The Finer Details
First introduced in the mid-1940s by Finnish-American architect and designer Eero Saarinen, the Womb Chair is a modern piece of functional, sophisticated art. The coziest of designer creations, it’s the perfect addition to any space in need of peace and calm.

Dual designer inspiration
Inspired by his designer friend Florence Knoll, who challenged Saarinen with the task of designing a cozy, relaxing chair worthy of curling up in, Saarinen didn’t waste any time creating just what Knoll had asked for. Gleaning its name from the shape of the chair and the way it cradles the human form, the Womb Chair is perhaps the comfiest, coziest seating solution in designer history.
Create your perfect oasis
While the Womb Chair is certainly worthy of praise on its own, we’d be remiss not to recommend pairing it with the coordinating settee and stool. With the ability to instantly add an air of contentment and charm to any space, you can’t go wrong with any of these peace-promoting pieces.
BUILT FOR LONGEVITY
In addition to creating comforting furnishings, Saarinen demanded quality, only crafting his creations from the finest materials available. With proper care, this piece is certain to be passed down through multiple generations.
Really enjoy the chair. Is there something that I can use to protect the material to keep it clean?
Lovely chair and the price ...
Lovely chair and the price was just right. I will probably order the matching stool at some point. The chair is very comfy on its own though, so I don't feel like I'm missing out.
I am so excited to ...
I am so excited to own this chair and stool. I don't think I'll ever leave the house again! I'm in love with this beautiful set.
My chair was delivered yesterday. ...
My chair was delivered yesterday. It's gorgeous! I knew from the description and reviews that it would be comfortable, but I had no idea HOW comfortable. It's like curling up on a cloud.
This is my dream chair. ...
This is my dream chair. It's so comfortable and well-constructed. I don't think I'll ever get tired of it.
I highly recommend this chair ...
I highly recommend this chair purely for relaxing. It is the most comforting chair. I understand why it's called the Womb Chair. I had mine in my office, but I decided to bring it home. For me, it's a much better lounge chair than it is a work chair. It lulls me to sleep.
Eero Saarinen’s penchant for perfection made him an impeccable designer. The Finnish-American architect opted for a sculptural approach when it came to his furniture designs. The aesthetic worked for him, a he grew obsessed with achieving the perfect curve or line.
Saarinen’s design process was a long and tedious one. He was so tuned into the details that he’d build hundreds of versions of a piece until it was visually and functionally flawless. The designer’s time was certainly not wasted; his innovative designs include the iconic Tulip Armchair, the Tulip Table and the Womb Chair.
Envisioning the placement of a piece proved to be a key to Saarinen’s great success. "Always design a thing by considering it in its next larger context - a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city plan," he once said.
