I have long been smitten with the mid century modern style, so when I happened upon Restoration Hardware’s ad campaign I was so excited. Their new line brings styles reminiscent of the 40’s through the 60’s and inspired by various iconic forms and ideas of the eras. Desks, chairs and case-goods are clad in polished aluminum that harken back to WWII fighter planes. A floor lamp replicates old Hollywood set lights.
What caught my eye, however, was the iconic egg chair originally designed by Danish architect, Arne Jacobsen in 1958 for a hotel he was building.
The look blends mid-century modern with the rustic charm that is Restoration Hardware. The dark colors and leather upholstery screams masculinity and comfort. Although I love modern design I’m not sure I would an original egg chair (or replica) in my home. It is a little to stark for my style, but I could see me incorporating this Restoration Hardware egg chair in my husband’s office.
I have noticed egg chair replicas popping up in several magazines – Elle Decor
for example. If your style is a bit more modern or if you like a little more color in your environment, egg chair replicas can be found at several furniture resources -check out Design Within Reach, Room Service
& Hive Modern.
