Significant to spring is the tulip. A perennial favourite but too short-lived.
But the long-lasting variety, the Tulip™ Chair Collection, designed by Eero Saarinen has been around since 1956. Stating that he was designing a furniture collection to “clear up the slum of legs in the U.S. home”, Saarinen created furniture that had a single pedestal or ‘tulip’ base versus the 4-legged style. Inspired by a drop of high-viscosity liquid the cast aluminum base became Saarinen’s “one piece, one material” furniture philosophy.
Designed by Eero Saarinen for Knoll® is the Tulip Armchair.

So whether your tulips are in your garden, in a vase or one of the pieces from Eero Saarinen’s Collection, enjoy.
