Must have for the Womb chair
By: Nick, Renter (Durham, NC)
I of course got this to go with the Womb chair I bought at the same time. Please read my review about the chair. Overall satisfied but had trouble with the fabric I fell in love with not being available after thinking it was from seeing it as being a selection on yliving. Check to make sure it is.
Fabulous Chair, Great Service
