Eero Saarinen, the eminent Finnish designer, is among the group of designers and architectures who have made a major impact on the modernist movement and is highly synonymous with “The American Century”.
While most of his iconic mid-century modern furniture pieces tower over cityscapes, his designs are also found in kitchens, dining rooms and lounge areas around the world. This undisputed master of the 20th century architecture has left behind a series of innovative and enduring pieces that are still in production and faithful replicas are made available by leading online furniture stores for you to bring home and accentuate your living space.
Two of his most coveted masterpieces that fit seamlessly with any modern setting are the Tulip collection and Womb Chair with matching ottoman.
Tulip Collection Gets Rid of the Slum of Legs
Chairs and tables were traditionally designed with four legs but Saarinen thought to do away with the unnecessary and hence, his Tulip collection is simply perfect for modern apartment and office spaces that scream for lack of space. The gorgeous tulip table can be used as a dining table or as a side table. It features one pedestal that is strong and sturdy enough to support the simple yet elegant marble top. The table goes with contemporary and modern chairs or you could also choose to pair it with the tulip chairs that are also unique because of just one leg. The Tulip collection is designed to maximize space and its sophisticated and attention-catching design makes it an ideal addition to your home or office interior. If you are a bit low on cash, forget the original and go for an Eero Saarinen replica from leading online furniture stores.
Sit in Any Way You Want in a Womb Chair
Are you tired of those one-dimensional lounge chairs that are just tall and narrow? Do you want a chair where you can sit as comfortably sideways or in any other way? Saarinen’s Womb Chair is a highly innovative chair from the structural point of view and allows one to sit and relax as one wants. The chair is fully upholstered providing great comfort and the matching comfort just makes one never wanting to get up. It is perfect for the living room, reception area of the office or even lounge areas of hotels. A womb chair reproduction is available in low prices and in a variety of color, upholstery and fabric options.
