Upcycled Womb Chairs

It is our passion to bring new life to old pieces. We like to consider what we do a form of recycling, but of course, in a most luxurious manner. We restore iconic designs of the past to be loved and enjoyed for generations. Our upcycled Womb Chairs are some of our most popular designs. “Eero Saarinen designed the groundbreaking Womb Chair at Florence Knoll's request for ‘a chair that was like a basket full of pillows - something she could really curl up in.’ This mid-century classic supports countless positions and offers a comforting oasis of calm hence the name.” —Knoll.

The Womb Chair is a design icon with comfort at its core. We take that to the next level. After undergoing a complete restoration from the frame out, each seat and back cushion gets 100% feather fill for that perfect sink-into, enveloping feeling. With beautiful finishes like sheepskin, boucle, and cowhide, our bespoke Womb Chairs are worth designing a room around.

John O'Hara Art

We are proud to be the exclusive gallery of John O’Hara (American, b. 1963). O'Hara is a self-taught artist from Saint Louis and is known for his large-scale decorative pieces. His medium of choice is encaustic—a mixture of pigments and beeswax and he allows the material to dictate color, line and texture. His work is included in both public and private collections around the world. Michael Kors selected O’Hara’s Tar series for his Milan, Paris, and New York showrooms and London flagship store designed by Pamela Meech. O’Hara’s Brands on Yellow is hanging in the lounge of Maison de Luz, the new luxury hotel by Atelier Ace and designed by AD 100 design firm Studio Shamshiri.
