In 1948, Eero Saarinen’s Womb Chair and Ottoman revolutionized the concept of comfort through the contouring shape rather than through extra cushioning. One subject of debate among my fellow Womb Chair enthusiasts is which direction Saarinen intended for the trapezoidal ottoman to face. Some claim it is the narrower side that is meant to face out while others vehemently claim it is the wider side.
I will keep my personal preference to myself on this one. Perhaps, after so many decades of having this debate, it is time to say there is no right or wrong direction; it is whichever direction you find most comfortable (and I think Eero would agree too).
Our Womb Chair and Ottoman Reproduction has been constructed to the same dimensions of the original design and enhanced with superior materials to ensure this ‘basket full of pillows’ will last for longer than ever previously thought possible.
