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.

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.

Knoll

Knoll was founded in 1938 by Hans and Florence Knoll who sought to create new types of furniture and environments for the home and workplace. Their approach was to join craftsmanship with technology through the use of design and to create beautiful home furnishings that stood the test of time visually, functionally and practically. The pair sought out designers willing to change the landscape of modern design. With pioneering modernists like Eero Saarinen, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Harry Bertoia, and Richard Schultz they built a brand that today contains many of the hallmarks of modern design.

Knoll enjoys brand recognition throughout the world for its modern classics as well as groundbreaking new products formulated under new designer partnerships. Few companies can match the array of Knoll products, which combine a modernist aesthetic with residential appeal. This point of view nurtured by Florence Knoll, has become the trademark of Knoll design. The Knoll name offers a rich design history - a legacy of iconic designers and inventive new collaborations. Their focus on quality and responsible manufacturing means that each piece transcends multiple generations in both use and appeal.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from VERY COMFORTABLE AND STRIKING 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.
