Good Questions: Lacquer Red Saarinen Table and Chairs?

Oct 11, 2007


I purchased some vintage Saarinen Tulip chairs and a Saarinen Tulip table base. They all need to be repainted/refinished. I'm going to use the set as a card/games table. My room is fairly traditional. I feel glossy white or glossy black are a bit too mod. Would Chinese lacquer red be too much? Also this year, Knoll is making them in platinum. I was also thinking about painting them bronze or pewter.

I'm thinking about making a slate top for the base...

Any ideas?



We're actually kind of traditionalists when it comes to Tulip chairs and tables, so we're going to ask readers what they think. Anyone?
