Now is the Time: The Tulip Table
Jul 27, 2011 4:30:56 PM
Eero Saarinen (1910-1961) was a Finnish American architect and industrial designer, famous for his purist approach to design, and beautiful, sculptural curves. In 1956, Saarinen introduced his Pedestal Collection as part of the tulip collection of chairs. They were taken into production by Knoll , and are still manufactured by them today. The collection was an attempt at reducing the structural elements of a table to the most basic shape, and was inspired by a drop of high-viscosity liquid. Saarinen explained, “The underside of typical chairs and tables makes a confusing, unrestful world. I wanted to clear up the slum of legs.” Well, he did, and they are gorgeous.
The Pedestal table looks fabulous in every setting, surrounded by any style chair. We offer these in a marble topped side table and fiberglass full size tables in 35 Inches or 47
We have these at such affordable prices, you now can own your very own quality replica of the real thing!
I would love to be invited to dinner with the Meyers:
and mixed with Danish-Modern chairs and a copper pendant adds warmth to this space:
