Quality Tulip Tables Built to Last

This table is a masterpiece from an era of masterpieces. Eero Saarinen was a designer without peer from the mid-century period. His work is notable for its openness to the vagrancies of style, radically changing from project to project, allowing others to become co-creators in the process. He created a lasting legacy of innovation and aesthetic beauty. His tulip table and matching chairs perhaps best capture his brilliance. The table especially exemplifies precepts that continue to have influence in contemporary practice.The design is aimed at reducing the clutter of legs; you know, the thing that makes a table work. Saarinen had other ideas. A single hand spun aluminum spindle support is used to replace the legs. Modern technology allows this one element, a thin column, to support a full slab of high grade marble that serves as the table top. The result is a work of great aesthetic beauty. It is full of resonant textures, luxurious materials, and generous curves.
