Shell Lounge Chair
This retro, elegant chair is a replica of the Egg chair that Arne Jacobsen designed after studying at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. When Jacobsen first designed this chair for the bustling lobby of the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, it was an instant hit due to its modern, functionalist look. The unique curved shape, featuring integrated curved arms and a swivel seat, was the product of new materials that at the time allowed Jacobsen to design to create the trademark egg shape in a single molded shell. This classic chair was a huge hit at the Royal Hotel, with Danish designers citing it as a major source of inspiration for other pieces of furniture. Waiting patrons remarked on its ultra-soft feel against the skin and its tilt lock mechanism, which allowed visitors to relax in total comfort as the Royal Hotel - which Jacobsen designed in entirety, not just the lobby - took care of business.
The Egg chair has been replicated many times over by manufacturers seeking to make the Jacobsen aesthetic accessible to more homeowners and to attract a wider customer base. It’s no mystery why Egg chair replicas are so highly sought after. The curved design holds you the way an egg would cradle a baby chick. The luxurious sensation of the polyurethane foam, injection-molded chair has been hailed not only for its comfortable, natural feel but its timeless durability. The soft and supple material is a hallmark of the original Danish design, and the polyurethane foam is fire retardant. The replicas sturdy aluminum base is supported by a professional-grade chrome column, so you can be sure that it will last you a lifetime.
Each replica comes with a removable padded cushion made from the same foam and leather-polyurethane blend unless you opt for our pony cowhide replica or the one covered in our softest wool fabric blend. Ranging in a variety of colors from classic black, marbled brown, or a muted cordovan, the Egg chair reproduction will lend a unique retro look to any room in your home. Accessorize with a cushion or throw blanket. Perfect for lounging in front of the TV, curling up with a good book by a window or next to a cozy reading lamp, or simply socializing in the parlor, your new chair will ship within 24-48 hours and even comes with free shipping!
