Our Model 70 Ottoman is inspired by the Eero Saarinen"s Womb Ottoman that goes with the Model 70 Lounge Chair which we also sell. As sculptor and architect Eero Saarinen"s work appears to seamlessly adapt to directions of the International Style and Expressionism. Saarinen"s collaboration with Charles Eames resulted in a series of prize-winning furniture designs including the Museum of Modern Arts 1940 Organic Design in Home Furnishings competition. The Womb chair design continues to be popular today.
Our Model 70 Lounge Chair Ottoman is inspired by the Womb Chair is faithful to the original design, with a few minor differences. For instance, we use a molded fiber-reinforced internal shell, not a plastic shell, then sculpt the North America sourced foam over that. Our legs are stainless steel, not chrome plated steel. Our upholstery is what sets our version apart from all others on the market. Our fabric is made in North America, and is 100% polyester made from recycled plastic. This fabric is a textured or boucle surface and is extremely durable (250K double rubs) and is water and stain resistant.
