Chair #1

—Designed by Arne Jacobsen

Hello Chair lovers! For my first chair du jour, I thought I'd start with a familiar one, and the inspiration for my blog banner. This funky, mod, curvalicious chair is very fun indeed, and who doesn't love a chair that swivels?

The March 2003 edition of House Beautiful Magazine describes this chair as follows: GREAT DANE   In 1958 Danish designer and architect Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) developed the Swan chair for the lobby and reception area of the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. At the time, the chair was heralded for its innovation: it's all curves. Now, 45 years after its introduction, the Swan gracefully enters the 21st century while upholding its legacy as one of the most popular and recognizable mid-20th century furniture designs.
