Nice and New: Proenza Schouler Womb Chair

For the past month, Design Within Reach has been running a program called DWR: Limited, where each day a single item, sometimes vintage, sometimes new, is available for purchase or auction, in limited quantities. Tuesday's item up for purchase is a Proenza Schouler Womb Chair and Ottoman ($5,500), available in a quantity of four. The iconic chair, designed in 1948 by Eero Saarinen, has been updated upholstered in a a rich damask textile in a moody dark navy and black palette by Proenza Schouler, called Mepal Midnight, as part of the Fall 2008 line for Knoll Luxe. Not only is it a refreshing re-envisioning of the midcentury design, but it also resonates with Proenza Schouler's concept of "nonchalant luxury." The medium-size Womb chair is not available in Knoll's standard product line, so it's quite the limited edition. Oh, and did I mention that it's utterly stunning?

I like it but not the price tag.

Definitely a classic, but not loving the fabric. It seems like an oxymoron to me... but maybe that is the point of it?

It is beautiful, but not $5,500 beautiful. The fabric is wonderful, though.

I like the juxtaposition of damask on such a modern piece. I wouldn't like it for my home in that fabric -- it wouldn't blend with my my home decor.

It's pretty but I don't like the legs. For $5.5K I certainly want better legs than those.
