Take a look inside Bea’s home

Artifort fan Bea Kroeze submitted a selfie with her purple Tulip chair for the Artifans competition. The jury selected Bea as runner up so we visited her to award her with an Orange Slice® Junior designed by Pierre Paulin for Artifort.





Bea’s fan story

“I have been an Artifort fan since I was 2 years old. From that age me and a girlfriend must have turned hundred thousands of circles in the F454 (Tulip’s original name) at her grandmother’s place. From that moment I was set to own this chair when I was grown up.

It never left my mind, I kept fantasizing about a big Tulip in my favourite colour purple. Buying a new design classic was out of my reach so I searched for a second hand Tulip on the internet for years. About 10 years ago I finally bumped into MY Tulip chair: pale orange and in a lousy condition. She took my breath, my heart started beating faster. It was love at first sight. This chair was destined to be mine. And that’s what happened. I gave my Tulip a make-over and reupholstered her with a Kvadrad fabric in my favourite colour purple.

Since that time it’s my favourite place to sit and THE eye-catcher in my interior. Not a day has passed without me sitting and reading, reclining and watching television, laying and relaxing, or just turning around in my beloved, comfortable Tulip."

Orange Slice® Junior

When handing out the Orange Slice® Junior, we were greeted by Bea’s 2 year old son. He unwrapped his new chair and loved it immediately. The Junior design classic designed by Pierre Paulin is the colourful centrepiece of his new bedroom.
