The design principle is a circular base from which a stem extends upward to a larger circular top. The Tulip is available in a wide variety of sizes and is the single most celebrated design in a mid-century modern tables. In the design phase of Eero Saarinen earliest prototype, the Tulip Table stem and base were made of fiberglass. Before even going into production, Eero realized that while this ensured absolute color and sheen consistency, the fiberglass base would not support the table. He then switched to a Cast Aluminum base. Experimenting with Rilsan type coating over the aluminum, he was able to achieve the coordinating gloss and color of the fiberglass.

Does it get any more “Eero Saarinen” than the Tulip Chair and Table series? It should come as no surprise that an artists work is their signature. Comparing the tulip table and chairs, created in 1964/65 respectively, it is not difficult to see the relationship to Eero’s other creations. (1963) Both the chairs and the table feature a clean refined appearance with a gloss sheen, seamless appearing in design. The chairs, originally in red wool fabric are now available in a multitude of colors. The table was created in a wide array of dimensions providing for coordinating options from the occasional table, all the way up to a full dining suite.

The Tulip Chair went on to star in none other than Gene Rodenberry’s Star Trek between 1966 and 1969. The bridge chairs were tulip chairs, with a slight modification. After the series ended, a few were salvaged. One recently auctioned for more than $18,000.

Eero Saarinen born 1910 was a Finnish American architect and industrial designer famous for his ability to master varying style. For example, he was accomplished in both simple, sweeping, arching structural curves and seemingly the opposite side of the spectrum, machine-like rationalism.

He designed many important pieces of furniture including one of the most famous, the “Womb” chair and ottoman (1948). The “Tulip” or “Pedestal” group (1956), features side and arm chairs, dining, coffee and side tables, as well as a stool. Eero’s designs were extensive, all were highly successful except for the “Grasshopper” lounge chair, which, although in production through 1965, was not a big hit.
