Womb chair, Saarinen table, Tulip chair, Dulles Airport…what didn’t Eero Saarinen accomplish in his lifetime?
Famous for furniture designs, as well as some amazing architecture, Saarinen is one of several classics designers whose products are part of the Knoll Classics Sale.
“The son of architect and Cranbrook Academy of Art director Eliel Saarinen and his wife, textile artist Loja, Eero Saarinen studied sculpture in Paris and architecture at Yale before working on furniture design with Norman Bel Geddes and practicing architecture with his father. He collaborated on several projects in furniture design with his friend, Cranbrook alumnus Charles Eames, and opened his own practice in Bloomfield Hills in 1950. Among the many buildings for which he is known are the Dulles International Airport in Washington, DC, The Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri, and the TWA Terminal at Kennedy International Airport in New York. He was the recipient of numerous awards and the subject of many exhibitions.” (via Knoll)
Classic, yet modern and timeless, here are just a few pieces that you can still order for your home (for 15% off).
Yeah, yeah…we’ve probably all heard this phrase before to the point that there are even scholarly papers on the phrase (see: “I read Playboy for the articles”: Justifying and Rationalizing Questionable Preferences). But believe us when we say that there have been really great pieces of writing in the “questionable” magazine.
Such as this (lengthy) article from July 1961 titled “Designs for Living” where the first line reads, “Unfettered by dogma, the creators of contemporary American furniture have a flair for combining functionalism with esthetic enjoyment…”
The article itself is about some of our favorite designers here at Vastu, 5 of which are part of the Knoll Classics Sale that is currently underway.

That’s right, this weekend was your last chance to buy great pieces of furniture from Knoll at a reduced price (until next year). We appreciate and thank everyone who came out this weekend supported a local business. It was great catching up with clients new and old and being able to offer such a great discount on the high-quality and equally beautiful Knoll furniture.
Something I noticed as people were placing their orders was that there seemed to be a “fan favorite” of sorts. The Eero Saarinen Womb Chair and Ottoman.
Available in both the original size and a medium version (which is 85% of the original’s size) the Womb chair is a fantastically comfortable and visually striking chair to own. The soft undulations of the chair’s surface hug your body and make it a joy to sit in. And with all of the fabric choices available, the Womb chair is pretty easy to use in a variety of spaces. Check out the images we found from Knoll below. Read more
