Architect Eero Saarinen was born this day in 1910. His 1955 design for the dining room table at the Miller House anticipates his iconic Pedestal Collection including the Tulip Chair for Knoll. Balthazar Korab who photographed many of Saarinen’s buildings took this photo of the Millers’ Dining Room.
