Eggs chairs are all the rage right now. Furniture was always decorated with ornate shapes, and carvings, and fancy woods. The busier the better. Then we graduated to a minimalistic style and the egg chair with its soft lines came along. Its sublime blend of form and function, a marriage of coziness and stylishness fits well in modern spaces.
Most people prefer this chair not only for its appealing looks but also for its comfortability and wellness benefits that you can rarely get from other designs. The egg chair is a perfect place to curl up, relax, read, and meditate. Its ergonomically sound design supports improved posture and alleviates strain in the back, shoulders, and neck. It has high sides and cradling, cushioned seat perfect for prolonged sitting.
Cradling, womb-like, and insanely sculptural, nothing tops the ingenuity of the famous Egg chair. Their peculiar, womb-like shape was born from a mid-century experience and supreme vision of its creator. Namely, they have that quirky, structural appeal, which made them an instant classic. With a thousand designs, there will definitely be an egg chair to fit your style.
