Womb Chair
November 8, 2012
My folks bought this chair in the mid '60's and I have had it for about 15 years now. The fabric is no longer original and I should have it redone. We have it in our bedroom across from the fireplace where it makes a good spot to read or meditate while the other is sleeping. I love its look and its style-statement. We have the ottoman which seems like a must for this chair.
