Will mid century modern chairs ever go out of style? It’s highly doubtful! They were forged by the mid century modern era gods of furniture designs and were the epitome of innovation when they were conceived. They keep topping the charts even now for their resilience and timelessness!
These classic chairs like the Egg Chair or Swan Chair by Arne Jacobsen have a funny way of transforming an ordinary room into something extravagant. But, it can get a little confusing to decide which one of the MCM chairs will look great for a particular space.
For inspiration, we’ve come up with helpful suggestions when it comes to incorporating them in contemporary and modern interiors…
The iconic Egg Chair was designed by the celebrated designer, Arne Jacobsen, for the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel in Germany. The chair features a steel frame, high curved back and rounded bottom that lends it great volume.
The Egg Chair is made available today in a wide range of color and upholstery options at affordable prices. Whether you choose one in red, orange or blue, it would work brilliantly in open modern spaces with high ceilings, like a library or loft.
The Swan Chair is the Egg Chair’s cousin and was conceived simultaneously for the same hotel. It is one of the most influential chairs of its times. Its seamless curvature redefines the retro style and it still remains as popular as ever.
This piece featuring wide arms and low back coupled with vintage swagger is perfect as a side or lounge chair. It works well in both residential and commercial spaces and can really bring life to any type of interiors. Get a Swan Chair in bright and vibrant colors to add glamour.
