This is a vintage (post 80s) Arne Jacobsen, for Fritz Hansen, Egg Chair, recently returned from Denmark after being reupholstered by Fritz Hansen Design in Kvadrat - Tonus 4 - Deep Green Wool Fabric.
I purchased this chair via a reputable auction house here in NZ. When the Chair arrived I realised it was not the original upholstery and I panicked! Being an avid collector of authentic mid century pieces I knew what I had to do.
I tried having it authenticated via a local distributor, however Fritz Hansen in Denmark wouldn’t authenticate the Chair until it was viewed in person...in Denmark.
So off the Chair went (it’s in Dunedin) to AKL and then on to Denmark!
Over a year later the Chair arrived back to me, reupholstered in a beautiful, rich, dark green colour that you will never see before on this Chair design. More famous for the red colour, the green was more calming and subtle for my space.
Sadly, the Chair became a burden on the pocket and now must go.
The price reflects a good portion of what was invested in this long refurbishment, however I will be taking a considerable loss.
Not just in cost, but a piece that I must let go from my collection.
This auction is for ONLY SERIOUS collectors. I will know you are, if you truly are one.
I have all the original documentation that was given to me and the packaging from Denmark to get it safely to its new home. Please click here to ask a question
