Once you get the cute seating selection, you'll want to ensure that the surroundings complement this statement piece. 

"Position the egg chair in a strategic location that highlights its unique shape," Nina recommends. "Enhance the chair's appeal by layering soft cushions and throws in vibrant hues or chic neutrals. Experiment with different textures like faux fur or linen to add depth and comfort."

As is the case with any boho decor ideas, sprinkle some greenery around the piece and don't neglect the lighting — it sets the tone. 

"Lanterns, string lights, or outdoor rugs can further enhance the ambiance, creating a cozy retreat," Nina adds.

With that in mind, who's ready for the eggs to venture from the kitchen and into the backyard?!

It is a nest from which to launch lives and make memories for generations to come. Her use of diverse textures and elegant blends of stone, wood, and other natural materials are part of her signature style.


Can egg chairs be used inside?
