Ok, this isn’t quite a copy of the design classic, but the Tirup chair from Ikea has obviously taken its design influence from Arne Jacobsen’s Egg Chair.
Designed by Carl Öjerstam and available in a black/white or black/yellow colour combination, it’s made from moulded high-resilient polyurethane foam, which should mean it keeps its shape – and offer a comfortable place to sit. It’s also got a chrome swivel base and a 100 per cent cotton cushion cover.
If you can’t afford a design classic, this should keep you going until you can. It retails for £215.
