Decorating With Eggs

Eggs have always held a certain fascination for me. When I was 12, my favourite T-shirt featured the Get Crackin’ logo. I’ve wanted an Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair from the time I was wearing that shirt. And in my perfect home someday, I’ll spend lazy afternoons soaking in an egg-shaped tub. Symbolic of new beginnings, the motif is especially fitting in spring, but I think the graphic shape offers grade-A style anytime.

Arne Jacobsen’s fabulous Egg Chair steals the spotlight, even from Marilyn Monroe.
