The chair that splits people's opinion, we had a nice discussion about this on Living Etc's BitchingEtc forum one afternoon!!.. Some love some hate. I am of the love, Yes I know you see it everywhere, every trendy cafe or gallery, but this a testament to its design, its so versatile and comfortable. I use mine as a desk chair and sit on it alot, no back pain or discomfort. I trully think it's one of Jacobsen's masterpieces.

  1. I've never seen the Jacobsen chair in Leather with arms! Very cool. I like the rocker next to it as well - it's been on my wish list for a long time.

  2. thanks lushpad, i bought it in auction in Denmark a couple of years back, it is wearing very well. I also bought the rocker about four years ago from US when the dollar was low.. I cannot believe the prices they are going for now!!!!1

  3. I think it's very cool... but I have to say I'm loving your desk more. Bet your house really is a treasure trove!
