The celebrated design of the Tulip Chair is inspired by the petals of the flower, marking its individual visual characteristic. Created in 1956, the Finnish architect and industrial designer Saarinen made the Tulip Chair following his principles for simple and rational design. His ambition was to reduce clutter and simplify the shape of the chair to a functional, but still aesthetically pleasing form. The clarified structure of the Tulip Chair is designed to provide perfect comfort and stability along with a touch of elegance. Recognized for its great design features, the chair has won a number of awards from art institutions like the Museum of Modern Art, the Design Center Stuttgart and the Federal Award for Industrial design. The Tulip Chair is not by Knoll®. Poly & Bark is in no way affiliated with Knoll®.
Poly & Bark reproduces the classic design with great precision detail. The stable structure consists of a light coated metal alloy foot and hand-molded ABS bowl seat. The seat is available in white and has a swivel function. The cushion comes in a quality fabric that is washable and is sure to last.

Stylish, streamlined and versatile
I'm loving the style of it, the simplicity of this classic design, and the swivel makes it very, very usable. The cushion is molded foam and it's too hard for me. It was also extremely hard to put into the fabric cover. I might replace the cushion.
Our Tulip Table and chairs
We ordered a tulip table and 4 chairs. The chairs were fine but the table had some blemishes on it. I contacted customer care and they sent out another table. Unfortunately the second table was no better so again we noticed customer care and asked them to have the third table inspected before sending out. The third top was just fine and we are happily using our nice set now. Customer Care was easy to work with. I sent pictures of the blemishes and they agreed to replace at no cost to us or to let us keep the table and discount it. We wanted a perfect table top and that is what we got.
better than we thought
chair is perfect with the saarinen table!! love that they swivel. we were concerned that they would be bulky or hard to move b/c of the round base., but we were wrong, just as easy as a regular chair. and b/c they swivel, you hardly have to move at all… great chairs and table!!! (we also ordered table from Poly and Bark)
"TERRIFIC REPRODUCTIONS OF A FAMED DESIGN"
I'm truly happy with the purchase of these chairs. It's even hard to tell it apart from the original Saarinen/Knoll design that would otherwise sell for hundreds more. The swivel feature is terrific, and feels sturdy. The base is a solid cast aluminum so there's hardly a worry about these things breaking apart. The fabric on the seat cushion is of a heavy-weight poly-mesh fabric that is very well made. The molded foam seat cushion insert is made of a high-density foam material that is firmly cushy and has the ability to "spring back" even after been seated on for hours on end. Overall, they look terrific, and would brighten up any breakfast nook or those tiny apartment dining areas with those whimsical curves. Also would look and function great in any office environments. Thank you, Poly+Bark for having these and at such a great price point!
These are good solid chairs - very easy to assemble. Its fun to swivel, they look great, and the company was great to work with. I like that the pad covers zip off and can be washed. Customer service reps also told me they do sell replacement covers if you ever need them. With messy kids in the house that is a real comfort!
