Eero Saarinen is one of the 20th century's most well known and respected designers. He is known for his ability to adapt his style to each specific project, and for designing in terms of setting rather than form. His Tulip Chair is the perfect example of this, as its shape was created to fix what he saw to be a problem in many dining rooms. This chair earned much recognition, receiving the 1969 Museum of Modern Art Award, and remains just as popular today.
The Saarinen Tulip Side Chairs bring this acclaimed design into your home. It works great to add a hint of retro flair to your dining table, or as occasional seating in your living room or home office. The Saarinen Tulip Side Chair is also customizable, enabling you to own a classic that fits in perfectly with your current décor. Its upholstered cushion is available in your choice of leather or fabric, with a great selection of colors to choose from. Its frame is made of fiberglass and met by a painted cast aluminum base.
Saarinen recognized the importance of comfort, a principle that was at the center of this collection. He was the first to construct a chair shell from fiberglass, a material that is not only visually appealing but flexes in response to body weight making it extremely comfortable. The Saarinen Side Chair is just one of his designs that remains popular today, proof of the staying power of his innovative work.
