Named for the way it hugs the body, our Eero Saarinen style Womb Chair is a design icon. From its soft, inviting curves to its comfortable cushioning and tubular steel legs, every detail has been meticulously replicated. The chair is constructed from a fibreglass shell covered with foam and then encased in either soft cashmere or top grain aniline leather. The legs are made from shiny stainless steel. The chair comes in a wide choice of colours to suit every taste.
THE STORY BEHIND THE EERO SAARINEN STYLE WOMB CHAIR
Eero Saarinen designed the Womb Chair in 1946, a full 8-years before he created the Eero Saarinen Tulip Armchairand Eero Saarinen Tulip Table. Eero Saarinen came up with the idea of the Womb Chair after Florence Knoll challenged him to make her chair she could curl up in. Florence Knoll must have been delighted with the result as the Womb Chair certainly lives up to her challenge. It offers pure comfort with plenty of room to tuck up your legs and relax.

The variety of colours lets you bring your own unique style to any room. Go for colourful bright red, green or orange. Want a moment of calm? Try a soothing camel, sand or cream.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER
1910 (Finland) -1961 (United States)
A Finnish American architect and industrial designer, Eero Saarinen took a sculptural approach to furniture design. He was a perfectionist who was obsessed with getting the perfect curve or line, often building hundreds of models to ensure he got it right. His attention to detail paid off. His work is now iconic and includes design classics such as the Tulip Armchair, the Tulip Table and the Womb Chair.
"Always design a thing by considering it in its next larger context - a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city plan."
