Vintage Egg Chairs

The vintage egg chair is one of the most iconic and recognisable furniture pieces to ever grace our homes. The first egg chair was designed by Danish Arne Jacobsen in 1958, and ever since there have been a series of replica designs and iterations by celebrated furniture makers across the globe. Making incredibly stylish and comfortable office chairs, statement living room seats and even bedroom reading chairs, vintage egg chairs are both incredibly versatile and sophisticated. Our range of carefully curated vintage pieces features original Jacobsen chairs as well as more modern designs, like the pod egg chair or swivel egg dining chairs from the 1960 and 1970s onwards. Housing leather-bound beauties, bright and bold suede upholstered eggs and bamboo egg chairs, our range covers a wide range of eclectic styles, materials and finishes.

Adding a vintage egg chair to your seating arrangements will make any space pop, adding heaps of personality and quirky character that is forever in vogue with this absolutely iconic chair design.

Vintage egg chairs for sale in the U.K.

A stylish vintage egg chair is a great way to bring some personality to an otherwise staid home. Sometimes a room can be beautifully decorated, but something is stopping you from connecting with it. Nine times out of ten, that disconnect comes from a lack of personality and inspiration. Nobody wants a living room that feels sterile or a study that would nicely fit into a museum. Sometimes you need to add a little something that makes a room feel unique to you; somewhere that reflects your sense of style and personality.

But you needn't go through the hassle of completely redecorating a room in order to fall in love with it. Purchasing one statement item of furniture, like a modern egg chair, can be enough to give the space some much-needed personality. Few items of furniture possess as much style and charm as a retro egg chair. Head on over to the Vinterior collection to see a range of these fabulous chairs for yourself—including the iconic 60s egg chair and the infamous 70s egg chair.

Why choose a retro egg chair?

Modern egg chairs are much more versatile pieces than they're given credit for. They are able to fit into a range of rooms, blending in with almost any style of decor. A high-backed mid-century egg chair, upholstered in black leather, for example, will make for a grand and comfortable desk chair in a handsomely decorated study. A brightly coloured plastic egg chair, on the other hand, could make for a charming statement when set around the island of a family kitchen.

You can also get vintage egg chairs that would bring some personality to your living room, dining room, or even your garden patio. All of them are comfortable, stylish, and bursting with character.

What to look for in an egg chair

When it comes to egg chairs, vintage and antique pieces are the way to go. For one thing, vintage chairs have proven durability. They may have been made in the 80s, 70s, 60s, or even earlier, and yet the vintage egg chairs in the Vinterior collection are just as stunning and sturdy as they were on the day of their construction; a testament to the level of craftsmanship that went into them, and which is not often seen in modern mass-produced pieces.

What are egg chairs worth?

An egg chair doesn't have to be old to be sought-after and valuable. However, genuine Arne Jacobsen egg chairs can cost upwards of £20,000. A Fritz Hansen egg chair with a footstool can command a similar price and is available with leather upholstery.

However, there are other vintage egg chairs made by different designers that are much more affordable.

Incorporating modern egg chairs into your home

Vintage egg chairs are unique. Each one has its own charm, and its own history to bring to your home. It may have been made by a highly respected mid-century designer now no longer with us, for example, or else made in a style which is no longer often seen in modern furniture design. Either way, going vintage ensures that your furniture is one-of-a-kind.

In this age of increasing environmental awareness, there is no greener way to furnish your home than buying pre-loved pieces. Many items in the Vinterior collection have been repurposed or upcycled, meaning that no part of them will have gone to waste.
