Before & After: Eero Saarinen Executive chairs

This set of 8 Saarinen executive chairs, two armchairs & six side chairs, weren't in terrible condition (we've seen worse!), but the fabric was very old and the colors were a little dated. Our client uses them as dining chairs and wanted to punch up the ensemble, so she used a variety of colors, all in the Knoll family, with two patterns repeated.

How fun is this?! 

This is one of the great things about classic modern furniture; it can completely carry bright color and contrasting pattern. And if you aren't into vivid and bold, these chairs are just as stunning in more understated colors. 

Thank you Eero Saarinen.
