Womb Fabric Chair & Ottoman
RETRO CLASSIC REVIVAL
Every so often we bring back an icon. The Womb Chair in chrome is our classic re-invention of the 1948 Classic. The material elements of this design consist of chrome steel tube legs, and a molded fiberglass shell covered with shape forming foam. The upholstery is curated and statement. The cushions are amply filled with multi-density foam.
The flexibility to curl up with a book -or- stretch out and relax. That's why the original Womb chair was designed with loose cushions and a coordinating ottoman. It has a colorful history as an organic modernism form and was nicknamed the wombat at some point. We think its a comfortable chair and ottoman set that informs contemporary spaces of their modernist roots.
ABOUT CASHMERE WOOL TWEED
Cashmere wool fiber is obtained from “Cashmere goats.” Historically, fine-haired Cashmere goats have been called Capra hircus laniger, as if they were a subspecies of the domestic goat Capra Hircus. Cashmere goats produce a double fleece that consists of a fine, soft undercoat or under-down of hair mingled with a straighter and much coarser outer coating of hair called Guard Hair. For the fine under-down to be sold and processed further, it must be de-haired. De-hairing is a mechanical process that separates the coarse hairs from the fine hair. After this separating process, the resulting premium “cashmere” is ready to be dyed and converted into yarn.
