I have bought both the blue cashmere egg chair and the swan chair (same color) for our daughters new flat. The design is awesome, you have to arrange delivery yourself as they aren't allow to ship outside Ireland. Sounds as a pain but its super easy and cost 60€ for delivery to Frederiksberg with DSV, took two days.

Great Service, they keep their promise

Helpfull staff!

I was unsecure about choosing Italian leather or go for the Danish cashmere, but got help on their live chat, they really know about their details. 122 Design is truly a heaven if you love cheap high quality stylish furnitures for your home.

Really Good Quality

I ordered my Egg Chair with Black Italian leather last month and have now received it. I'm really please with the seams and the attention to the details. The service was good, there was a nice catalog with the package and how best practice after care. Worth to sign up for their newsletters, they send out good inspiration emails.

Great service!

Had to change the colour after, and that was super easy. I spoke to David on the LiveChat and they quickly changed it. Really good aftercare, appreciate it was easy to get in touch with them and they solved my issue quickly, even on a Sunday. Now I have 4 lovely white chairs in my living room, they look beautiful and just in time for Christmas!

Really good quality, friendly livechat!

Always wanted the y chair for our new kitchen. Great quality (this was actually why I bought from 122 Design) and good support after my order. Smart with the livechat, I used that before I finally made up my mind. I think a lot of online furniture store could learn something from 122 Design!

Virkelig flot!

Eleanor on Jun 09, 2016

But pleasantly purprised with the quality and it looks really nice in our house. I had to arrange my own delivery, it might sounds complicated and expensive but its not. When the product is about to be ready, they contact you. It took me 5 min and cost 39 euro for a lounge chair.

I just want to make everyone aware, that the detailed quality of this lamp is just amazing. There is no difference in this one or what you can buy in e.g. Louis Poulsen, except you are saving a LOT of money. Ohh well, 122 Design is also open in the weekends. 6 weeks from ordered to ready!

My favorite chair. Bought two with my husband for their hunting house. We went for Walnut (a bit more expensive) but really nice quality.

Flot kvalitet

Deborah on Feb 09, 2016

Excellent Service and most importantly: perfect furniture. A bit of wait though.

Just a little tips

Dawn on Jan 09, 2016

I have ordered different designs inspired by the designer Eames and I gotta say there are all individually great, there is a nice finish to each of the designs and it is really easy to assemble. I thought first that all of them would be delivered assembled but the DSW and DAW comes in two part the feet and seat separate, but to be honest there is nothing as simple as those to build. Regarding the service, not a lot of follow up on order maybe this is something 122 Design could improve but apart from that I am just happy!

What separates designer chairs from regular ones you can buy at IKEA? When talking about designer chairs, we think about chairs designed by world-renowned artists, designers and architects and it is this fact that separates them from regular furniture pieces. Designer chairs are highly aesthetic despite being functional, and were designed with broader context in mind – how do they fit into different décor styles, what do they add to the room, what kind of expression is created through the language or shapes, lines, materials and colours.

While designer furniture isn’t strictly related to any country in particular, a large number of world-renowned furniture designers come from Denmark and other Nordic countries due to a long tradition of Scandinavian style and craftsmanship, as well as Danish Modern movement which strove to create unique and highly aesthetic yet functional and practical furniture that can be mass-produced and thus be available to the general public. Keep in mind that if you’re planning to buy a designer chair, you’re not simply paying for the name of the designer – on the contrary, designer chairs are known for their extremely high comfort, practical value and beautiful aesthetics.

With designer furniture, especially when it’s created in the spirit of Organic Functionality and Danish Modern, nothing has been left to chance and the designers have thoroughly thought about every single detail. Behind every designer chair in our offer, there are years of planning, testing and redrawing through which the original designer ensured lasting quality and timeless look of their creations. Thus, it is not without reason that the price exceeds that of the cheaper chairs which are made on assembly lines at factories.

We offer, among many others, these icons of Danish Modern and Organic Functionality:

Designer Lounge Chairs for the Living Room

If you’re looking for an iconic and expressive lounge chair for your living room, there are several popular models which are worth mentioning. The classic and elegant Egg Chair and Swan Chair by Arne Jacobsen were originally designed for a stylish hotel lobby, but which also enrich the décor of many homes both in Denmark and around the world.

However, if you think Jacobsen’s designs are maybe to minimalistic and aren’t a good fit for your cosy and homey style, you might be more interested in something like Papa Bear Chair by Hans Wegner. This icon got its name from a review which described the experience of sitting in this lounge chair like “being hugged by a teddy bear”.

It’s not only the Danish designs that provide comfort and aesthetics at the same time. The lounge chair designed by the famous American duo, Charles and Ray Eames, is an example of an extremely comfortable chair which is perfect to relax in after a long day.

Leather Lounge Chairs

Many designer lounge chairs are made with leather upholstery, including the Swan, the Egg and the Eames Lounge Chair. Leather is very popular and widely used material today since it ensures that the chairs match with very common leather sofas. But, if you’re not into the somewhat cool feel of leather furniture, many of the models in our offer are also sold in fabric and cashmere versions.

Danish Design – Seminal Period

Danish furniture design indisputably played a major role in changing the way the general public views furniture, but also in the development of the furniture design on the international level. Names like Jacobsen, Wegner or Mogensen all received great critical acclaim and gained immense popularity throughout the world.

Functionalism of Danish Designer Chairs

The so-called Golden Age of Danish Furniture Design is the period between, approximately, 1930s and 1970s when a large number of iconic designer chairs and other furniture were produced. The 1950s decade was a seminal decade in the field and was marked by the increasing popularity of functionalist paradigm which, in terms of style, dominated the chair design. The designer chairs produced during this period are widely considered timeless classics which became synonymous with the mid-century modern furniture.

Functionalism was partly a stylistic break with the previous period, the Victorian era, where curlicues, ornaments and opulent details were in focus. In contrast, functionalism was more than just a visual style – it was equally an ideology. The ideas of rationality and progress strongly influenced functionalist paradigm and the designers were perhaps less focused on selling their furniture and viewed their work as a kind of a social program stemming from the socialist mindset.

Functionalism was pioneered by Kaare Klint who worked as a professor at the newly opened furniture design school at the Academy of Fine Arts. Børge Mogensen was strongly influenced by Klint’s perspective, while Hans Wegner and Finn Juhl worked to further develop their distinct style, while never wandering to far from the core ideas of functionalism.

With this in mind, many of the Danish designer chairs were not intended to be as expensive as they are today. Most of the designers strictly adhered to the philosophy that furniture should be designed for the common people and be available for them. However, in practice, these designs went on to be available to the few who could afford it.

Furthermore, this period was marked by the new opportunities presented by industrialization and the discovery of new materials like plastic and fibreglass, but also by collaboration between architects and cabinetmakers which influenced the new wave of Danish furniture designers.

Modernism Chair Design

The philosophy behind functionalism is very close to the fundamental ideas of modernism, with focus on simplicity, clear lines and functionality. This is why the period of the 1950s was retroactively named Danish Modern. This specific style became extremely popular in recent decades and designer chairs are very sought-after to this day.
