Iconic Knoll

Inspires Some Sass

Saarinen Dining Table and Tulip™ Armchair, Designed by Eero Saarinen for Knoll®

I was inspired to sketch this sassy little vignette after creating my top 10 list of most coveted furniture designs.  Why the attitude on my fashionista? She hasn't had her coffee yet! 

Recognizable by interior designers and architects worldwide, here's some history for those of you who aren't in the know. Five years - the length of time it took Eero Saarinen to research and design an extraordinary new line of furniture that he felt decluttered the underside of tables and chairs.  He called his new designs the Pedestal Collection. And the chairs, he called the Tulip chairs.  If you ever come across either of these at an estate sale - grab 'em!
