Sometimes the original is still the best. Designed in 1958 by Arne Jacobsen, the Egg Chair ($5400) is pretty expensive today, but is also functional history. It swivels and tilts, a rarity in chairs with this much style, and comes covered in Canyon fabric by Kvadrat, which consists of 85 percent new wool, 15 percent nylon. Sophistication, comfort, and striking looks — a true design classic.
