Description Unveiled at the Royal Copenhagen Hotel in Denmark in 1958, the poster child of Danish design has become one of the most coveted chairs of all time. Fifty years after Danish designer and architect Arne Jacobsen first created the chair in his garage, the timeless, modern design icon is found in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Art Center in Tokyo, and residences around the world.

The Egg Chair is still produced by Fritz Hansen, the original Danish manufacturer. The chairs are completely handmade with over 1,300 stitches, and more than four yards of fabric.

This example is an early edition (#968) that has been expertly reupholstered using Maharam's Hallingdal wool textile in orange (#590).

The ottoman is 16" D x 21" W x 16" H.
Styles / Movements Mid Century, Modern, Scandinavian Modern
