The tulip style chair from Burke Inc was inspired by the famous Eero Saarinen Tulip Chair. The most noticeable difference between the two designs is the base. The Burke chair has a star-shaped base. Burke mass produced their chairs in the 1960s to great popularity. We collected this set and decided to paint them a high gloss black for a cool contrast between the chair and custom sheepskin cushions. The sheepskin is from California. We love this California sheepskin for its authentic, genuine look and thick, rustic feeling. This is a cool set of dining chairs destined for a insanely cool room.
