Good quality, Good value
We wanted to purchase a womb chair for our living room but weren't prepared to drop $$$$ on an original. This reproduction is great quality: solid build, comfortable style and high quality fabric (we went with the bright red wool and are happy with it). Highly recommend! Arrived quickly and in pristine shape.

Happy and Unhappy
Chair is great color and style, just the look I wanted. However it took 4, yes 4, months to get here...not the 8-10 weeks I was told. Plus, it was sent FedEx. FedEx delivery men are NOT allowed to come into your house so I was delivered a pallet loaded with all my furniture (I ordered the chair above, matching ottoman, dining table with 6 chairs and 3 barstools), boxed and wrapped in plastic. It was basically dumped in my garage for me to deal with. I am a single, 69 yr old I unboxed what I could handle myself and then had to call in friends to help with the rest. I bought lots of furniture for my new house and NO ONE dumped the furniture on me, it was all handled by quality people who unpackaged the furniture and set it up. I like all the pieces I ordered from Inmod but I will NOT buy from them again because of their delivery arrangements.

This chair could never pass for the price as originally listed It arrived with one leg out of alignment and the fabric is thin, the space blue is more like denim. We were told we should have ordered swatches first. Lesson learned, but I found this on the last day of a sale and it had great reviews.

Not quite the original but can't beat the price
We own an authentic Saarinen Womb chair and ottoman and love it - super comfortable, large (my husband is > 6'6" and fits comfortably) but not overwhelming - and wanted another one for our beach cabin. As it is a weekend place, the Inmod version was in our price range and we had been pleased with the past purchase of a different Inmod item.

We are happy with this set. It is smaller than the original but seems similarly comfortable. Some minor details are not quite as nice but, for the price, you are getting a quality, modern chair and ottoman.

We special ordered in nighttime blue and are happy with the color/fabric. As other reviews mention, the shipping time was much longer than estimated (it took 16 weeks instead of 9-10).

utilize the swatch kit!
i HIGHLY recommend asking them to send you a swatch kit, you can choose up to 5 color choices for them to send you so you can have them right there in front of you in person before ordering the chairs - it will help trust me especially if you have unusual lighting in the room you will be putting them in!

energizing red color and comfy cushioning
Now I see why it's named the "womb" chair, it's cozy and cushy, the fabric is soft and even the sides and top feel like they have a little padding to them - aside from the feel, the bold red stands out and energizes the space in my living room

blue looks awesome with brightly colored accents
Ordered in space blue and it looks very good. I thought the boldness of the design would look best in a darker color especially since I already have a few brightly colored decorations and accent pillows strewn around my living room

a well made chair, still getting used to the style
Not the style I'd typically go for, still getting used to how it looks in my living room, i'm warming up to it - aside from being on the fence about how it looks, I am impressed with the level of comfort as far as cushioning and fabric is concerned

Yes!! This chair is absolutely eye-catching, there isn't a person that comes to my house who hasn't been drawn to it yet! The cushions and backrest are supportive, the base feels strong and the armrests give it a little extra coziness. Love this design.
