The 1948 unveiling of Eero Saarinen’s iconic Womb Chair was a sign of changing times when ‘lounging’ was becoming socially acceptable, unlike in the decades prior. Saarinen’s organically curved Womb Chair was designed at the request of his friend and colleague, Florence Knoll, who asked for “something I can really curl up in.” Saarinen achieved exactly this and more with a chair designed to create comfort, not solely by use of cushioning, but by the use of contours that create incredible comfort in any position.
Our Womb Chair and Ottoman Reproduction closely match Saarinen’s original design but with upgraded materials available today that were not available in 1948. For example, our exclusive boucle textured fabrics, available in a wide array of colors options, gives it a vibrancy that is matched by a durability to ensure years of stylish comfort in any setting. You can read all this and more in our Womb Chair Comparison Guide.
