“TULIP DAY” CELEBRATION FROM LEXINGTON

While May 13 is being celebrated as Mother's Day, one furniture seller is creating a stir about another celebration: Tulip Day.

Tulip mania in one form or another has been around since the 1600s, but the recent petal uprising has generated a proliferation of festivals devoted solely to the tulip. The famed Canadian National Tulip Festival in Ottowa is celebrating their 60th year this week; while the Tulip Time Festival in Holland, Michigan has been running since 1929.

What has troubled Moshe Melamed, co-owner of LexingtonModern.com--a premier seller of mid-century modern classics--was that Eero Saarinen's Tulip table and chair series was being unjustly overlooked.

With this in mind, Melamed is encouraging his nearly 18,000 Facebook fans to contact the festival organizers with a simple message, "Encourage artists, poets and designers to exhibit at your festivals. Creative minded people from all backgrounds have something to say about this famed flower."
