Eero Saarinen Womb Chair and Ottoman
“Eero Saarinen designed the groundbreaking Womb Chair at Florence Knoll's request for ‘a chair that was like a basket full of pillows - something she could really curl up in.’ This mid-century classic supports countless positions and offers a comforting oasis of calm hence the name.” —Knoll.
George Nelson Model 4692 Platform Bench
A modern bench with beautiful lines! The Model 4692 Platform Bench is a landmark of modern design. The rectilinear lines of the surface reflect designer George Nelson's architectural background. Nelson's creative goal when designing the platform bench was a multi-use piece. He envisioned it as shelving, high and low storage cases, coffee tables, or seating. This piece, with its ebonized frame and rectangular slat seat, is simply beautiful.
KULE founder Nikki Kule met twin sisters Maggie and Anne Genovese of Forsyth while seeking a very special piece for her new home. After discovering Forsyth on Instagram, she chatted with Annie, who suggested, "Why don't we recover a chair in your KULE stripes?" The partnership formed organically.
"I've always been inspired by beautiful interiors and architecture, so home is a natural extension for me," Nikki shared. "I love how Forsyth takes incredible vintage pieces and makes them new and fresh.
