Few pieces of furniture can evoke the same notions of relaxed luxury as a simple egg chair. Let’s look at how you could style your home decor with this trendy piece of occasional furniture.
The egg chair we speak of is not the Classic Designer Egg chair created in 1958 by Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen. We’re referring to the suspended wicker or woven-effect egg chair familiar to those with memories from the 60s and even the 70s.
Nevertheless, it has inspired the outdoor furniture styles we associate egg chairs with today.
This retro style has made a surprising comeback in the 2020s as a patio staple and is also favoured in many GenZ bedrooms.
The egg chair is the perfect accessory from which you could enjoy a sleepy afternoon on a hot balmy summer's day and unwind…
Most egg chairs come in wicker-effect and woven styles; they make for the perfect outdoor furniture accessory. Some types come with their standalone suspension system, functioning as a mini swing.
We love the soothing effect of its cocoon-shaped, womb-like structure. Suspended or hanging egg chairs enhance this feeling even further as the gentle swing creates a Proustian cradle effect.
The perfect place for a little one to settle down for a nap, don’t you think?
It is probably the most inviting piece of statement furniture out there. And now, more affordable and easy to install than ever.
There are many places in your home that a well-positioned egg chair could enhance. It is a versatile statement piece that adds a touch of inviting glamour to your home!
It’s the perfect accessory for any covered patio lending a relaxed, loungey vibe to any corner of an outdoor deck, verandah or patio space.
If you have a more extensive property with more substantial outdoor structures, you could suspend it from a sturdy pergola.
You could even hang it from a well-structured gazebo to give yourself countless soothing moments at nighttime swinging away under the stars on a sultry evening.
If you live in a smaller property like an apartment - it functions just as well in your balcony suspended in the corner. Use it as an excellent excuse to enjoy the sunset or the view from your balcony.
This furniture style has also been featured in teenage girls' bedrooms lately, as evidenced by its almost ubiquitous presence in every teen movie or TV series on Netflix…
That is a perfect spot for watching anything online or attending an online class.
Egg chairs can also be the ideal excuse for turning a corner of any den or lounge area into a cosy reading corner.
If you have a large hallway with a blank corner screaming for attention or a generous landing with the opportunity for a resting place, then it's the perfect little statement piece of furniture to enhance the blank space. Create a little reading nook in an unused space.
If you had a fixed location for the landline - this would make the perfect accompaniment next to the phone.
Egg chairs are perfect for enjoying summer weather outdoors, so here are some ways to make this an oasis of relaxation.
These versatile pieces are not just good in warm weather. If you source a portable unit, you can move your egg chair indoors and turn this chill-out zone outdoors into a cosy, snug indoors for sinking into.
Style them indoors in the following ways:
There's more than one egg chair model to source. You may decide to suspend an egg chair directly from the ceiling ( in which case, you need to check the load-bearing weight and use suitable fixings).
Alternatively, you can take the more accessible, portable route of using a standalone self-mounted model.
Most egg chairs are made with a natural woven rattan or wicker material - alternatively, synthetic rattan or treated/ coated rattan may be used.
