Eero Saarinen for Knoll, Womb Chair & Ottoman
An iconic piece of mid century modern history and furniture, and a timeless addition to any collection; the Womb chair is the ultimate conversation piece.
Designed by Eeero Saarinen for Florence Knoll, who requested Saarinen design a chair comfortable enough for her to curl up in, Saarinen is quoted; "It was designed on the theory that a great number of people have never really felt comfortable and secure since they left the womb."
This large early version (indicated by the black metal legs) has been professionally reupholstered.
Excellent condition. Age appropriate nicks on legs. Fabric is in overall excellent condition with very minor faint spots on one arm, as shown. One larger spot on backside of cushion, as shown.
Chair: 40″ W x 34″ D x 35 1/2″ H with a seat height of 16″ and arm height of 20 1/2″
Ottoman: 25 1/2″ W x 20″ D x 16″ H with a seat height of 16″
