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.
