base of the chair is constructed with aluminum legs, and plastic gliders, so that you get no floor scratches on your parquet wood flooring. Currently, I have these available in Red, Black, Dark Gray, Baby Blue, Orange and White, for only $849 each.  For more info, click here.
