Saarinen Tulip Table

In the 1940’s Eero Saarinen developed this pedestal table, along with the Tulip chair, as part of his research of "organic furniture.” The Tulip Table started out with a cast iron base. It came with various tops in laminate, marble or wood, could be round or oval, and was available in various sizes. Today, the base is made of cast aluminum same as the chairs. A fabulous table that looks good with any chair, modern or traditional. A beautiful sculpture, a piece of art.

PS I have a sneaking suspicion that one of these tables is the infamous Ikea Docksta. Can you pick which one?


Philippe Starck

Philippe Starck is one of the most, if not the most, famous designer in the world. This may be because he is unbelievably prolific, having designed anything and everything - yachts, toothpicks, taps, scooters, toothbrushes... He is a design genius in my books because of his creation of the Louis Ghost chair. I'd like to do a couple posts on Mr. Starck this week because he is too good to be featured only once.

de Gournay

The China Club post had me thinking of beautiful chinoiserie wallpaper. de Gournay's hand painted wallpapers, fabrics and porcelain are at the very top end of the decoration market and they have traditionally specialised in 18th century Chinoiserie and 19th century French designs.They also specialise in reinterpreting these designs and colours to create a contemporary feel. de Gournay's principal wallpaper collections are Chinoiserie, French 19th century Papier Peints Panoramiques and Japanese & Korean designs. All their wallpapers are hand painted and the design team can create fabrics, blinds and porcelain to complement them or to contrast with them. beautiful!

Kara Mann is a Chicago based interior designer specialising in high end residential and commercial design. Expressing lifestyles, experiences and personal aesthetics through design is the company's objective. What drew me to her work was her use of bold photographic art works.
