Inspired by the announcement this week that HOWE is reissuing Arne Jacobsen’s 1955 Tongue chair, we visit 7 homes from the pages of Dwell that incorporate the Danish modernist’s designs.
The ever-changing daylight, plus the use of curtains and lighting options, means that Ahlgren and Lökaas enjoy a variety of different atmospheres.

The built-in sofa was designed by CCS Architecture and fabricated by San Francisco-based <a href="http://krollfurniture.com/">Kroll Furniture</a>. Barbara Vickroy, CCS's interior designer, picked the fabrics and furnishings in the home. In the foreground

We’d never forget the (arguably) most popular Jacobsen design: the Egg chair. In this Palo Alto, California, residence built by architect Cass Calder Smith, the iconic design holds court in a sitting room.
