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.
In his time, Finnish architect and designer Eero Saarinen was vociferously criticised for having few defining characteristics, and no fixed style. Now it is evident that this flexibility has been entirely in his favour, 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 realisation 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 fibreglass shell. This will ensure that your Womb Chair and Ottoman set will be a quality addition to your home or office.
Eero Saarinen born 1910 was a Finnish American architect and industrial designer famous for his ability to master varying style. For example, he was accomplished in both simple, sweeping, arching structural curves and seemingly the opposite side of the spectrum, machine-like rationalism. He designed many important pieces of furniture including one of the most famous, the “Womb” chair and ottoman (1948). The “Tulip” or “Pedestal” group (1956), features side and arm chairs, dining, coffee and side tables, as well as a stool. Eero’s designs were extensive, all were highly successful except for the “Grasshopper” lounge chair, which, although in production through 1965, was not a big hit.
