The Egg Chair by Arne Jacobsen may not be a piece of furniture that was designed for the glitz and glamor of the tinsel town ever so specifically. But much like the ‘Chaise Lounge’ that was elevated to a whole new level thanks to the golden era of cinema, Hollywood has played a pivotal role in cementing the legacy of the iconic Egg chair. Designed originally in 1958 for Radisson Blu Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, this furnishing has stood the test of time and come out with flying colors.
From making a grand appearance in the Beatles video to getting a revamped look in Men In Black and the Austin Powers, many improvised versions have been inspired by this Arne Jacobsen’s classic creation over the years. An eternal symbol of style and chic sophistication its curves exude both power and panache – the reason for its on screen success. These gorgeous interiors that sport the Egg chair will hopefully inspire to add one to the interiors of your home as well!

Ergonomic Design and Timeless Appeal
The Egg chair was indeed a revolutionary piece of décor that was way ahead of its time and that fit perfectly with other creations of Jacobsen. A unique sculpting technique was devised by the designed that helped bring forward those stunning curves that the chair so proudly displays. It also played an important role in the revolution that Danish designers brought to modern furnishings with their inventive designs. But most essentially, the Egg chair is a brilliant creating that has not lost its charm for more than half a century now.

The secret for this success lies in the marriage of amazing functionality with innovative form that provides a dynamic contrast to an otherwise sterile world that is largely limited to clean and well defined straight lines. Its overall compact form means it works well within small spaces as well and fits in seamlessly in a contemporary or even minimalist home.

Not Just for Adults!
The popular conception around is that the Egg chair is largely right for interiors that opt for a lavish and rich theme that has understated tones of Hollywood Regency. Yet, that is the farthest thing from the truth as a leather Egg chair in black can bring along with it a touch of masculinity that is refined. Even kids’ rooms are a wonderful place to use the Egg chair as the bright colors they come in are an ideal fit. Mix them with a few other dashing patterns and some colorful décor and an Egg chair can turn into the most appealing and attractive addition to the children’s bedroom or even the playroom.

Accentuate with a Dash of Color
Accent colors are being used more and more as contemporary home owners are largely opting for interiors with neutral color pallets. Accent colors do play a pivotal role in ensuring that the white, grey and brown setting does not turn into a bland affair. A touch of sun-kissed yellow, a dash of bright red or a tinge of regal purple can breathe life into your living space sporting muted tones. This is precisely where the Egg chair comes in. Since the Egg chair is available in stunning shades and vivacious colors that vary from dazzling magenta to gorgeous green, they can easily be a part of your accent color scheme.
