Description

about our Womb Style Chair & Ottoman

Originally known and designed in 1948 as the Wombat Chair, the Womb chair was created by famed Finnish Modern furniture designer Eero Saarinen. As a strong believer in that the entire field of design was a unified body, Saarinen heralded three design principles: Functionality, Structure and representation of the time. As such, much of his design principles can be seen in the Womb Chair, as the chair was not only designed with the customer and end user in mind, but it would also transcend time, becoming one of the most iconic and most recognizable furniture pieces of the mid-modern century era. Moreover, Saarinen’s Womb Chair organically aligns with the mid-century Scandinavian modern style of furniture, valuing synthetic materials in order to create unique forms. With the name Womb Chair, Saarinen’s design perfectly captures the feeling the name evokes, allowing the sitter of this chair to be curled up in absolute comfort and satisfaction.

Upholstery

Upholstery

All of our products are constructed using full-grain leathers. We provide you with the option to choose from both Italian and Aniline leather, as each is used for specific settings. The information below should help you decide which one to choose. If you require further information, feel free to call us.

Italian
Our imported Italian leather is our most popular upholstery type. Imported from Europe, this leather has a uniform grain pattern with top layer protection. Designed to look great, feel fantastic, and be durable enough to withstand high traffic use and pets. This upholstery is flexible to use in almost any setting from residential, restaurants, lounges or retail.
aniline
Aniline leather is the highest quality of leather available. It includes the outermost layer of the hide, allowing imperfections like scars and blemishing to show, giving the leather its unique look and feel. This leather is buttery soft to the touch, and has great breathability. With a thin, top layer protective coating, this leather is both luxurious and durable.
vintage
Our imported Vintage leather is our most unique upholstery type. Imported from Europe, this leather has a gorgeous vintage look with top layer protection. Similar to Italian leather, it is designed to look great, feel fantastic, and be durable enough to withstand high traffic use and pets. This upholstery is flexible to use in almost any setting from residential, restaurants, lounges or retail.
cashmere
Made from the fine undercoat of the Cashmere goat, this fabric is strong, light and soft, giving it a luxurious look and feel. The name cashmere is derived from the word "Kashmir", a city in Pakistan where these goats are traditionally found. Unlike others, we still source ours from Pakistan where the skills passed down from generation to generation lead to a better quality product.

Perfection

Robert         

Perfection is really the only way to describe this chair. Goes great with my other furniture that I got from IFN. Love the quality and the price is fair and the shipping is quick, what more can an online shopper ask for?

5 stars from me!

good

Craig         

Just got my womb chair today that i purchased from IFN. Chair came as expected however it was missing a foot cap. I wasn't too thrilled about that, they said they will send one out right away. Just kind of upset that i have this nice chair and I can't sit on it yet :(. But besides that issue everything seems to be in order, the leather and the steel feels like high quality materials. Doesn't feel thin or super light weight like other products i have came across in the past. Hopefully I get my foot cap soon!

good

I was on the market for a chair and a foot stool combo, looked at a bunch online and came across IFN. Decided to give them a call and get a bit more information, the workers there were very nice and very informative about their products. They sent me some leather samples and after receiving it I decided to place my order. I am very pleased with the quality and craftsmanship and for someone who is very picky about everything, this womb chair definitely meets my standards. 2 thumbs up :)

Awesome
