Pretty Little World

I want the pink one and the one covered in the pretty floral fabrics -- they would sit in the same living room and be sister chairs!

By the way, you had me pouring through pages of Suzanis on eBay all morning!

Nathan Verrill


P.S. Really cool chairs though.

you are too funny. what an interesting commentary upon the diversity of egg chairs.


Hehehe -- yes, the egg chairs are amazing in their natural and not-so-natural habitats. However, what is even more amazing is the prose you composed for this post. Bravo! :)

I adore the Egg, most especially in the tan leather in your top image. The more worn and distressed the leather the better. I dream of buying a vintage one!

I love the grandma egg chair. I just want to grab a book and curl up into it!

Such a fantastic post, Anne! Loved your writing. And loved those egg chairs!


Oh, what a wonderful ode to such a fantastic chair. You are just so clever! Love it best when blushing and juvenile variety.

Anne, another adorable post! I enjoyed this so much--your writing is so clever. I just sat in a black egg chair this weekend in Manhattan--my first time and had to educate my husband on this creature. Thank you for this delightful adventure!

The Egg Chair has absolutely been my favorite since Design School! Arne Jacobson was a genius!I recently saw it in a magazine in leopard velvet and it was fantastic!!

Utterly charming, Anne! The egg chair is one of my lust-have chairs. One day...

I love these posts, they're so whimsical! Do you know whether the egg chairs lay eggs when they have children?
Trudi =D


You are too funny. This post made me laugh out loud... beautiful chairs, though. Especially the blue I think.

wide open spaces

the egg chair has always been a bit 'too' modern for me but that top one had m eat hello. the worn leather takes some of the modern edge off for me. love it.

Miss B.

Anne ANOTHER brill post. This was done so well, I heart your blog so very much!


You're brilliant, Anne, brilliant!

Have the best weekend evah!

p.s.- did I happen to mention you're brilliant? ;0)


Anne, your commentary cracks me up! The Egg Chair is such a classic, and all of these spaces highlight it well.


Thank you for presenting diff pics of the same chair in such a creative format! I love showing people how fabric/color totally transforms a chair. I used to want the Egg until I sat in one and decided they are just for looks. But give me a Womb chair any day...
