Product Story

Why must all chairs and tables have four legs? Originally designed by influential architect Eero Saarinen, the Tulip furniture series with its one pedestal leg was a stroke of genius and proved how new materials and technologies at the time could impact the world of design. In this current age, the timeless Tulip Table and matching Tulip Chairs are considered to be among the most popular of all iconic Mid-Century Modern pieces. The smooth contouring shape allows these pieces to be highly applicable to any modern space to this day.

The Tulip Side Chair is not only beautiful, but practical and durable as well. Unlike many of our competitors, the base is an aluminum base covered with a glossy white abrasion-resistant finish. It is stable despite the fact that it stands on a single leg, and is able to swivel 360 degrees smoothly and soundlessly.

As well, the seat is backed by a choice of solid fiberglass or polypropylene, a material that will last for years to come. The chair adds to a room with its unique design and comfortable cushion color options in boucle and leather. The colorful, microfiber-like Danish boucle fabric adds character and charm to any dining space. If leather is the top choice, our full grain Aniline dyed leather handpicked from Tuscany, Italy is truly a sign of excellence. This particular type of leather is of utmost quality and develops natural patina and added softness over time.

About the Designer

To his detriment or benefit, Finnish American designer Eero Saarinen was famous for his flexible style. He believed that his clients were “co-creators,” which led him to adjust his approach to design according to what they wanted instead of strictly adhering to his aesthetic. Despite the criticism this led to, he remains one of the most well-known designers of the mid-century period. 

Saarinen’s architectural and product design style varied from pared-down, curving silhouettes to cold rationalism. His work was present from bomb disassembly manuals to Time magazine to countless editorials. 

He used his sculpture and architecture training to make some of the most recognizable modern pieces, such as the Tulip Table series. Saarinen was a leader of his time.

Solid construction on these, ordered 8 for my clients and they love them. The paint and finish were good too

Just received my set of

Just received my set of chairs today, finally I can throw out my old dining chairs! These match so beautifully with the oval table I ordered. They are a true center piece for my dining room!

Great quality! received these

Great quality! received these after 8 weeks of waiting though. They are really cool chairs and I love the vibrant colors that cushions bring. 3 stars because I thought they would be more comfortable. The armed versions are probably better for comfort.
