As I think back to the trip my mom and I took to Italy, I was amazed by how the immaculate Roman Colosseum's architecture was. And first gazing at the tall buildings in New York City during a perfomance trip with my sister- our jaws literally hit the floor.

So important, every housewife and businessman had one up on their walls...

From the "Womb" Chair and Ottoman to the very famous Tulip collection, Eero Saarinen's art in archictecture really shifted the way we think about interior design today. This week, we admire Saarinen as he immigrated from Finland to the United States, studied in Paris and with the help of his good friend Charles Eames, discovered how one competition would change his life.
