SECRET LAIR DESIGN

Is your hollowed-out volcano looking drab? Tired of the old furniture in your undersea headquarters? Spring is coming, and what better way to usher in a new season than tweaking the design of your secret lair! Spy Vibe fans of Mid-Century Modern have a chance to pick up pieces by Eero Saarinen and others during the big Knoll Classics Sale at Design Within Reach. If you've been looking for a Tulip chair to go in the corner by your piranha pool, the sale runs today through March 6th! Details here.

  1. we had this Tulip chair/table set growing up. i didn't see the significance as a kid, but wish we still had it around now.

  2. I have a pair of the armchair-version of these in my compound that I bought about 15 years ago. I chose to go with the comparatively rare non-rotating version, as this eliminates the large visible gap between chair and pedestal.

    Thus, I believe they present a better rendition of the one-piece effect that Saarinen was trying to achieve
