Tulip table, walked to the forefront of modern design in 1956, minimalist at its core but still makes a major decorative statement. Just as its name “tulip”, this table looks slim and elegant. It is created by the great Finnish-American designer who called Eero Saarinen.
“Many different shapes are equally logical—some ugly, some exciting, some earthbound, some soaring.” --- Eero Saarinen
For many other traditional designs, there are a jumble of table and dining chair legs, which are in a mess. Eero Saarinen was in an effort to eliminate the "leg slums" found under the four-legged chairs and tables. At first, he drew hundreds of drawings, then followed by a ¼ scale model. Thanks to his early training as the sculptor, he improved his design through full-scale models, and constantly modify the shape with clay.
Elegant lines and strong one-leg design are surprising and unforgettable. This tulip design not only make spaces less cramped and visually crowded, but also inject the elegance into the overall space with the modern and artistic shapes. Without too much decoration for the table top and leg, the tulip table can be easily combined with other home furniture. The Tulip Pedestal Collection is Eero Saarinen's creative breakthrough in the furniture design. All these works reflect the organic free forms, rather than rigid and cold geometric shapes. The simple design is timeless classic that will never get old.
