Closer Looks: Saarinen's Womb Chair

When Florence Knoll asked her dear friend and colleague, Eero Saarinen, for “a chair that is like a basket full of pillows,” the Finnish architect got to work.  The end result was his famous modern icon, the Womb Chair. Saarinen realized comfort comes from the shape of a chair, not the cushioning, and he incorporated his signature flowing curves to make his Womb Chair one to curl up in and is as comfortable as a basket full of pillows.

Our Womb Chair and Ottoman Reproduction is crafted with a molded fiber-reinforced polymer internal shell, stainless steel legs, and is upholstered in our exclusive modern boucle fabric in a wide variety of color options.  The remarkably high quality of our materials ensures an added level of durability Eero simply did not have available to him during his time.

Come check it out any of three showroom locations in ChicagoBellingham or Dallas!
