My husband and I are both designers - he is a furniture designer and I am a
ret'd interior designer. We do not believe in buying knock offs. However - we
can't fathom the price of this as a Knoll original. We have mostly only originals
in our home. This is a great knock off. It was worth the risk. The fabric is not
the boucle that another person mentioned. It is a flat woven flannel type of wool. It is
of a good quality. We got it in the dark grey. Was very easy to assemble -
just screwing the frame onto the shell. The dimensions are slightly off from the original
and the ottoman is probably too high. But - can't complain at all. This is such a
bargain. We researched and got fabric samples from other companies who knock off
this chair - this fabric is superior to any we got. And - this is the best price you can
get. No- I don't work for Overstock. But - I am an educated consumer and Overstock
always does me right. Hope this helps in your decision making.
Recieved the chair quickly after ordering, I a extremly disapointed. The chair has a red stain maybe printing fluid fr.om the cutout production. I can not believe how uncomfortable the cushions are. I can not believe that I recieved the same chair as reviews on the overstock site. The cushions are about 1.5 inches thick and I can see the pad through the fabric, which makes the chair look very cheap and when people sit it, you can see the by the look on their faces, how uncomfortable they are.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? fabric very thin can see gray pad color under white fabric
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very poor quality and very uncomfortable

Great chair for the price. I was looking for a chair and ottoman for a guest bedroom that would be comfortable to relax for guests who were visiting. This was a great solution. The color isn't really 'white', it is more of a cream color. I have received several compliments that the chair looks great and is comfortable though I find the wool a little itchy. I would definately recommend.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. good
How accurate was the on site description of the product? chair fits description
The quality is disappointing. The metal legs are weaker than they should be....making the chair wobbly and causing concern about how much weight it can hold. The fabric looks like felt. Only about half the bolts fit...some too short, some too long. It seems strange that someone would have difficulty screwing in bolts, but the opening is inside slits in the fabric so you can't see where the screw is going. It looks true to the picture, but quality is definitely compromised.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It is a dark gray.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Disappointing.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? It looks like the picture.
none of the screws and holes line up. I have 2 chairs, they look great but they only have 3 screws holding them together- the holes for the screws are way off. need a minimum of 2 people for attempting assembly. the stools were already assembled and have no complaints there. Once you get past the assembly, the chairs are totally fine. I have a very busy 3 year old boy and he has tested them out quite often and they seem pretty sturdy. Also we have a German Shepard and his hair sticks to the fabric and gets into the weave and is very hard to remove. Overstock has the best price on these chairs that I've found.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? the grey is a very cool grey

Love, love LOVE the chair. Legs are strong and the fabric is soft. The pillows have piping but the seam around the base of the chair does not; seams are a "tell" that this is a reproduction but who cares? Not me. I love the design of this chair and I am over the moon that it was affordable and durable. This was my first overstock purchase and I am thrilled. Its in the living room beside the couch and in front of the Tv and it gets DAILY use. My toddler really loves it. Got the dark gray which is sort of navy blue black which is fine. Assemby done in 10 minutes.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Not quite but still good

First I should say, I really wanted to like this chair. I really did. I had sit in an original Womb chair at DWR and was blown away at how comfortable it was and loved it - but of course the price is crazy and outside of my reach. Thought this might be a nice, cheap alternative to the original.
Okay... the GOOD - It arrived quickly (one day earlier than estimated); unlike some of the other reviewers I received all of the hardware with no missing bolts, nuts, etc.; one reviewer said their pillows did not have piping around them so I was happy to see that the pillows had piping. They looked similar to the picture but were a little more misshapen
The BAD - The fabric wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great either. It was scratchy and kind of cheap-looking. One of the seams on the arm had come apart about 1/2" and I could see a little sliver of the white frame underneath. I might have been able to live with it, but every time I looked at the chair I was unhappy at how it looked. Also, it was suppose to be dark grey and looked very blue/grey.
The UGLY - As many others noted, the bolts were not aligned. Urgh! It was frustrating to have to practically "reshape" the legs. Took too long to put together only to take it apart again when I realized the chair wasn't worth the price I paid. Also, the chair is very very uncomfortable. The pillows had foam that must have been mixed with cement they were so hard. Also the seat cushions looked way too small for the frame of the chair and not even close to the comfort of the original.
I bought this chair with the expectation that it was not going to come close to the original, but I thought it might at least be decent. It really wasn't what I thought it would be so it has now been packed up to go back to Overstock. I would not recommend this chair if you're looking for a cheap alternative to the original Womb. Not at this price.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? As other reviewers noted, the color was more of a blue-grey color.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. meh
How accurate was the on site description of the product? the site description is sparse. However, one thing that it did mention was "comfortable". I would not describe this reproduction as such.
i will start by saying that i have purchased several good things from overstock over the years, that the customer service rep was very nice and pleasant, and that i very rarely write reviews, good or bad. based on some of the other reviews, though, i felt compelled to share.
the good--it was delivered quickly and was packaged well. the customer service rep was very nice and gets five stars (as long as the proper hardware gets shipped).
the bad--there was no hardware included, and the chair is just sitting in pieces, for now. the customer service rep at overstock indicated that she will try to get the hardware shipped, asap. she was very nice and apologetic.
the ugly--this is really a poor-quality piece. the upholstery is not "great", nor is it like "felt," unless "felt" means a very, very loose curly knap of wool that more closely resembles the material of an outdoor carpet than the material in a hat. i can't assemble it, yet, so i can't speak to the comfort, but i can say that the cushions are very poorly constructed of very cheap, poor quality foam.
i suppose if one were to buy this hoping to get any approximation of an Eero Saarinen for pennies on the dollar, one would be disappointed, even at this price.
if one were to buy this to get a groovy chair that won't get used very much and doesn't know Eero Saarinen from Paul Bunyan, he or she will likely be left with thinking he or she simply paid too much for a low-quality piece.
i am not a designer, an interior decorator, or a furniture builder, but i do have decent eyesight. the deviations on the proportion and shape give it an odd look.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? fairly close
Please tell us about the quality of the product. poor
How accurate was the on site description of the product? fairly, insofar as "classic" and "comfortable" are very subjective, and "good" and "quality" were not used.
