By Knoll.

One of Eero Saarinen's most recognizable chair designs, the Medium Womb Chair was conceived at the request of Florence Knoll, who wanted a chair she could "curl up in".

The Womb Chair is constructed of foam over a molded, reinforced fiberglass shell and includes separate seat and back cushions of polyester fiber with a foam core. Features stainless steel and nylon articulating glides.

Lovely classic chair

By: Suzy P., Homeowner (New York)

I have been waiting to buy the Womb Chair for years. YLiving offered great choices in Knoll fabrics and the medium chair fits perfectly in my home. I ordered it in a bright red colored fabric. The chair is beautiful and makes an elegant statement. Even my black cat thinks it is the perfect place for a nap. I was especially pleased with the delivery service which was professional and courteous.

This slightly smaller Womb chair fit wonderfully in our space

By: Henry, Designer (San Francisco)

This slightly smaller Womb chair fit wonderfully in our space (and fits average sized adults well), whereas the full size Womb would have been overpowering. The upholstery was true to samples, and the chair was delivered on time and without any flaws.

Among the many buildings for which he is known are the Dulles International Airport in Washington, DC, The Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri, and the TWA Terminal at Kennedy International Airport in New York.
