These platinum finish Saarinen Tulip chairs both armless and with arms are timeless modern creations from a 1957 collection. Chosen in celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the 20th Century’s most coveted iconic designs. The metaphor behind these fixed base chairs was the “cleaning up of the slum of the legs.”  Maybe that doesn’t make much sense now, but back then chairs’ legs designs may have looked cluttered with a pair of human legs dangling. If you have OCD..you may be really bothered, but it is a matter of preference in the end. I like them for their minimalism and pop-culture decadence.
