I Need this in my life!

On my latest visit to Denmark I went into SAS House in the Centre of Copenhagen, built in 1960 for the Scandinavian Airlines it is considered one of the architect Arne Jabcobsen’s masterpieces.  More than 50 years on the hotel has been completely renovated,only room 606 stands as it was originally commissioned, complete with the egg and swan chair. I was lucky enough to get to see room 606, what an architectural and inspiration!

Now I need one of these in my life, or my home!
