TULIPS ARE NOT JUST FOR VASES!

Filed under: eero saarinen — Tags: , — jherzlinger @ 3:48 pm

Happy Friday!

This week has flown by and I have been having a blast working over at the Kips Bay Show House!  It has been so wonderful meeting a lot of people and in fact a lot of bloggers and being able to put names and faces together!

Today’s blog is a result of several inspirational things.

I have been working on finding the perfect breakfast table for a wonderful alcove in an apartment, I have coincidentally recieved emails requesting a suggestion of the same and then I found the table! I am chalking it all up to kismet.  Which is now my new favorite word!

The “Tulip” table by Eero Saarinen (1957).  This iconic table  is a key part of twentieth-century design!  The fabulous part is that it is still available and the new one looks just as great”

The top comes in a choice of laminates, wood vaneers or marbles and the aluminum

Base in white, black or platinum.  This table is stunning in many different

design themes so don’t be afraid to take a look as it would be just as great with modern chairs as it would be with a pair of Queen Anne lacquered white!

Design Eero Saarinen, 1956
Aluminum base, laminate, marble or veneer top
Made in USA by Knoll

In his purist approach to design, Finnish-born Eero Saarinen sought out the essential idea and reduced it to the most effective structural solution. “The underside of typical chairs and tables makes a confusing, unrestful world,” explained Saarinen. “I wanted to clear up the slum of legs.” In his pedestal collection, which includes a dining, coffee and side table, Saarinen realized his ideal of formal unity: “Every significant piece of furniture has a holistic structure.” Winner of the 1969 Museum of Modern Art Award.

Construction notes: Base is constructed from molded, cast aluminum polished and coated in tough, abrasion-resistant rilsan finish.
Love,

Jamie
