If you’ve followed us for some time now, you’ll know we are complete and utter suckers for all things by Eero Saarinen, especially the sleek Tulip Table. Design mastermind Saarinen was a Finnish American architect and industrial designer noted worldwide for his neo-futuristic style.  

Besides, Saarinen was famous for his almost whimsical, some may even say space-age looking pedestal Tulip Table and Tulip Chairs. Makes complete sense since he’s also the man behind a few airports and his last name is Eero… Get it? 

Pushing all design and manufacturing boundaries, the groundbreaking Tulip Collection, featuring both the Tulip Table and Tulip Chair, he designed back in the ‘50s. At that time, he was in collaboration when working with a renowned American design firm.

The Tulip Table quickly became a hit globally! Literally, you  may find Tulip Table and chairs in residential and office settings all over the world. Bear in mind the Tulip Table comes in a range of table tops, colors and sizes – from dining size to coffee size to bar size to side size. 

It’s no surprise people love the Tulip Table so much! While it’s technically MCM and debuted in ‘58, we find its sculptural look easily blends with a lot of other eras. And, it also pairs with different chair styles, from sofa to accent chair to bench to dining chair. Versatility at its best!

Some people pair it with plastic chairs like the Eames Chairs others pair them with molded plywood chairs like the Cherner Chairs paired with some vintage bentwood Thonet Chairs, for instance. You may also perfectly pair them with the curvy Wishbone Chairs by Wegner.
