Why Wellesley women live at the library.

WellesleyLibraryGHorton

The brilliant students at Wellesley College probably don’t need a reason to go to the library, but if they do, I suggest they spend time in the room filled with Womb Chairs. Eero Saarinen designed this chair in 1948, after Florence Knoll challenged him to create a chair that she could curl up in. Florence didn’t go to Wellesley College, but the result of her challenge to Saarinen should earn her an honorary degree.

FYI: The Womb Chair is included in the Knoll Classics Sale beginning February 25.
