The Finer Details
Intent on designing an alternative to the customary four-legged chair, famous architect and furniture designer Eero Saarinen created the world’s very first one-legged chair, in turn revolutionizing the design world. Naming it the Tulip Chair, due to its sleek, curved body, the designer first introduced this groundbreaking seating solution in the late 1950s as part of the Pedestal Collection. The series was instantly popular and remains so to this day.

Eero Saarinen’s penchant for perfection made him an impeccable designer. The Finnish-American architect opted for a sculptural approach when it came to his furniture designs. The aesthetic worked for him, a he grew obsessed with achieving the perfect curve or line.
Saarinen’s design process was a long and tedious one. He was so tuned into the details that he’d build hundreds of versions of a piece until it was visually and functionally flawless. The designer’s time was certainly not wasted; his innovative designs include the iconic Tulip Armchair, the Tulip Table and the Womb Chair.
Envisioning the placement of a piece proved to be a key to Saarinen’s great success. "Always design a thing by considering it in its next larger context - a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city plan," he once said.
I have the actual Knoll Saarinen (with label, from the 60's) version of these chairs in great shape. My original has turned to an almond color over the years, and these new chairs are a bright white. That is not a problem for me. The new chairs are solid, and a exact match to original in size and shape. These are great chairs!
Had been looking for the perfect 2 chairs for my tiny studio. Wanted style, comfort and swivel - but not at the $2K price tag of original designer. These chairs are fantastic! Quick delivery, easy to put together. Great sturdy construction. Super comfortable for dining, lounging or working on computer. One of the chairs had a little squeak at first but the squeak disappeared after a couple of days.
Excellent quality. Easy to assemble. Chairs feel solid and swivel smoothly. Beautiful.
I received superior customer service, and the quality of my tulip chair is excellent!
The Tulip Armchair is gorgeous in person! It's also very comfortable. Highly recommended.
