Swan Chair 50th Anniversary

Arne Jacobsen’s Swan chair is no ugly duckling—especially when upholstered in swan-white leather, finished with a pearl-white base, and decorated with a sterling silver bracelet and pendant marking the chair’s 50th anniversary.



The 1,958 limited-edition Swans—the number a nod to the year that the Danish architect designed the Swan and Egg chairs to outfit his new SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen—will be on sale Nov. 1, 2008. If the release—and subsequent speedy sell-out—of the 50th anniversary Egg chair was any indication, it will be quite some time before the iconic chair sings its swan song.
