It’s timeless classic, which has graced many homes, and seen many generations. We only serve you the best of furniture pieces here at Regency Shop. So, get ready to be thrilled as you read further.
The Bubble Chair was created by Eero Aarnio. It’s design dates back to 1968 and that makes it even more surprising and fascinating. According to Eero’s notes, original the Bubble chair was hung from the ceiling because ‘there’s no nice way to make a clear pedestal.’ He is well known for his plastic and fiberglass chairs. Eero Aarnio was born in Helsinki, Finland. He studied at the Institute of Industrial Arts, before he began his own interior/industrial design office in 1962. For his earlier designs, such as his basket chair Jattujakkare; Aarnio used natural materials. His most popular design, the Ball Chair (designed in 1962) which is a hollow sphere made of plastic, with an opening on one side that has a padded interior and a seat. In 1968, Eero Aarnio won the American Industrial Design Award for the Plastil Chair, which is a curved, organic design made of fiberglass, and floats on water. Many of his designs are humorous and interesting. A few are; the Pony Chair and The Tipi [which is a chair made in the shape of a bird]. He combined the Scandinavian tradition of simplicity with innovative use of materials, and created furniture designs that are sculptural yet functional. His designs went on to become iconic in popular culture during the 1960s, and his works are held in several museum collections, such as;
- The Victoria and Albert Museum in London,
- The Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, and
- The Museum of Modern Art in New York.
History and inspiration of the hanging bubble chair
As a young boy Eero Aarnio was fascinated with soap bubbles. In the city, he had never made one. But on escaping the war to the countryside, he remembered blowing huge soap bubbles from a barn. The bubbles would take off with the wind and drift far away into the fields. The image of a field filled with transparent soap bubbles stuck with him and never left. After the success of the Ball Chair, Eero carried on designing again with functionalism as his goal. The ball chair seemed to be a perfect hiding place from the outside world; but Eero later discovered that reading in the Ball chair was not ideal. There was not enough light inside this chair. So, he came up with all kinds of ideas on how to let in light inside the Ball Chair… including an experiment with a small window in it. After various efforts, he wondered if the shell could be made of transparent material. At first, he drew the shell to consist of two halves; joined together with a seam. He came to the conclusion that it would probably work, but the look would not be what the he desired. The family had half-round acrylic ceiling windows at their home, and he started to wonder, how are they actually made? Eero Aarnio grabbed the yellow pages and under the occupation listings found a company, which produced ceiling windows. He called them and simply asked how the windows are made, and if his idea could work. Alas, the idea was possible! Acrylic can be heated and blown into shape, just like a soap bubble. He was later faced with another problem. With a shell made of acrylic, how would one fasten the shell to the pedestal? The structures would be too complex to work with, and the aesthetics would be totally different. There was really no nice way to attach the shell to a leg. He then came up with the idea of fixing it to the ceiling. The final sketch was done in 1968. Now, one won’t run out of light reading in the Bubble Chair, it’s flooding with natural light from all directions. When it came to using a chain to suspend the bubble chair, the decision was easy for Eero. A metal chain was by far the strongest in his eyes. Presenting the Bubble to Asko Furniture Company, they were very excited from the beginning. At this time, the Ball Chair had already gained a lot of momentum around the world, and the Bubble received high praise by the public as well.

Are you shopping for a cozy lounger or sofa, or just reading up on the Egg pod chair? You’ve come to the right place. We have a lot to tell you about the egg pod lounge chair. Keep scrolling…
The egg pod chair was designed by a Finnish designer- Eero Aarnio. After starting a solo career in the beginning of the 1960s, he was still an obscure designer who aspired to create a furniture piece he would be remembered for. He had always been thrilled by boats and had familiarized himself with a new invention used in the shipping industry- fiberglass. He imagined if he could use this material for furniture. Eero knew that the best form for malleable plastic is a curve. But a closed ball would withstand anything. He found the most practical use for this novel material he was working with. The Aarnios also needed a chair at home, which would be large enough for all four of the family [him and his wife Pirkko, and their two daughters], to sit together in. Even though functionality was always his first aim, Eero Aarnio is no ordinary designer. He said to his wife: “I will make a chair that when it is put in a shop window, no one will just walk past it.” He had always loved to provoke emotions and cause a stir with his designs.
The egg pod chair vs ball chair
The egg pod chair is not to be confused with the ball chair [read here]. Though both are creations of Eero Aarnio and share a number of similarities. The differences come in when you look at their respective shapes. The ball chair is a sphere, while the egg pod chair is egg-like [oval] and has more head room and space. The ball chair was created before the egg pod chair. So, the latter draws a number of ideas from it. The exterior of the chair was designed in the shape of an egg shell whose front has been carved out to deliver a nest-like space. It’s like a room in a room – your very own ‘pod‘ – and protects the user from outside interference (mostly noise) while providing a relaxing place to sit down and do your thing. Its privacy is one of its most amazing qualities.
Features of the egg pod chair
Its external shell is made from glossy laminate Fiberglass. The interior fabric is made from cashmere. The egg pod interior has luxurious cushion padding and a bearing swivel system for ease of turning. It comes with a stereo, and amplifier. You could plug in your devices, to enjoy your favorite tunes, from the comfort of your seat. Available colors are: Red, white, orange, green, black, and blue. But we currently have it in black, blue green, and red. You could also order a custom color, to you taste. All chairs come with white exterior. Finally, it requires no assembly. Once you get it home, you are good to go!
What does it feel like to sit in it?
This amazing masterpiece tastefully blends art and science. You are guaranteed to have your privacy while relaxing in the egg pod chair. It has a strong base made from molded aluminum, so you are never going to wonder if the chair would fall off. The interior upholstery is top tier. And the cashmere material holds and relaxes your body gently, as you sit in. You could work from it, watch the TV, read a book, have a conversation, or even sleep. You have all the space and comfort to do whatever you please.
Where can you place it?
The egg pod chair is an indoor chair. And it is perfect for bedrooms or contemporary living spaces. You could keep it in your bedroom, office or shaded patio. It should be kept away from direct sunlight and harsh weather conditions.
What can you pair with it?
You could pair the egg pod chair with an ottoman. There are also a number of tables that would go well with it. When it comes to sofas, you could pair the egg pod chair with the chesterfield sofa, or the marshmallow sofa.
Cleaning and maintaining it
There are principally two ways to take care of ball chair. First, you could just use your vacuum to remove any dust that has settled on the ball chair’s face. Second, you can wash it with water and cleaner. Eero Aarnio ball chair is made from polyurethane and thus it’s veritably easy to clean. Still, drop it with warm soapy water; or you could also use non-abrasive dishwashing liquid mixed with lukewarm water, if the ball chair has been exposed to some dirt and needs drawing further completely. Wash off using cold tap water, and allow to drip dry.
What to consider before you buy one
Nearly 50 years after, the egg pod chair remains an icon of its own. Although its design is readily appreciated, there are a few things you should consider before you buy one:
Size: The size of the Egg Pod chair is not exactly suited for small spaces. So, it’s always recommended to consider the size of your space before you make the final purchase.
Aesthetic: Another thing that you should consider before buying the Egg Pod chair is if it matches your overall home ambience. You cannot put something so futuristic in a classic or vintage theme. So, make sure that your room is capable of highlighting and complementing its character before you buy it.

The ball chair is made of polyurethane and was initially designed in 1963. Since then, the ball chair has been one of the most renowned chair designs. It is not just an attractive piece of design but also a functional addition to many homes and offices due to its ergonomic features and beauty.
What’s the inspiration behind the Ball chair?
The ball chair, also known as the Globe chair or ball arm chair; it was created by a Finnish designer named Eero Aarnio. After starting as a freelancer in the beginning of the 1960s, he was still an unknown designer who dreamt of creating a furniture piece that he would be remembered for. He had always been intrigued by sailing boats and had familiarized himself with a new material called fiberglass. He wondered if he could use this material for furniture. Eero knew that the best form for malleable plastic is curve. But a closed ball would endure almost anything. He found the most practical use for this new material he was working with. The Aarnios also needed a chair at home, which would be large enough for all four of the family [him and his wife Pirkko, and their two daughters], to sit together in. Even though functionality was always his first aim, Eero Aarnio is no ordinary designer. He said to his wife: “I will make a chair that when it is put in a shop window, no one will just walk past it.” He had always loved to provoke emotions and cause a stir with his designs.

What are the features of the ball chair?
The ball chair can rotate 360 degrees, in a swivel-like manner; which is what gives it its ergonomic character. In addition to rotating smoothly, the ball chair also has an adjustable height lever that allows users to adjust the height of the ball chair according to their personal preferences. The comfort of this ball chair stems from its round contours and high backrest for neck support. Eero Aarnio designed ball chair with a ball on top of a metal frame, which is supported by a round base. The ball itself is made from polyurethane and feels very comfortable due to its ergonomic shape. The ball chair is available in many different colors so that it can suit most preferences and interior designs. Since its launch in 1963, ball chair has been a huge success worldwide and is currently being sold by many different retailers. Continue reading here!

Who needs the ball chair?
People who experience discomfort after long hours spent sitting in hard-backed traditional office chairs with fixed seats & armrests.
People who want to improve their posture at work.
Those looking relieve stress on their lower back & joints.
People with back or joint problems ball chairs are very expensive, which is the reason you need to be choosy when selecting one for your home.
How to use the ball chair?
The ball chair by Eero Aarnio works by allowing you to sit in an ergonomically correct position, putting less strain on your back. It also helps to improve posture when sitting for long periods of time at a desk or in front of the computer. However, no ball chair will help if it is not used correctly! For this reason, make sure you follow these instructions when using ball chairs:
To start with, choose the right size ball. A ball that is too big will have more surface area touching the floor and may result in you tipping over backwards when seated on it; conversely, choosing one which is too small or under-filled may mean that you are forced into an over-extended posture. Think about this: when sitting on a ball chair, your thighs should be parallel with the floor and your back should be straight. Your head, neck and shoulders should be in line with the rest of your spine; if not, you will feel discomfort!
Make sure that ball chairs are used correctly at home, the office or in the classroom by following these instructions:
a) Sit on ball chair so that it is directly under your pelvis Press feet firmly into ground and tilt pelvis forward to flatten ball against pelvic rim.
b) Allow lower back to gently curve inward while bracing abdominal muscles. Hold position for 30 seconds before slowly returning to start position.
c) To decrease intensity always keep ball close to pelvic rim. To increase intensity, move ball further away from pelvis.
d) Relax ball chair once you have achieved the correct position so that your weight is being distributed evenly between ball and floor. Continue reading here!

“Egg Chairs are known for being comfortable and classy, and they come in a variety designs”.
The brain behind the egg chair.
Arne Jacobsen [1902 – 1971] was a Danish architect and furniture designer. He is internationally known for his contributions to architecture and furniture design, especially in the mid-20th century modernist style. He designed many other pieces of furniture including the Ant Chair and The Swan Chair. Arne Jacobsen won the Carlsberg Foundation’s special prize in 1957, which enabled him to spend some time experimenting with principles of high-quality cutting-edge design. It is from this period he conceived his most famous chair [the egg chair] from a simple drawing made on an envelope. And that drawing has birthed one of the greatest chairs ever made.
Let’s talk about this masterpiece chair called the ‘Egg Chair’.
Its defining characteristic comes in the form of sides that curve upwards. But, that’s just the least obvious detail. A lot of contemporary chairs have rotating, swiveling, and tilting functions, which are amazing features. Similarly, egg chairs have stable platforms with hydraulic levers for controlling height. They look like typical office chairs and can fill that role quite nicely. Their back support is exceptional, enabling you to relax while working. The base of the chair is a flat stand for stability and a swivel for a 360 scope of vision. Arne’s egg chair as a whole creates a visual sensation that reaches out and draws you into comfort and relief. The Egg Chair was inspired by an earlier piece of furniture also created by Arne, the Swan chair. Legend says that he actually threw this prototype on the floor one day and it bounced back up at him! Amazing, right? That should tell you how much sturdiness the egg chair packs. The Egg Chair was officially launched at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers Exhibition in 1958 where it became a huge success. And till today, it’s still very much sought after.
“Egg chairs help maintain an ergonomic-friendly seating position, with unbeatable comfort”.
Let’s discuss color and upholstery options of the egg chair
There are various types of upholstery materials that could be used to style the egg chair. I checked online for different pictures of the egg chair, and typically, egg chairs are available in a variety of upholstery materials. The most common choices tend to be leatherette or microfiber. Other options are also available. You would also find the egg chair wrapped in velvet, Cow Hide, linen and cashmere. The options available now at the STORE are; leatherette and cashmere. And we think these 2 are the best for the egg chair. No matter your preference or color theme of your space, there is a piece for you. We have in stock a number of appealing colors for you to choose from. Available colors are; Red, White, Orange, Black and Premium Custom Colors.
Pause for a minute… You have learnt about the amazing egg chair. If you are not yet certain why you should get one, we have kept the main gist for last. Here are the 4 untold reasons why you should get the egg chair NOW!
Egg chairs are ergonomically manufactured, with your comfort in mind.
Egg chairs help maintain an ergonomic-friendly seating position, with unbeatable comfort. The egg shape embraces the body, promoting good sitting posture and reducing stress at the lower back, shoulder and neck. Unlike some large, leather chairs, egg chairs take up very little space so they fit comfortably in a variety of spaces. Egg chairs make a wonderful addition to any home, outdoor or office space. Yes, egg chairs are great for your back and good overall health. The ergonomic sitting position is ideal for promoting healthy posture while reducing stress on the muscles and joints throughout the body. Comfort is the main benefit and the main selling point of an egg chair. It has high sides and properly cushioned seat for prolonged sitting. Some similar designs such as Ball Chair are spheres that encapsulate the occupant. Indeed, the egg chair is the perfect furniture to curl up in, lounge, read, and muse. The cocooning embrace puts you at ease and soothes your body. If you want nothing less of an elitist level of comfort, opt for chairs with highest-density padding and premium, heavy-duty material. Go for the egg chair.
Egg chairs are eye-catching and they ooze style.
Egg chairs have a unique optical flair around them. Their unique, cocoon-like shape was born from a mid-century experience and supreme vision of its creator [Arne Jacobsen]. Namely, they have that quirky, physical appeal, which made them a classic. Original Jacobsen style features sleek, minimalist contours that emanate effortless chic. They serve as true attention-arresting centerpieces. And our egg chairs at Regency Shop are amazing recreations of this masterpiece furniture. You definitely would not miss the original that much, if you shop from us. All in all, there is a wide array of gorgeous finishes to consider. You can make your style statement regardless of your taste. And we have a number of options for you to choose from. If you’re looking for a chair that is both comfortable and stylish, the egg chair is the perfect choice.
Egg chairs comes in multiple options for you to pick from.
Egg chairs come in all designs, colors, and sizes. They can adorn both outdoor and indoor [home and office] spaces. This is also to say they can match many types of décor and room layout. To make this magic happen, however, you need to choose a color that complements the rest of the interior room or space where you would want it fit into.
Egg chairs are strong and durable.
Egg chairs tend to be both light but very strong. Earlier models were foam-based because wood or steel could not produce that distinct curvy shape desired. When it comes to recent pieces, they are framed with materials such as fiberglass, steel, plastic, and aluminum. Generally, the furnishing contains layers of polyester or leather. Egg chairs built for outdoor use are upholstered in waterproof materials [leatherette and cashmere] and have rust-resistant metal components. You don’t have to worry about harsh weather elements doing some damage on your chair. Most models have considerable load capacity. Their heavy-duty frames provide superior stability and accommodate kids and adults. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing and functional, many egg chairs are also very durable. If you’re looking for a chair that will last, an egg chair is the perfect choice for you.
Egg chairs are versatile.
The appeal also lies in its high versatility. We have talked about this earlier. But we want you give you more details on how and where you can use your egg chair. These chairs are suited to fit all kinds of living or working environments. Egg chairs are known for being visually pleasing as well as comfortable. Plus, they come in a variety of colors and patterns to suit your style. Many people place their egg chairs in living rooms or bedrooms. However, they are mostly used in dorm rooms and studio apartments. For example, if you own a small apartment that needs some extra seating, an egg chair may be the perfect choice. Many people get one to use it as a desk chair, and they make the perfect seat for doing your homework or working at a laptop. Also, because egg chairs tend to lean back more than other types of chairs, they can provide you with a place to cool off once you’re done with work. Egg chairs are particularly suited for smaller rooms, living areas or dens; they can also work well in bedrooms as additional seating. If the room has a limited amount of space, it is best to buy a smaller egg chair. They are incredibly versatile and can be made use of in the home, patio, office terrace, outdoors, on the boat, etc. they could also be matched with a coffee table, or an ottoman [for extra comfort].
Egg chairs are easy to clean and maintain.
The Egg Chair is made of foam over a metal frame. So, make sure that you simply take care not to scratch or puncture its upholstery material, and avoid using it in a very dusty environment or next to a fireplace. The Egg Chair has adjustable [4-spoke] feet which provide stability. We would also advise you not use your egg chair near any equipment, such as a lawn mower, which could cause punctures or tears. If the Egg chair is too dusty (e.g., in an area where dead leaves or debris accumulate), you can clean it with a vacuum; then make sure that particles of dirt do not scratch the upholstery. You can clean the exterior yourself with with warm water and mild soap (dish-washing liquid soap), using a sponge or soft brush to scrub both sides. You should rinse using clean water, and remove excess water by blotting with paper towels. Ensure that no residue of water remains before allowing the chair to dry completely. We do not recommend using chemical cleaning agents on any part of this chair because they might harm the upholstery. Eggs chairs are not advised to be used in harsh conditions (next to pools) where corrosion is an important issue; they can be moved elsewhere (indoors) when not in use. However, even if the Egg chair is brought into a climate-controlled environment, it will remain on outdoor feet, which will contribute to its corrosion. If the feet become corroded, we recommend having them replaced. Read more here!

Le Corbusier’s LC2 Loveseat brings with it a rich, luxurious character that permeates elegance in any modern living room in which it is situated. The LC2 Loveseat is also known as the “LC2 Two Seater Sofa.” When paired with the LC2 Armchair, the coupled chairs make a grand statement in the traditional or modern home. The wealthy design and inviting stature of the modern pieces also make the LC2 Loveseat and the LC2 Chair a sophisticated furnishing to any executive office, lobby or professional waiting room. When buying a LC2 Loveseat for your modern home or business, follow these ten tips and you’ll be able to distinguish a quality two-seater LC2 Loveseat from a poor replica:
1) The LC2 Loveseat is a steel tubular frame. The frame should be made from a quality high gauge steel (grade 304), and should contain chromium plating for rust protection and a strong shine.
2) The chromium plating on the frame of the LC2 two-seater sofa should hide the joints in the chair. If you can see the joints, then it is a poor quality replica.
3) The tubular steel frame of the LC2 Loveseat forms a small, but noticeable wedge on the arms of the sofa. If there is no indent into the arms of the sofa from the steel frame, and the arms are void of a slight “cushiony” bulge, then the sofa is not a quality replica.
4) The support for the two seat cushions of the LC2 Loveseat should be tight fabric bands, preferably a nylon webbing. Amateur replicas will try to get away with cardboard as a support for the seat cushions.
5) The LC2 Loveseat should be upholstered with high quality aniline leather. Colored fabric is widely available, and can give the sofa a softer, brighter appeal if it is required for the interior design of the home or office; however, the LC2 two-seater sofa is traditionally covered in a 1-1.5mm thick black leather. A full grain leather with a matte finish provides a luxurious executive style, and white leather is an ideal choice for many spacious home interior designs.
6) The two top seat cushions should not be overly firm. The top two cushions will have a slight full-bodied appearance. The LC2 Loveseat should be filled with down feathers or a polyurethane and polyester blend.
7) The arms on the LC2 two-seater sofa are the same measurement as on the LC2 armchair: 5” (12.7cm) across.
8) The LC2 Loveseat is 25.4” (67.05cm) high and around 51.2” (13.04cm) wide. The LC2 Loveseat and the LC2 armchair are both 17” (43.18cm) from the bottom of the chair to the top of the seat cushion.
9) The glides on the bottom of the legs of the sofa are aligned with the edges of the steel, there is no overhang of the glider.
10) The LC2 Loveseat could weigh anywhere from 50 (22.67kg) to 80 lbs.(36.28kg) and will vary depending on the choice of leather and quality of the steel.
Le Corbusier’s LC2 Loveseat is a timeless two-seater sofa that embodies comfort and distinguished luxury within its arms. The LC1 Chair and the LC2 Loveseat will please any modern furniture enthusiast with its modern indulgence of affluent appeal. Following the ten tips listed above will help you distinguish a quality two-seater LC2 Loveseat from substandard versions. You can then be confident that you’ll be resting in the arms of designer sophistication after buying a quality LC2 Loveseat to join your modern furniture collection.

The LC2 Chair epitomizes the ability of plump cushion comfort to contain itself in a rectilinear modern design with a strong geometric presence. The LC2 Chair by the modern designer Le Corbusier was created back in 1929, yet it wholly represents today’s modern furniture trends. This armchair is classically Bauhaus and International Style, devoid of ornamentation yet striking in design, massive yet minimalist, and most importantly, demonstrates the power of functionality and art in modern furniture design. LC2’s design embraces comfort; and the urge to make oneself comfortable in such a design is hardly restrainable. The LC2 Chair, particularly when combined with the LC2 Loveseat, is a practical and solid addition to any modern home furniture collection, and truly a distinguished furniture addition to any classic or modern office interior design. When buying the LC2 chair, be sure to scrutinize your purchase by following these 10 tips to help you choose a designer chair of the best quality:
1) The wedging of the side cushions by its steel frame is one of the most unique features of the LC2 Chair, and one of the easiest ways to distinguish a quality LC2 Chair from a poorly replicated design. The frame wedging affects the seat comfort, as well as its stability (and, of course, its appearance). The steel frame on poor quality replicas is not wedged far enough into the armchair, and there is no cushion extruding from the frame, rather it looks like a solid rectangle. A frame that is wedged too far into the chair, will provide an excessive puffiness and deter from the armchair’s linear elements.
2) Leather furniture enthusiasts delight in the LC2 chair’s strong leather personality. Anything except quality leather would deter from the chair’s distinguished appeal. An Italian aniline-dyed full grain leather would be of the highest quality. A thickness between 1 – 1.5mm is appropriate. The original LC2 has a matte finish, but soft leather finishes are very popular. Vinyl and lower quality leathers are not acceptable. Fabric upholstery is acceptable and widely available.
3) The seat cushions in the Le Corbusier’s LC2 Chair should not be a square piece of foam padding. A Polyurethane and polyester or down feather provides the comfort that is intended.
4) The top cushion is plumper than the firmer bottom cushion.
5) The arms of the LC2 armchair are 5” (12.7cm) across.
6) The frame should be flawless tubular high gauge steel that is chrome plated for optimal shine. A chromium plating of 25-35 mm is used for rust protection and to hide the joints. In a lower quality stainless steel version, the joints are visible.
7) The frame is also available in a matte or black glossy finish. However, the chrome frame adheres to the designer’s original medium.
8) The LC2 armchair as a width of 30” (76.2cm) facing the front of the chair (from left side to right side), and a width of 27.6” (70.10cm) on the side of the chair (from back to front). The side of the chair from steel frame to steel frame should be 22.4” (56.89cm). The height of the chair is 26.4” (67.05cm), and from the bottom to the top of the seat cushion it is 17” (43.18cm).
9) The bottom support of the seat should be tight strapping, and not cardboard.
10) The chair will weigh around 60 pounds (27.3kg).
The LC2 Chair is one of Le Corbusier’s most distinguished designs. Adding the LC2 chair to your modern furniture collection or your office interior design is sure to carry its distinguishing characters directly into your home of office. When you buy your LC2 chair, make sure you scrutinize the armchair with the above tips in mind to avoid buying an inferior product. You’ll be comfortable in your new LC2 Chair knowing that you bought the highest quality chair for your modern home.

• Deep earth tones in flooring, such as dark hardwoods, are complemented by rich furniture colors, such as deep red or dark green.
• Stark white walls cry out for contrast: consider black or a primary color for your chair.
• A pastel, watercolor room will benefit from white or cream chairs for a light, soft palette
• If you use jewel tones, such as emerald or rich purple in your room décor, consider using sapphire blue for your chair to continue the rich tonality.
• In a large room, consider you Barcelona chair a sculptural piece, and pick a bright, saturated color for maximum impact.
• Anchor a cream-and-white room palette with a black chair: the tones will all work well together.
• If you are using wallpaper or printed window treatments, pick up one of the lesser colors in the print and use that as your chair color.
• Cool-toned environments such as blue, violet, and mint green will be flattered by cool chair colors: think pure white, not cream.
• Warm-toned environments such as mustard yellow or burnt orange will require warm furniture tones: cream, or tobacco brown would be good choices.

Letting too much build up to accumulate can cause wear to the leather seams. • For light maintenance on the molded plywood or veneer sections of your Eames Lounge Chair, use can use a vacuum cleaner or soft cloth to remove any dust or dirt. • Heavier or more substantial cleaning may be needed for the plywood sections, and you can accomplish this safely with a soft cloth treated with a wood designated dusting or cleaning product.

So you’re thinking you like the Eames Lounger and it might make a great addition to your home. No doubt Eames Lounge Chairs have a great reputation for durability and comfort, as well as a pretty impressive appearance, but they also have some incredible history behind them. • Charles Eames and a friend, Eero Saarinen, entered a prototype Eames Lounge Chair in the 1940 New York Museum of Modern Art’s Organic Furniture Competition. • Saarinen, an architect, and Charles Eames, a furniture designer, where searching for methods to enhance furniture design styles and the technologies used in their creation, to suit the every changing needs of the consumer and the culture at large. • The first Eames designs incorporated molded plywood, a concept never before utilized in future production, but one that has since gained a major foothold within the furniture industry. • Eames and Saarinen won the 1940 Organic Furniture Competition and likely would have begun mass production of the Eames Lounger shortly thereafter, had American involvement in World War II not commenced in the midst of production planning. • During The War, Eames was involved in a U.S. Air Force production project which focused on the creation of durable molded plywood splints. His activities in the project proved quite beneficial to his dreams of creating uniquely designed, comfortable, and high quality lounge chairs through the combination of new technological means and the time proven techniques of handcrafted design methodologies. In working for the U.S. Air Force, Eames was able to perfect his methods for creating molded plywood with complex curvatures. • The Eames Lounge Chair is the creation of Charles and Ray Eames, a husband and wife design team who successfully combined craftsmanship and technology to foster a revolutionary change in twentieth century furniture design. • Following the end of World War II, Charles and his wife Ray expanded significantly the design components of the previous prototypes Charles and Saarinen had created. Eames Loungers were among the first chairs to ever include a split back rest capable of bending or responding to the comfort and position of the individual occupying the chair. • The Eames Lounge Chair was a distinct change in the industry of furniture production. The previous periods of furniture design and creation relied on the inclusion of various materials, components, and fabrics to create comfortable and attractive chair designs. The Eames Lounger brought furniture design to a new level through. The use of technological advances and time honored handcrafting techniques allowed the Eames design team to create high quality, comfortable, and attractive furniture utilizing a minimum of materials in the processes. • Eames Loungers, especially those of early production designs and prototypes, are highly valued collector items for those interested in modern design. • The Eames Lounge Chair holds a permanent place in the New York Museum of Modern Art.

1. Contours: Plywood shells that provide the lounge chair to deliver well in extreme conditions. Be sure to find three such plywood shells in an Eames lounge chair.
2. Curves: Interlocking of curved forms grants solidarity to the chair. This is facilitated with the seats and the plywood shells being of the same shape.
3. Spacious: Identical sizes of the chair and the backrest allowing you to relax with no part of your body exposed outside the chair. This kind of architecture follows the best principles of ergonomics.
4. Flexible: A flexible backrest in the Eames chair due to the presence of heavy rubber washer. This rubber washer is glued strongly to the backrest. A lumbar support provides the necessary support to this washer.
5. Relaxing: Get rubber coated armrests that are suspended through two arm points. Sit down on the chair and release your hands on the armrest. Does it get any better for a wonderful relaxing experience?
6. Swivels: Creative suit cushion that is sewn with a zipper, unlike other chairs where the cushions are stapled or nailed to the shells. This feature along with the gluing of the plywood shells allows you to swivel around in this chair.
7. Stylish: Style with comfort, something only the Eames chair can provide in spite of it catering to the high-end market. In fact, competitors to Eames who have tried to come up with duplicates have failed to provide style with comfort to users. However, very comfortable replicas can be found on the market.
8. Comforting: Allow your back to rest comfortably without getting worried about your spine and vertebral column with the best backrest possible. Rubber cushioned backrests will do more than enough to take care of your back.
9. Transportable: Take this chair outdoors and relax by baking the sun. Not many chairs allow you to relax indoors as well as outdoors. The Eames Lounge chair is possibly one of the few, which allows you to do this.
10. Exhilarating: The chair size is big enough for you to get your baby sleeping in your arms, or even besides you, comfortably. The Eames chair provides you with the most exhilarating, yet relaxing family experience when it comes to cushion chairs.

The initial designs incorporated a single shell seat and backrest; however, the final design released to the market employs a separate seat and backrest, created from two individual pieces attached by plywood supports in the lumbar section of the chair. • The period of development required, and the design changes implemented by the Eames were both the result issues surrounding the durability of molded plywood. As the plywood had a tendency to split or fracture over time due to frequent use, the Eames perfected their methods before releasing the chairs for production and sale. • The Eames Lounge Chair Wood (LCW) is one of the first chairs ever available which provide flexibility to the individual occupying the chair. The design of the lounger includes the use of shock mounts on the lumbar section of the chair, allowing the backrest to flex with the movements of the seated individual. • The Eames Lounge Chair is only produced by two manufacturers today. European production is exclusive to Vitra, and North American production rights are held by the Herman Miller furniture company. • Early models of Eames Lounge Chairs are prized collectibles for those interested in Modern Design trends. • The New York Museum of Modern Art features a permanent collection of Eames Lounge Chairs for perusal by visitors.
So you own an arne jacobsen egg chair ? What a great investment! You’ll want to be sure to give it good care and these tips will certainly help you out.
• Periodically check to make sure your egg chair isn’t rubbing against a wall. Depending on the wall covering, it could cause marks on your chair. Keep in mind that the tilt of the egg chair is determined by a person’s weight, so some people will cause the chair to tilt more than others.
• If your egg chair is made out of soft fabric, be sure to test any new cleaning supply on an area that isn’t obvious. You want to make sure that the fabric dries without any evidence of being scrubbed or losing its color. Be sure to follow the directions on the cleaning supply container.
• If you purchased a leatherette egg chair , find out if it’s waterproof. If it isn’t waterproof, you might want to consider adding this feature to your chair. It will help prevent potential damage from spills and could prolong the life of the chair. • You can use a mixture of mild soap and water to clean leatherette. Use a soft dampened rag to wash the leatherette with, and use another soft rag to gently wipe the leatherette dry. Be sure to get into the crevices as well. • At least twice a month use a handheld vacuum on your egg chair to be sure to get rid of dust, dander, etc. Even when your chair appears to be clean, it can have a thin build-up that needs to be removed. • The base of the chair can be washed with warm soapy water and dried. If you notice scuff marks from people’s shoes, use a cleaning “eraser” to remove the marks. • Some egg chairs are partial plywood. Use a wood cleaning supply for the plywood. Be sure to spray the cleaning supply on a soft cloth and not directly on the plywood. You’d hate to accidently cause specks from the cleaning supply to end up on the fabric of the chair. • If you purchased a matching ottoman, try to use it with socks, rather than shoes or your bare feet. Shoes can easily soil the ottoman and bare feet can sometimes tug at the fabric. • Use caution as to where to place your egg chair. If it’s near a window, make sure that it won’t be damaged by rain or plants on a window sill. If you have egg chairs in the kitchen, keep them in an area that they aren’t apt to get splattered upon. • If you have a spot on your egg chair that instantly doesn’t lift when you clean it, consider contacting a professional upholstery cleaner. Don’t risk scrubbing and scrubbing the spot which could permanently damage the fabric .
With proper care, your arne jacobsen egg chair will last for many years. The key is to routinely clean and maintain your egg chair.
