Before & After: Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair

This poor, poor, pitiful Egg Chair - so beautiful, but so in need of some TLC! This is how the poor boy arrived at our workshop.

As we do with all these pieces that have a foam covered fiberglass frame, everything is removed down to the fiberglass (if the chair is older than 2 years, it is nearly impossible to salvage the original foam as it has usually bonded to the fabric - so when the fabric is removed, the foam usually comes off as well).

The chair and ottoman was completely restored, including the metal legs, and reupholstered in cobalt Maharam Hallingdal fabric.
