Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair Obsession

I have just got home from a long lunch with my Mum, and a little window shopping, then a last coffee before Mum headed back home. This afternoon we got talking about different styles and furniture items, and somehow got back to the topic of my favourite chair of all time, so I thought I’d share a few images with you of my favourite chair and some other designs by Arne Jacobsen!

 

Call me crazy, but I have always dreamt of one day owning an original Arne Jacobsen Egg chair. For those of you who are not familiar, Arne Jacobsen is a well-known Danish designer, he designed the Egg chair in the late 1950’s for the SAS Royal Hotel, Copenhagen. Other Arne Jacobsen designs that may or may not be familiar to you are the Swan chair, and the series 7 chair.

Stylish huh! I would love to get it either in the red, or maybe a tan leather…

All such classic timeless designs they have continued to be produced even 50+ years on, and sadly there are also a lot of cheaper replicas out there too. I am a firm believer in protecting the integrity of original design and not supporting those that choose to replicate it. Sadly there are so many out there doing just that, making these once exclusive designs available to the masses, which in turn is decreasing the value of the original design, causing people to question whether you have purchased a real or a fake. What are your views on this?

On a lighter note, here are some very clever designers on Etsy that have used the Egg chair as inspiration for their own work, honouring Arne Jacobsen’s original design- I would happily purchase any of these!

Do you have a favourite furniture piece that you dream of one day owning? If you could buy any designer piece, what would it be?

I think we might head into town and go to the Aquarium this weekend… That is if we feel like venturing out of the house and into the cold! Maybe movies and popcorn will be a better idea? Hope you have a great weekend whatever you get up to! See you again Monday!
