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 5 out of 5 by from Floating on Air! We've collected pedigree, vintage Mid-Century furniture for 25 years to fill our rare, International-style home in Washington, DC. We recently acquired a cottage in Provincetown/Cape Cod. With renovations nearing completion, we are excited to begin spending time there. Due to its small footprint, we had to be judicious in our furniture selection. We have long coveted Saarinen's Grasshopper chair, which we bought through YLiving. True to their promise, it was delivered in 5 to 6 weeks after placing the order, and arrived in perfect condition. We chose the Arroyo (burnt orange) fabric and walnut arms. It is absolutely stunning! After an exhausting weekend of moving in, we collapsed with stiff cocktails, admiring our new chair and vacation get-away. It is very comfortable, and truly looks like it's floating on air!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Elegant and comfortable The chair is wonderful to read in and takes relatively little space. Ours is in a big window and doesn't block the view.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very comfortable chair. The interesting legs and reclining position makes this chair special. It goes great with anything mid-century.
