The sensual pressure-molded veneer curves of the Series 7 chair helped propel Danish designer Arne Jacobsen to the forefront of the mid-century modern design movement.

Craftsmanship and timeless beauty: Wrap one of these up, and your giftee will have something for life -- you can't get more sustainable than that. Oh, and you can also mention that a copy of the chair is in one of the most famous nude photo series ever.

While it's still produced today by Fritz Hansen, pick one up on eBay for a fraction of the price. Avoid the ones that say "Series 7-style" to avoid the fakes. (Series 7 Chair Through eBay, Prices Vary)
