Imagine being able to take a seat in this iconic chair? I got the chance when I last visited the TWA Hotel where they have heaps of vintage style areas to play around in. I have to be honest, getting out of this style of chair was not easy for me but it was really comfortable. I can definitely see it as the type of chair where I would want to bring a book and get cozy.

This Scandinavian aesthetic of space age furniture reminds me of the style of furniture created in the Swedish company, IKEA. Clean lines, simple styles, but with a retro edge. The ball chair was created in 1963 by Finnish furniture designer Eero Aarnio and the egg shaped chair was created in 1968 by Danish industrial designer Henrik Thor-Larsen. These style of chairs were the most popular in the sixties and can still be found in some furniture stores like, Modholic.

These style of chairs are a conversation piece and also incredibly timeless. They can transport you back to 1966 with ease and endless comfort all the while still be chic. What do you think about these sixties space age egg and ball chairs?
