One of my favorite designs from the mid century is Eero Saarinen's tulip style. About 2 years ago I spotted a small white tulip end table on Craigslist. I paused, I lost. I just knew that some day I would come across them again. I had to wait about 2 years, but yesterday was that day. I spotted a Craigslist ad that read something like "moving sale, 60's and 70's furniture". There they were, a pair no less! I drove in rush hour traffic to get them. There and back, thanks to the Los Angeles traffic, it took me about 2 hours to make what would otherwise have been a 30 minute round trip. That's okay though. I had to have them and I LOVE! Now, where to put them and what to place on top. Oh what fun!

Today we talk Tulip. Not the flower, though I like them too, but the fabulous curve of the Saarinen inspired shape....
