Welcome to the daily series “In Search Of,” where we look high and low on Krrb for one-of-a-kind items that we must have now! Today, it’s all about the designer “Saarinen” and we’ve got loads of his work.

Iconic designer Eero Saarinen (1910-1961), was a Finnish-American architect also known for his furniture creations. Working on everything from large-scale projects like the Arch in St. Louis to his famous tulip chairs, Saarinen’s designs combined sweeping, arching curves with simple functionalism. We get excited every time a new piece of Saarinen furniture pops up on Krrb listings. Here are just a few of the designer’s pieces.
