For this edition of the iconic Egg™ Chair by Fritz Hansen; we decided to have it upholstered in in Red Fame fabric made by Gabriel in Denmark. Fame is an attractive upholstery with a 95% wool and 5% polyamide composition. The fabric is silky smooth thanks to its exclusive use of the finest Worsted Wool; the highest quality wool available. Gabriel's Fame upholstery is a durable fabric with a wearability of 200,000 rating on the Martindale scale. The fabric stretches 9.5% in both directions making it perfect for furniture with round and organic forms such as Arne Jacobsen's Egg Chair.
