Arne Jacobsen is one of the most influential and iconic designers of furniture operating in the 20th Century and, of the many pieces he created, the one with which he became most synonymous was that of the spectacular Egg Chair pictured above. It boasts the sort of timeless appeal that is essential for a piece of furniture that is capable of spanning generations of style like this seminal design.
Jacobsen was born in Denmark in 1902 and despite the majority of his pieces being released over half a century ago, they are still just as relevant from an interior design point of view as they were when they were first released. Something that truly speaks volumes about Arne Jacobsen as a designer. As with most designers, there is one piece in particular for which they are most famed and, for Jacobsen, it was certainly his breath taking creation of the Egg Chair.
The Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair was originally released in 1958 and it was, in the first instance, built to be placed in the lobby of a Copenhagen hotel but such was the eye-catching design of the piece that it wasn’t long before the Egg Chair began full-scale production to fulfill people’s desire to have such a striking piece of statement furniture for their homes.
Jacobsen had many contemporaries in the world of furniture design that came to prominence around the same time, such as Charles Eames, Hans Wegner and Eero Aarnio and these iconic designers shaped a generation of furniture and the out of the box thinking of these designers meant that their pieces have truly stood the test of time.
For any homeowner looking to add a dash of luxury and style to their property, a piece of statement furniture like the Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair is certainly a good place to start. Comfort is, of course, essential when it comes to designer furniture and this is an area in which the Egg Chair positively excels. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a piece of furniture that offers more comfort and such is the universal appeal of the Egg Chair, it is the sort of item that will look fantastic in more or less any room in the home – from the lounge to the bedroom.
