Saarinen Womb Chair

Eero Saarinen is one of the 20th century's most well known and respected designers. Known for being able to vary his style to meet the needs of each project, he was challenged by Florence Knoll to create the perfect lounge chair for her to relax in. The result was the Saarinen Womb Chair, designed in 1948.

The Saarinen Womb Chair is one of the most well-known pieces of 20th century design, and is made for relaxation and comfort. Designed for comfort, there is no chair more soothing than the Saarinen Womb Chair. In addition to its impeccable comfort, the Saarinen Womb Chair's design is impossible to ignore. It's testament to both Saarinen's skill and challenging of rules, the result of which is this true icon of design.

This Saarinen Womb Chair is a highly accurate reproduction of the Saarinen original, offering exceptional quality and attention to detail. This chair can be customized to fit the look of your home.

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.

Review for Saarinen Womb Chair
March 19, 2020
The blue doesn't match the photos. It has more of jean blue look to it than the deep blue I thought I was getting. On the upside, the size is right and it looks like the photos except for the color.

Love the cool flared back rest. Reminded me of butterfly wings when I first saw it. The shape is truly different from my other stuff, but it stands out without being the odd man out. Now I know I can start adding more interesting furniture to my living room.

A Decent Knockoff, but Delivery Headaches
December 15, 2019
My red womb chair arrived on time (after a month long wait, despite two weeks promised delivery). It was unboxed and strapped to the side of the truck. The delivery men explained that it had "fallen out of the box" several states earlier. Look at the picture to see what I saw. Inexcusable, and a function of shoddy packaging as well as inept handling. A foot was missing and a leg was bent so that the chair wouldn't sit flat on the floor, both issues easily repairable on my end. Not a big deal.

I was lucky. I think the few slightly grimy areas will come out when I work on them. However, he back pillow fits poorly, such that the fabric bunches. No one who knows the famous Knoll original well is likely to confuse the InMod copy, but no one else will know (or care). The red color is a vibrant, electric fire engine red. If you're looking for something that pops, this is it. If you seek a reasonable facsimile of an iconic design, this is the lowest priced product out there. You can buy five of these for one of the real thing. Will it last? I can't say. But, all delivery issues aside, I feel it's a good value for the price. If not exactly thrilled, my expectations were well met.

anything except mediocre!
December 8, 2019
Olive green was an impeccable choice, I LOVE THE FANNED BACK TOO! I looked up some information on the original designer and the history is really cool. I had no clue there was so much involved with modern furniture design. I plan to keep upgrading my home with well-known designers, you really can start to tell what separates great from mediocre! THANKS!

December 8, 2019
It doesn't really look the way I imagined it would..it may have been the choice of color but I think the "modern" style doesn't fit well in my living room. A chair with wood legs would have made more sense.

Happy and Unhappy
February 24, 2019
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 woman...so 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.

Disappointing.
December 30, 2018
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
September 26, 2018
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!
May 22, 2018
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
March 9, 2018
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
By John

blue looks awesome with brightly colored accents
February 13, 2018
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
February 13, 2018
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.
