Grey Knoll Original Eero Saarinen Womb Chair and Ottoman
This beautiful, original Eero Saarinen Womb Chair and Ottoman really captures the essence of Knoll’s vision, to produce a chair that you could curl up into. The chair was designed to be the most comfortable lounge chair available and it has proven to have been a major success since it was introduced in the late 1940s.
Constructed from fiberglass, the chair was revolutionary. Light yet durable, the moulding capabilities of this remarkable substance meant the chair could be made from 1 piece and, more importantly, could be moulded to its unique shape designed to support the body no matter which way you sit in it.
As its name would suggest, this chair was designed to create a sense of calm and comfort, allowing one to curl up into it. This particular version has been rejuvenated with grey cashmere, creating a luxurious finish to this iconic chair.
A carefully reconditioned version of this iconic chair using the same original style of fabric it is in excellent condition.
An original Womb Chair always attracts interest; such an iconic piece, it is unsurprising. Saarinen’s work has always been highly appreciated and his furniture has always been coveted. This particular chair, whilst reconditioned, should always retain a high rate of interest and should even see its value rise over time.
