A Perfect Change of Plan: Arne Jacobsen's Egg Chair

In 1958 Arne Jacobsen set about designing his visionary sofa for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen.  After too many failed attempts and depleted patience, he decided to improvise on his vision by making it a chair instead of a sofa.   This change in design turned out even better than Jacobsen could have expected and resulted in the iconic Egg Chair we still know and love today.

We have made our Egg Chair and Ottoman Reproduction to the same specifications Arne Jacobsen intended, adding a little extra cushioning for premium comfort.  We offer our version in any of our 19 exclusive boucle fabric color options.

You can come check it out in person by visiting any of our three showroom locations in BellinghamChicago or Dallas!

Eileen Gray's Bold Bibendum Chair

Following the success of Le Corbusier’s Grand Confort, in 1926 Eileen Gray was compelled to design a feminist version of her misogynist rival’s design.  The result was a rounder and softer lounge chair, inspired by the Michelin man, we now know as her ‘Bibendum Chair.’

Our Eileen Gray Bibendum Chair Reproduction sits upon a polished #304 Stainless Steel Frame and an interior frame made of solid hardwood to ensure a lasting durability.  The thick contour sections of our version make it a comfortable statement piece, just as Eileen Gray originally intended.

Wood Legs: Our New Option For This Modern Classic

Every once in a while, an unlikely combination will create an unprecedented and unified success or thing of beauty.  Think about it: pretzels and chocolate, an Elton John and Eminem live duet, wearing socks and sandals together (okay, not that last one)

Now we can add to the list our version of the Florence Knoll Lounge Chair with, wait for it…. wood legs!  That’s right, your options for this chair just vastly expanded now that you have your choice of any wood finish and leather color combination you decide to do.  Of course, if our classic stainless steel legs we have always used on this chair is more your style, we are still offering that option too.

Come visit us at our ChicagoBellingham or Dallas showroom locations where you can check out all we have to offer!
