In 1958 Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) designed The Swan™ for the lobby and lounge areas at the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. The chair became a classic design and has been produced at Fritz Hansen ever since. You can choose a chair in leather or fabric, but the base is always star shaped in satin polished aluminium. By the way, the chair in the first photo is vintage and has been upholstered in mink.
Yesterday I was telling my older daughter about the chair. When I told her the price was about 3000-5000 euros, depending on the material, she asked: "Why spend so much on a chair when you can use the money to buy so many other things?"
Interesting question. I don't know about you but to me that is money well spent. That curvy beauty is more than welcome in my home.
Have a fine day!
