About the Chair:
Explore the Classic lines of the authentic modern & extremely rare Saarinen Tulip Arm Chair, part of the ORIGINAL AND ICONIC sculptural collection of architect and furniture designer Eero Saarinen made for the TWA Terminal at JFK Airport. After they began cleaning up the shuttered TWA terminal in 2003, many of the items within its historic walls were discarded without realizing future plans to renovate. Picked up by a NYC Taxi driver & used as a resting spot in the Taxi Garage of Hell’s Kitchen in Manhattan for the next 14 years until it made its way into my home.
Ideally I would have loved for this chair to become part of the new Hotel being built within the terminal but I feel like it will have a much longer life in the care of somebodies personal collection.
Love the style and grace of the object everyday in your home with one of the most distinguished pieces of mid-20th century design . Guaranteed to continue to be one of the best for many more centuries. This chair has managed to survive almost 70 years of minimal handling yet still maintains its style and beauty.
The unique qualities of this sleek & molded epoxy design added with a rich history of past ownership which sets this chair into a ’ one of a kind ’ category you will not find. Showroom quality it is not, but a methodical approach to refurbishment to not only keep the chair original but to also embrace its life after the terminal has been given to a chair originally constructed by a true architectural master for one of the busiest airport terminals in the world, JFK International Airport & TWA Airlines.

And now it can become part of Your History, in Your Home for the next 70 years and for generations to come.
