Factors to Consider When Choosing an Egg Chair

In furniture, the egg chair is an undeniable asset in terms of decoration and comfort.

The egg chair was originally an original idea, created in 1958 by Danish designer Arne Jacobsen for the design of the lobby and reception areas of the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. Marking the history of design in the 1950s, he quickly became the icon of industrial design. As a result, it has been copied a lot and has become a source of inspiration for many furniture designers.

Its cocooning aspect due to its enveloping and ultra-design shape (with optional speakers for music lovers and cinephiles) will make it the essential and trendy decorative asset of your home.

Egg Armchair: The Different Models

Perfectly adapted to our contemporary interiors, the egg armchair easily finds its place in a living room or bedroom, whether in a Haussmann-style apartment or an industrial-style loft, as well as in a country house, where its trendy furniture side will look great.

Good to know: there are several imitations of Arne Jacobsen’s armchair, which resemble the original in shape and name.

The Egg Chair Is Available in Different Colors and in Surprising Material Blends:

  • resin and fiber with velvet interior;
  • hard foam covered with colored fabric;
  • pure and simple copies in imitation leather;
  • aluminum shell studded like an aviator, with a micro-fiber interior, giving them a vintage look;
  • resin and leather seat for the “Ball” chairs, with a rounder shape.

Good to know: for those who have a garden or a terrace, the egg chair comes in a suspended swing made of braided resin with a cushion, ensuring an ultra-comfortable seat. It is suspended with its own support bracket, or fixed with a carabiner (be careful to fix it with fasteners adapted to the support, to avoid any risk of falling).

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Bean Bag

A bean bag is a seat with a shape reminiscent of a bean bag, narrow at the top and wide at the base. Filled with polystyrene beads or shape memory foam, the bean bag is comfortable because it conforms to the shape of your body. There are all kinds of styles: in acidic colors, in fake fur, for indoor or outdoor use for example. You can even find smaller sizes for children.

The Characteristics of the Bean Bag

A bean bag consists of an envelope (or cover) and a filling. It is sometimes equipped with a handle at the top to facilitate its transport. Its shape, as its name suggests, reminds us of a large bean bag as found in grocery stores. However, the bean bag we are talking about here is not the same as the bean bag at grocery stores. Recently bean bag has become part of the latest trends in the upholstery business.
The materials of the bean bag

The Material of the Envelope Depends on the Use of the Bean Bag:

  • For indoor use, the cover can be made of cotton, fake fur, braided fabric…
  • For outdoor use, it must be waterproof and is generally made of polyester.

The filling is made of polystyrene beads or memory foam. These malleable materials provide the comfort of a soft cushion.

The Dimensions of the Bean Bag

A bean bag measures about 120 to 140 cm in diameter and 125 to 150 cm in height.
A bean bag for children is 60 to 90 cm in diameter and 40 to 90 cm high.

The Weight of the Bean Bag

The bean bag is quite light, it weighs about 3 kg. This type of furniture is nomadic, can be moved as desired and is a practical companion seat.

The bean bag is a comfortable and friendly piece of furniture.
It can be a centerpiece of your living room, near your fireplace for example, or serve as a side-seat for your guests because it is easily transportable.

It creates a relaxation area in a bedroom. For children, it is a good place to enjoy reading. It is also very popular with gamers and can be installed in front of the game console. The bean bag has its place also in the garden, provided that its covering is adapted to the surroundings. Finally, it can be placed on a pool beach, a terrace, or directly on the grass for a relaxing moment.
