Genuine Imported Leathers
In order to distinguish Rove's line of genuine imported full leathers from generic leathers offered elsewhere that make similar claims of quality, we highly encourage you to request free swatches from each store and compare them side by side!
We are confident you will see the difference our quality makes. Rove products are designed to last for years thus it is only fitting that great attention is owed to the material and craftsmanship of each piece.
Important: We do our best to provide quality pictures but leather colors will look different under different lighting. Pictures shown on the website should be viewed as an approximation under studio lighting, for accurate color comparison please request our swatches.
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.
Eero Saarinen was known for his wide variety of styles, from geometric rationalism to curving silhouettes. His most famous works are the Womb Chair and Ottoman and the Tulip Table and Chair series. Fully entrenched in peak of the modern mid century movement, he was even friends with famed designers Charles and Ray Eames and Florence Knoll. Though he often worked in with his father, Eero was well established in his own right. He was contracted for projects for the White House, JFK Airport, the Gateway Arch and Dulles International Airport, among many others.
