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.
Genuine Imported Leathers
In order to distinguish Rove's line of genuine imported full leathers from generic leathers offered elsewhere that make similar claims of quality, we highly encourage you to request free swatches from each store and compare them side by side!
We are confident you will see the difference our quality makes. Rove products are designed to last for years thus it is only fitting that great attention is owed to the material and craftsmanship of each piece.
Important: We do our best to provide quality pictures but leather colors will look different under different lighting. Pictures shown on the website should be viewed as an approximation under studio lighting, for accurate color comparison please request our swatches.
In his time, Finnish architect and designer Eero Saarinen was vociferously criticized for having few defining characteristics, and no fixed style. Now it is evident that this flexibility has been entirely in his favor, enabling him to adapt to the customer and situation. For instance, his classic Womb Chair and Ottoman have been designed with the end user in mind.
The Womb Chair and Ottoman set owes much of its popularity to Saarinen’s realization of the variety of positions in which people relax. The simple, sweeping structure with indented armrests and movable cushions enables you to lounge, sit upright or slouch, to the front, side, or whichever way you desire.
This reproduction consists of natural cashmere wool, hand sewn and 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.
Eero Saarinen was known for his wide variety of styles, from geometric rationalism to curving silhouettes. His most famous works are the Womb Chair and Ottoman and the Tulip Table and Chair series. Fully entrenched in peak of the modern mid century movement, he was even friends with famed designers Charles and Ray Eames and Florence Knoll. Though he often worked in with his father, Eero was well established in his own right. He was contracted for projects for the White House, JFK Airport, the Gateway Arch and Dulles International Airport, among many others.
