This, the polarised version of the iconic space age classic, is the Eero Saarinen Tulip Side Chair in a cool black finish. Just how do you continue the success of a chair that is already into its seventh decade? How do you keep it fresh for new audiences? Well the simple answer to the question is that it did not need to! The design was so good, so versatile and so natural that popularity has never waned, and new followers have always found it endearing. But the addition of a polarised ‘black’ version of the chair (to match the release of black tables too), has evolved the look and feel of the design for new interiors and new contemporary and industrial spaces.
The Tulip Chair is a near perfect dining chair, light and comfortable and with a seamless swivel for easy movement around the table. But it can be so much more than that too! As well as matching the black Tulip Dining Tables the chairs can fit into any décor, be used with any table, or used as a side chair for any number of purposes from bedroom dressers to conservatory easy chairs.
If you have a new seating need and are looking for something just that little bit different, then the alternative black tulip chairs may just be the very thing you are looking for. Give your interior the lift it deserves today and go to the dark side, contemporary chair design at its best.

Our Tulip Tables & Chairs use cast Aluminium bases which provide super tensile strength to cope with heavy Marble tops, yet light enough to provide the ability to move easily.
All marble tops are solid one-piece cuts of natural marble, no joins, no manufacturing. Sometimes natural quartz can occur within the stone and are perfectly normal.
Marble is cut, polished and crated at source in Italy & Spain, we therefore cannot dictate individual marble patterns on order as it is essential the heavy marble remains in transport crates for their safe moving.
The Walnut Veneer uses real American Walnut top layer, finished in a preservative lacquer.
Laminate tops are cut moulded wood, painted with 3 layers and lacquer finished.
Our Tulip Chair cushions are made from a velveteen synthetic fabric, machine washable at lower temperatures. Please do not tumble dry.
