In 1956, Eero Saarinen introduced his Pedestal Collection, including the infamous Tulip table. They were taken into production by Knoll, and are still manufactured there today. Saarinen wanted to reduce the structural elements of a table to the most basic shape, and was inspired by a drop of high-viscosity liquid. Saarinen explained, “The underside of typical chairs and tables makes a confusing, unrestful world. I wanted to clear up the slum of legs.” We're so happy he took on this challenge so that we can all enjoy this on-going tulip table trend! This breakfast nook above features a white tulip table set against a dark and moody chalk wall, with pale pink shell chairs. We couldn't love this space more! We also couldn't help but notice that fabulous lighting adds some major style to this space. Although Saarinen also designed the Tulip chair to pair with his table design, we think mixing different chairs styles looks great, especially when different materials are involved. The dark wood chairs above help the clean, white table pop. Here's some idea based on these beautiful images above: Modern Dining Chair Options A. The  Zuo Union Square Chair  resembles the classic French bistro style, perfect for using to contrast a modern table. B. You just can't go wrong with the white shell chair , no matter what table style is involved. C. If you want a really great contrast, pair the  Ranger Mod accent chair  with a white Tulip table .
