Product Story

In his time, Finnish architect and designer Eero Saarinen was criticized for having no fixed style. Now it is clear that this flexibility was simply intelligent design, enabling him to adapt to the customer and situation. For instance, his classic Womb Chair and Ottoman have been created with the end user in mind. The set owes much of its popularity to the simple, sweeping structure with indented armrests and movable cushions that enable you to lounge, sit upright or slouch, to the front, side, or whichever way you desire. This reproduction is crafted from hand sewn natural cashmere stitched to high density foam surrounding a true fiberglass shell. This will ensure that your Womb Chair and Ottoman set will be a quality addition to your home or office.

What is Cashmere Wool?
Cashmere wool fiber is obtained from "Cashmere goats.” Cashmere goats produce a double fleece of a fine, soft undercoat of hair mixed with a straighter, coarser outer coat. For the fine undercoat to be used, it must be de-haired. De-hairing is a process that separates the coarse hair from the fine hair. After this process, the resulting premium “cashmere” is ready to be dyed and converted into yarn.

What is Bouclé Fabric?
Bouclé is a fabric with length of loops of similar size that range from tiny circlets to larger curls. To make bouclé, at least two strands are combined, with the tension on one strand being much looser than the other as it is being plied. Bouclé in wool is a long lasting fabric that maintains its interesting and inviting texture for years.

About the Designer

To his detriment or benefit, Finnish American designer Eero Saarinen was famous for his flexible style. He believed that his clients were “co-creators,” which led him to adjust his approach to design according to what they wanted instead of strictly adhering to his aesthetic. Despite the criticism this led to, he remains one of the most well-known designers of the mid-century period. 

Saarinen’s architectural and product design style varied from pared-down, curving silhouettes to cold rationalism. His work was present from bomb disassembly manuals to Time magazine to countless editorials. 

He used his sculpture and architecture training to make some of the most recognizable modern pieces, such as the Tulip Table series. Saarinen was a leader of his time.
