The Egg chair is strange, let’s face it. It’s weird looking, and it seems like it comes from another dimension or another time. You can say it looks futuristic, but it also looks sort of alien, and yet, you just can stop looking at it. Arne Jacobsen knew how to make people uncomfortable with beauty, and he also knew how to make them comfortable through furniture. The Egg chair is weird, yes, but it is also extremely ergonomic and soft, especially in leather.
Manhattan Home Design’s Egg chair replica in leather differs from the fabric Egg chair replica on the price alone. The rest is the same quality manufacturing process, the one that we use to create all of our best-selling mid-century reproductions. Most people have told us that they can hardly notice the difference between our chair and the original, and that’s a very good compliment. We’re not looking to imitate; we’re looking to bring you the best for a fair price.
Specifications and dimensions
However, the manufacturing process does create expenses, and he specific build and materials required to craft one of these chairs bring the price up to $2,388. However, an original Egg chair will probably set you back around 4 to 5 thousand dollars on average. The premium upholstery is top-grade leather hand-stitched using braided lockstitch technology, the base is polished aluminum, and the shell is curvature-true fiberglass covered by PU-injected foam and synthetic Dacron silk.
At 42 inches tall, this is one of the highest designer chairs you can get for your lounge. It is also 35 inches wide, which makes it a bit thinner, and only 29 inches long. With this in mind, why should you buy an Egg chair? Isn’t it just too exaggerated for a mid-century living room?
To be fair, most people who encounter a Jacobsen design will have the same thought. However, mid-century furniture is about defying the boundaries of design and construction without losing the aesthetic focus or functional prowess. This chair is perfect for any living room. It doesn’t recline but it will embrace you in luxury and comfort, and you will hardly want to get up.
