Design by Eero Saarinen, 1948.
By Knoll.

Eero Saarinen arrived at the concept for his 1948 Womb Chair when challenged by Florence Knoll to design a chair of supreme comfort – one she could really "curl up in". With its steel rod base and plush upholstered frame, the Womb Chair is designed to facilitate a relaxed sitting posture, providing comfort and a sense of security. The lounger achieves its sculpted, modern, enveloping form from a molded, reinforced fiberglass shell, which is layered in dense foam and topped with separate seat and back cushions in polyester fiber over foam core. Today one of Knoll's most recognizable designs, the Womb Lounge Chair can be customized in frame finishes and a wide range of upholstery options to make this mid-century classic uniquely yours. Complete the exquisite look with the Womb Ottoman.
