Euro Saarinen's Tulip chair was designed in 1955 for Knoll (of course - I often feel like all the best iconic pieces are manufactured by Knoll!). The chairs smooth lines and futuristic look is considered a classic of industrial design.

There are two really cool pieces of trivia regarding this phenomenal piece of furniture. One, is that in a 1956 cover story in Time magazine, Saarinen announced that he was designing a collection to "clear up the slum legs un the U.S. home." He later completed the Tulip collection, including the iconic table, by creating a cast aluminum base inspired by a drop of high-viscosity liquid. The second cool piece of trivia is that the chair's popularity soared when it appeared on the "U.S.S. Enterprise" ship on Star Trek in the 1960's.

You can purchase the Tulip chair in either an armless or armchair version.

What a beautiful little nook/ vanity. The vivid red roses add romance and glamour to the already stunning setting.

How beautiful is this kitchen? I am so into the glossy grey subway tiles stacked rather than staggered.

Notice the three Random pendant fixtures? Love the fact that they are not all the same size or the same length.
