The Model 70 Chair, now known as the Womb Chair, was designed in 1948 by Eero Saarinen and is generally considered among the ten best mid-century modern furniture designs.
Our version of the Saarinen Womb Chair is made of molded fiber-reinforced internal shell, not a plastic shell, then covered with sculpted with North America sourced foam that conforms to the mold. What really sets our version of the Womb Chair apart from the cheaper replicas on the market is our upholstery. We spent over 18 months searching for the right boucle fabric for our chairs. Going directly to a North American mill, we designed the perfect boucle for this chair. Made of 100% polyester made from recycled plastic, this fabric has a textured or boucle surface, is extremely durable (250K double rubs), is water and stain resistant and has environmentally green stain guard built into the material. Also, we use solid stainless steel bars for the legs, not chrome plated steel, and have adjustable feet. With our own in-house powder coating here in Bellingham, we can also powder coat the legs in a variety of colors. Read the our Womb Chair Comparison Guide.
