Table Crush: Saarinen Tulip

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

Time to gush about one of my all time favourite furniture pieces...the Saarinen Tulip table.  Another classic mid-century icon, this table designed by Eero Saarinen in the mid 1950s is elegant, funky and sophisticated all in one. I'm not sure what I love more, the sleek base or the rich marble top.  I really do see myself sitting at one of these tables eating a meal, colouring with my kids or blogging away on my laptop. Not sure what chairs I would pair it with. Decisions, decisions. Just looking at this table sends me to la la land. See, major table crush.
