Spring is here and with it, so is Easter…and what would Easter be without its defining symbol – Easter eggs. Because egg is the symbol of rebirth and new beginning, the world’s fascination with it dates back to ancient times, crossing cultures, religions and geographic locations. The world of modern furniture, spearheaded by some of the most well known design masterminds, is no different and has been celebrating this holiday and its many symbolic connotations with its own unique interpretations of the Egg by incorporating its shape into everything from modern sofas and contemporary chairs to lighting and accessories.
