Womb Chair

3 roundup


Eero Saarinen designed the Womb Chair after being challenged by Florence Knoll to design a chair she could curl up in. The aptly named Womb Chair envelops the sitter in comfort; it is the perfect shape and form for relaxed sitting. The chair is manufactured by applying foam molded over a fiberglass shell. The chair is still produced by Knoll to the original specifications right here in the U.S.A.

The Womb Chair is the single most iconic piece of Scandinavian modern design. It is also one of the most coveted pieces of Mid-Century Modern furniture.

The current list price of the original Womb Chair in classic boucle is $2,645. It is also available in mohair for $3,648 or with leather ranging from $4,199 to $5,898.
