A favorite of the Forsyth design team! We collected this beauty for its icon status.
“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.
Our master upholsterers went down to the bones of the chair, removing all old foam and replacing with new foam. Luxurious down feathers generously fill the back and seat cushions. Our designers chose beautiful Loro Piana alpaca wool for upholstery.
Why We Love This Material | This beautiful fabric is the pinnacle of luxury. We love the long fibers that mimic the look of a natural hair on hide. And the alpaca wool blend is just as soft as cashmere. This colorway, the light grey, resembles that of a very fine Italian-made men's suit. Check out this sofa and these pair of chairs we also restored in the same material.
