    Located in Chattanooga, TN
    Set of four beautifully restored Mid-Century Modern “tulip chairs” by Burke. These elegant, Space Age dining chairs have become one of the most iconic chair designs in history. Eero Saarinen first designed his Pedestal Collection (Tulip series) for Knoll in the 1950s. His innovative, pedestal base was meant to solve the “slum of legs” as Saarinen put it.

These Burke chairs rival Saarinen in form and quality. The Burkes are also fiberglass shells on metal tulip bases. These Burke chairs also rotate 360 degrees. One of the biggest distinction from Saarinen’s design is the base itself. Burke’s have a four-point base while Saarinen’s base...
