General Interest

Originally built for the Radisson Hotel in Copenhagen the Egg Chair was typical of Arne Jacobsen's style and it quickly became a Mid Century Classic. Jacobsen was known for using unique materials in his pieces and was not afraid to take risks with the shape. It has been suggested that the Egg Chair design was actually inspired by Eero Saarinen's Womb Chair. Regardless, in many respects the Egg is a more complete design. An admired trait of the chair is the relatively thin oval body design. Its gracious curves comfortably surround the sitter. The high wing back makes it an excellent chair for curling up in with a good book. The egg chair is the essence of form and function. The Egg has appeared in movies, mags and TV since its birth in 1958. Among some of the more famous celebrities to be seen in Egg Chairs in photo shoots are Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot on cover of Vogue in the 1960s, and more recently Michelle Pfiefer on the cover of Esquire Magazine.


Kardiel offers the premier reproduction inspired by exacting detail to the original Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair. Its creation is taken from respect of the dimensions, the angles, the pitch and curve wrap of the Original Mid Century Classic Design. Arne Jacobsen’s attention to these details is what made the original Egg Chair an iconic classic.

Shopping Tip:

What it means when others indicate “100% Italian Leather.”
When the specifications of the furniture in question state that it is made with 100% leather or 100% Italian Leather but it does not state 100% full Grain Aniline Leather then it is made using 100% Corrected Grain Leather. Most, if not all reproductions in the mid price range are upholstered with Corrected Grain Leather. Corrected Grain is technically a form of leather that has a layer of polyurethane applied to the surface, which is then stamped or embossed using a synthetic plastic print roller to have the appearance of leather. By law, In the U.K and Australia corrected grain can no longer be sold as 100% leather. When that embossed polyurethane top layer wears through, your option is new furniture or a complete re-upholstery job.

100% Full Grain Aniline Italian Leather

One of Kardiel’s quality differences
You cannot buy a higher quality leather than Aniline. Aniline dyed leather is associated with various names depending on the manufacturer or the furniture company. You may come across names like premium aniline, naked aniline, aniline full grain, or true aniline, they’re all the same. Aniline is leather that has been dyed all the way through. It has no artificial top layer of anything applied. It is soft, pliable with a texture that caresses the hand as it runs over its surface. The porous nature of aniline leather allows it to breathe which in turn makes it that much more comfortable and durable. Aniline is genuine leather and patinas over time versus cracking and wearing out.
