Great article! I'm currently decorating my living room and want to add a white leather egg chair to the room as a statement piece. I have always loved this chair and originally got my inspiration from a office lobby in London.

Yes, that's really great. I love the last photo: "design central". I kinda want to ask if it's actually real: does anyone really get to live with Gehry, Le Corbusier, Noguchi, Saarinen and Jacobsen all in one room? I'm quite keen on the walnut leather versions of the Egg chair myself but fortunately they're sufficiently far beyond my budget that I don't have to wrestle with any vegetarian leanings my conscience may have!
