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).
