Review for Saarinen Style Tulip Side Chair
March 5, 2020
Great chairs! The bottom matches the bottom of the table, they are perfect together. As far as comfort, their what I expected from plastic. I didn't have any trouble with the assembly, it took about 3 to 5 minutes to put each one together.

The change was needed, dining room is tons better than it has been in the last decade. All it needed was some new furniture to revive it!

yellow seat cushions?
December 17, 2019
I was really hoping these came with a yellow seat cushion because that would have been ideal for my dining room. I ordered in white to not interfere with the color palette. They look nice but not entirely what I wanted.

I bought one from an antique store with a propeller base years ago, I ended up selling it and I regretted it ever since - very happy there are good reproductions out there like these - no propeller base but the pedestal looks just as good - love my new saarinen tulip chairs!

Best price around.

Recently bought 4 white tulip style side dining chairs with white leatherette cushions. Two chairs arrived first, and the other two arrived the next day. (?). Delivery time was as stated by Inmod. Assembling time was minimal. The cushions are SUPER thin and completely attached to the chair. Beware of food going through the crevices between the cushion and the chair. Good idea to have some kind of brush to clean between them. They come with a rubber cord at the bottom so It won't scratch the floor, but one of them kept falling off so we adhered It to the chair with a strong epoxy sealer, and It worked (at least for now). The bottom screws hidden under the round base keep getting loose and we need to keep tightening them. Maybe we will add a different kind of lock washer.
Resuming It all: comfortable, stylish, super strong construction, but a little bit of work for someone who just wants a dining chair.

Not easy to assemble though once the first one was finally figured out, others went faster. Directions leave a lot to be desired. Chair did not have the black leatherette seat as ordered but a black cloth seat instead. Decided fabric was preferable for us.
Otherwise we are very satisfied; chairs are very comfortable. Swivel feature is a bonus for my husband who uses a walker - much easier to get in and out of.

Saarinen style tulip chair
June 12, 2018
Chair looks just as advertised. Its comfortable and easy to put together, however, the plastic gasket (should be rubber) on the bottom does not adhere, is poorly constructed and does not stay in place. Therefore the metal bottom of the base scrapes the floor and requires another solution to this problem.
ProsChair is comfortable. Easy to put together. 50's stylish.
ConsFaulty cheap plastic gaskets on bottom causing scratches on floor.

It's an unusual chair especially in a setting with many wooden furnishings but it's something that brings new style to the space, a little quirky but sparked a new look

Exemplary reproduction, it stands out more than any other piece of furniture in my home in a good way, I'm happy to own such an iconic design that's practically indistinguishable from the original

OH BOY!! If you are considering ordering these because you are looking for a well-made reproduction of the original Saarinen, these are EXCELLENT especially for price point! I was on a mission to find the best bang for my buck and you won't be disappointed, I wasn't!!

more cushioning please!
February 23, 2018
These chairs needed some more cushioning on the seats personally in my opinion but style and make was up to my standards, a nice reproduction

long lasting, high quality, strong base

I was happy to find out the base is metal on the chairs when they arrived, I guess I didn't read the features closely enough but it was a nice surprise either way, They are very well made, the seats are comfortable and they feel like they will last a long time

Love That Look and Function

We have an elliptical Tulip table that these chairs went well with. The chairs are well constructed, pivot easily, and are quite comfortable. They were fairly easy to assemble and after a year we only had one problem. The one chair that is used the most had the top cushion start to loosen. It was fairly easy to disassemble part of the chair and re-tighten theses nuts. I think it would be good if they had nuts with a locking plug to keep this joint with the seat cushion tight.
ProsLooks and function
ConsOne loose seat cushion.

Looking closer at the Saarinen Style Tulip Side Chair, is the base and the seat itself tow different color whites?
1 Answer
The base and seat are slightly different whites. The reason is the base is made from painted metal while the seat is molded plastic.

What is the difference between this chair and the other Saarinen one that is priced at $299
1 Answer
The difference between this chair and our other chair - - is that the other chair is made from fiberglass so it will have much more weight to it. This chair is made from molded plastic.
