Shipping to United States: Free


We have an incredible vintage Saarinen white tulip arm chair with black seat cushion designed by Eero Saarinen for Knoll Studios. This iconic tulip chair emerged in 1956 and is known for its sleek, effective structural design solutions.

This is a factory original mid 20th century piece produced circa the 1970's. Features a cast aluminum base with a white coated finish and a molded fiberglass shell with a reinforced plastic bonded finish. Comes with the original black upholstered foam removable cushion with a zippered cover and velcro fastening. This is an excellent easy to fit accent chair and can be styled in most sized spaces.


The exact age of this piece is not finite as several pieces of information that we have on this set are somewhat vague. We estimate this piece is from a 1970's production series based on its previous owners collection, however this is not a guarantee.


This chair is in good condition for its age. There are some scuffs/dings to the shell standard with general use, but the chair remains in great structural, functional, and aesthetic condition. The upholstered cushion is believed to be the original bears minimal signs of wear.
