Design by Eero Saarinen, 1957.
Finnish-born Eero Saarinen designed the Tulip Chair with Seat Cushion in terms of its setting – the space the chair would occupy – rather than a particular shape. In his purist approach to architecture and interior design, the designer sought the essential idea and reduced it to the most effective structural solution within an overall unity of design. The supremely versatile, highly sought-after Tulip Chair embodies Saarinen's vision beautifully. Customize your Armless Tulip Chair with cushion upholstered and base color options.

VERY COMFORTABLE AND STRIKING
By: Mercedes D., Homeowner (MIAMI, FLORIDA, USA)
THE TULIP CHAIR IS MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE THAN I THOUGHT. I BOUGHT THESE CHAIRS TO GO WITH MY NEW SAARINEN TABLE. TOGETHER THEY ARE GREAT. IT MIGHT BE A BIT HARDER TO MATCH THESE CHAIRS WITH ANOTHER TABLE BUT WITH THIS ONE THEY ARE PERFECT.
Designer: Eero Saarinen
The son of architect and Cranbrook Academy of Art director Eliel Saarinen and his wife, textile artist Loja, Eero Saarinen studied sculpture in Paris and architecture at Yale before working on furniture design with Norman Bel Geddes and practicing architecture with his father. He collaborated on several projects in furniture design with his friend, Cranbrook alumnus Charles Eames, and opened his own practice in Bloomfield Hills in 1950. Among the many buildings for which he is known are the Dulles International Airport in Washington, DC, The Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri, and the TWA Terminal at Kennedy International Airport in New York. He was the recipient of numerous awards and the subject of many exhibitions.View other products by Eero Saarinen
