Jacobsen Egg Chair

Arne Jacobsen is one of the most well-known furniture designers of the 20th century. Known best for his Egg Chair, Swan Chair, and Series 7 Chairs, Jacobsen's style helped to define an era. Perhaps his most well-known piece, the Jacobsen Egg Chair has become a hallmark of 20th century design. Our Jacobsen Egg Chair is an inspired reproduction of Jacobsen's original, and offers impeccable accuracy to the original.

Jacobsen worked as both an architect and designer. Together with a partner he produced the Ant and Series 7 Chairs in 1952, propelling both his and Hansen's names into furniture history. In 1958, Arne Jacobsen introduced the Egg Chair, Swan Chair, and Swan Sofa to the world when he designed the lobby and reception areas of the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. The Jacobsen Egg Chair earned instant notoriety and remains extremely popular today thanks to its unique look and chamber like seating area that blocks exterior noise.

The Jacobsen Egg Chair is available in a great variety of upholstery options, enabling you to choose which will best complement your home. Choose from several styles and colors of fabric, leather, and French vinyl. Pony-style cowhide is also available. It also includes a convenient tilt mechanism.

With an instantly recognizable look and a truly comfortable seat, the Jacobsen Egg Chair makes an excellent addition to any home. Relax in style with this chair that combines ultimate comfort and iconic style.

quality fabric and construction
We are impressed with this chair. The construction is high-quality, as is the fabric. Shipping took longer than we would have liked, but we are happy with the chair, and with the service we received from Inmod. I'd buy from them again.

It rocks, figuratively and literally
I've had this chair five years now. Looks great. Very comfortable. Two nits: The fabric pills a bit, and I've never figured out how to work the little lever on the bottom or what it does. Still, I'm still happy with my purchase and would (or will) buy from InMod again.

bigger and bolder than i thought
Larger than I thought it would look, still a cool looking ultra mod design but i'm going to have to find a way to move things around to keep it from looking so overpowering with my other furnishings

fabric / color
If you have any doubts about fabric or color like I did, get a swatch kit, the color differed in certain lighting, fortunately customer service worked with me on this one but because it was custom it took extra long to get the one i wanted, i know better for next time to ask for one

Just how does the tilt mechanism work? How much does it tilt?
1 Answer
The tilt mechanism is a handle on the side of the chair that when completely tightened, it locks the chair in the upright position. When you loosen the mechanism it allows the chair to be tilted back for reclining. It will not lock in a tilted position so it gives it more of a rocking type feel.
