Iconic Swan Chair

Here we go, first mini history lesson, hope you enjoy...

The Gorgeous Swan Chair...

An Iconic, ergonomic chair designed by Danish Architect and Designer, Arne Jacobsen in 1958. It was originally designed for the Raddisson SASA Royal Hotel in Copenhagen but is now regarded a classic, still in production today. The chair along with a sister sofa are still being made today by the original Republic of Fritz Hansen Manufacturers in Denmark.

Swan Sofa

The Swan Chair is one Jacobsen’s most well known pieces of furniture.  Its organic shape features all curves and no straight lines mimicking the swan's graceful shape. This was a very cutting edge design for the time and required thoughtful production techniques.

The original designs from the 50’s could be found in black and white leather. Currently you can pick up one of these chairs in a vast variety of different fabrics and colors. I even came across one upholstered in shearling for the limited 50th anniversary addition!

50th Anniversary Addition. Cozy!
