Verdi Alpi Knoll Original Eero Saarinen Oval Marble Tulip Table and Tulip Arm Chairs
Stunning isn’t it? An all original ‘Verdi Alpi’ Knoll Eero Saarinen oval marble table with a set of 4 original tulip arm chairs is the place to sit and dine at! This stunning piece of crafted perfection has been lovingly cared for and oozes with class which is matched by the 4 vintage tulip arm chairs which sit with it.
Saarinen’s timeless design was introduced in 1957 and took the world by storm. The elegant ‘flower-like’ design of the swooping base did away with the ‘mess of legs’ conventional chairs and tables suffered with and the majesty of the marble finish helped create a truly iconic design piece.
The range, beginning with Carrara marble, slowly expanded as the popularity of these pieces grew and soon began to include such beautiful examples such as this finished in green marble and others finished in red and blue marble too!
This original set is only altered by the addition of the replacement cushions that are on the chairs. Sadly a part that regularly ages too much, this is a common way to ensure these wonderful chairs remain useable.
The table is in superb condition considering its age. There are little to no ring marks or areas of staining in the marble and there are no cracks or chips in it whilst the heavy base is still exceptionally strong and is gleaming after being given a good clean.
The labels indicate these are original Saarinen table and chairs made by Knoll.
The Saarinen tulip series is an exceptionally well-known design and this popularity, and highly premium quality, has always seen them to be great investment pieces. Though still produced today, vintage variants still command a very reasonable investment value and interest and this superb set will not let you down.
