Womb chair re-do

Here's a quick picture of our newly reupholstered Saarinen womb chair

Sorry for the resolution - cell-phone camera pic.

The chair was originally purchased in 1960 by my father and lived through kids and cats, before being banished to my parents' basement. We had the chair was re-done in which is fairly close to the original (and no longer available) fabric.

The chair is destined to be the focal point of my wife's and my currently-in-the-middle-of-a-gut-rehab 1954 contemporary, and my folks were thrilled that the chair was brought back from the brink of destruction.

The chair looks great!

I recently had a woman call to replace a womb chair from the 50s...I wonder if she knew it could be reupholstered so well. In the end, she opted for a medium size womb chair in chartreuse boucle. The medium and small sizes are new.
