My dad worked for Knoll in the early 50s when I was a little girl. He had a picture taken with Mr. Risom and always spoke so highly of him and Mr. Knoll. My dad bought the womb and grasshopper chairs he upholstered. He was a wonderful upholsterer who loved exceptional furniture.

I own several Risom pieces, mostly chairs, purchased around 1955-56.
But also have a headboard & 2 night tables. Unfortunately, in a divorce, I had to give up a wonderful 2-cabinet dresser that floated on a large base. Sigh.

I love the exuberance of mid-century modern & certainly Mr. Risom's designs have that air.
