Lounge me

I have recently initiated a search for the perfect lounge chair and I can't help but jump on the mid-century bandwagon and pick this as my dream chair:



The Saarinen Womb Chair is beautiful in its gently curving form and though I have yet to sit in one, I am going to guess that it is incredibly comfortable. It looks like the kind of chair that is cozy enough to snuggle up in with a blanket and a book but it's not so cushy that it will suck you in and make getting up a mini struggle.

It comes in an array of colors and a few different fabrics, depending on the retailer. The Womb Chair is definitely a bank-breaker but it will certainly have a high resale value if for some reason you change your mind after purchasing one.

Find the Saarinen Womb Chair at hivemodern and Design Within Reach, among other places.

I have a Design Within Reach catalog that I like to reach white taking a piping hot bath...it's Covet Central! Expensive but a good investment indeed...although I call everything expensive a "good investment".
