Identical with Original

I have bought both the blue cashmere egg chair and the swan chair (same color) for our daughters new flat. The design is awesome, you have to arrange delivery yourself as they aren't allow to ship outside Ireland. Sounds as a pain but its super easy and cost 60€ for delivery to Frederiksberg with DSV, took two days.

Great Service, they keep their promise

The quality is amazing, it was ready after 6 weeks (not 6 months!). Really happy with the chair.

Helpfull staff!

I was unsecure about choosing Italian leather or go for the Danish cashmere, but got help on their live chat, they really know about their details. 122 Design is truly a heaven if you love cheap high quality stylish furnitures for your home.

Really Good Quality

I ordered my Egg Chair with Black Italian leather last month and have now received it. I'm really please with the seams and the attention to the details. The service was good, there was a nice catalog with the package and how best practice after care. Worth to sign up for their newsletters, they send out good inspiration emails.

Great service!

Had to change the colour after, and that was super easy. I spoke to David on the LiveChat and they quickly changed it. Really good aftercare, appreciate it was easy to get in touch with them and they solved my issue quickly, even on a Sunday. Now I have 4 lovely white chairs in my living room, they look beautiful and just in time for Christmas!

Really good quality, friendly livechat!

Always wanted the y chair for our new kitchen. Great quality (this was actually why I bought from 122 Design) and good support after my order. Smart with the livechat, I used that before I finally made up my mind. I think a lot of online furniture store could learn something from 122 Design!

Virkelig flot!

People who pay the original price, must feel stupid. There is no difference, and the quality is really amazing at 122 Design


Elizabeth on Jul 09, 2016

Really good quality

High quality

Eleanor on Jun 09, 2016

But pleasantly purprised with the quality and it looks really nice in our house. I had to arrange my own delivery, it might sounds complicated and expensive but its not. When the product is about to be ready, they contact you. It took me 5 min and cost 39 euro for a lounge chair.

Great support!

Dorothy on May 09, 2016

I just want to make everyone aware, that the detailed quality of this lamp is just amazing. There is no difference in this one or what you can buy in e.g. Louis Poulsen, except you are saving a LOT of money. Ohh well, 122 Design is also open in the weekends. 6 weeks from ordered to ready!

Same as original, just cheaper

My favorite chair. Bought two with my husband for their hunting house. We went for Walnut (a bit more expensive) but really nice quality.

Flot kvalitet

Deborah on Feb 09, 2016

Excellent Service and most importantly: perfect furniture. A bit of wait though.

Just a little tips

Dawn on Jan 09, 2016

I have ordered different designs inspired by the designer Eames and I gotta say there are all individually great, there is a nice finish to each of the designs and it is really easy to assemble. I thought first that all of them would be delivered assembled but the DSW and DAW comes in two part the feet and seat separate, but to be honest there is nothing as simple as those to build. Regarding the service, not a lot of follow up on order maybe this is something 122 Design could improve but apart from that I am just happy!

Poul M. Volther's Corona Chair

Poul M. Volther's Corona Chair

There are no products in this collection.

The Corona Chair was designed my Poul M. Volther in 1964 and is available in several variants of cashmere and leather, in colours such as black, white and red. In addition, some special editions were produced, like the anniversary model in brown natural leather upholstery.

Since its release, the Corona Chair was instantly recognized for its light, yet sculptural and striking design which ensured its popularity and place in countless movies, fashion series and music videos. So, buying Corona Chair original can be rather costly and that’s why many choose to buy a second-hand model instead. However, as with all second-hand products, you don’t have any guarantee of the condition of the chair. So, safer and still cheaper option is to buy Corona replica.

In any case, you can choose between different materials and colours to find the model that fits best in your home or office and matches your personal style. If you’re into vivid and bold colours, you can buy Corona Chair with wool upholstery since these models are produced in a variety of bright colours. If you’re looking for a more classic and elegant look, you can choose leather Corona Chair in black or white.

This iconic piece of contemporary furniture fits perfectly in many different living rooms – maybe you want this light and artistic design to embellish the atmosphere around your coffee table, in a nook or along the wall in front of the window, with lots of light and space around it so that the design may really come into its own.


Corona Footstool

The organic shape of the Corona Chair that mimics human anatomy with its ribs and spine ensures great comfort, but if you want to take it even further and relax as much as possible, you can add a matching footstool to your Corona Chair. The footstool can be purchased with the chair or you can buy it separately at a later time. Keep in mind that even without the footstool, this iconic piece of mid-century furniture design is extremely comfortable.

Second-Hand Corona Chair

One of the advantages of buying a second-hand model is that it has a patina which gives the chair a unique charm. However, the biggest disadvantage is that you cannot be sure what condition the chair is in and, consequently, how long it will last. In addition, when buying a second-hand model, you must make the time to keep an eye on various websites and auctions and possibly drive back home empty-handed if the model does not meet your standards.

Dimensions of the chair?

The chair has been designed with following dimensions:

Corona chair dimensions
Height 97 cm
Width 88 cm
Depth 82 cm
Seat height 42 cm


Corona Chair on Sale

Due to its popularity, it’s extremely unlikely that Corona Chair will be on sale, so buying a second-hand is far more realistic option if you don’t have the budget for the original Knoll Corona Chair. Still, it never hurts to look around, so even if it’s very unlikely, you can still maybe get lucky and find the original model on sale somewhere.

Corona Chair Cost

The cost depends on the model you choose with leather models being more expensive than cashmere ones. Also, while the original is rather costly, the Corona chair replica can be bought for a fraction of the original price. While the second-hand average price is hard to precisely determine due to various factors like the seller and the condition, the original price is around 25.000kr (£2900 / $3775).

Anniversary Edition

A special edition of the Corona chair was designed for the anniversary of the original release with cognac coloured natural leather. Despite the immense popularity of the original model, the special and limited variants add diversity to the Corona Chair family and are extremely sought-after by dedicated collectors. The cost of the anniversary edition is around 50.000kr (£5800 / $7550).

A Child of the 1960s Danish Furniture Design

Poul M. Volther designed his Corona chair in 1964 and it was instantly recognized and gained a huge popularity in short time after its release. The chair got its name from the wreath or corona that can be seen around the Sun during a full solar eclipse.

As the story goes, Volther and the furniture manufacturer Erik Jørgensen were in the final stages of producing the Corona Chair on a summer day in the early 1960s when the full solar eclipse occurred and inspired the designer and the manufacturer to give this lounge chair its name.

Designed in three pieces which seem to float on the steel frame, Poul Volther’s Corona Chair has a light and beautiful expression, with the organic shape, modern look and playful colours which are synonymous with Volther’s designs.

Poul M. Volther's Eye for the Details

Qualified as a cabinetmaker, Volther had a special eye for details and was devoted to producing high-quality furniture, both in terms of materials and design. This is particularly evident in the Corona chair which is widely considered a masterpiece of Volther’s work.

The designer supplemented his cabinetmaker education by also studying at the Danish Design School where he worked as a professor for a number of years and influenced hundreds of young designer. In that sense, while the Corona Chair remains Volther’s most iconic piece, his influence marked generations of designers and his fingerprints are set in many homes and offices, both in Denmark and throughout the world.
