Forsyth Bespoke Womb Chair and Ottoman in New Zealand Sheepskin, Ivory

About the Item

A favorite of the Forsyth design team! We have an incredible collection of vintage chairs and design icons waiting for a new life. Our upcycled womb chairs are some of our most popular designs. This womb chair and ottoman will be made to order with the finest sheepskins from New Zealand. Please note, as each hide is unique, the finished chair will also be unique. Images show a womb chair and ottoman we recently finished. Custom Made to Order. Please allow 10-12 weeks for re-upholstery and restoration of a vintage womb chair and ottoman in New Zealand sheepskin. Are you interested in black legs? We can offer a choice of leg finish. We also have smoke taupe or tan available in the sheepskin colorway. “Eero Saarinen designed the ground-breaking womb chair at Florence Knoll's request for ‘a chair that was like a basket full of pillows, something she could really curl up in.’ This mid-century Classic supports countless positions and offers a comforting oasis of calm hence the name.” ~ Knoll. There is nothing better than lounging in this incredible design by Eero Saarinen. It is, in our opinion, the most comfortable chair on Earth. The addition of our hand-selected sheepskins and shearlings and down-feather inserts puts it on another level of comfort and coziness.
