Knoll









A gentleman wandered into the gallery where I work today inquiring about sculpture and the Nakashima furniture we sell and after a long conversation about design he introduced himself as a representative from Knoll Furniture. I swooned, explaining to him that I grew up with many stunning Knoll pieces in my childhood home and he easily guessed my father was an architect. We talked more about mid-century design and the work Knoll is producing now and it got me longing for may favorite chair of all time, the Saarinen Womb Chair. Here are some stunning designs, both past and present, from Knoll.
