a timeless table

Don't you think it's necessary to own at least one timeless piece of furniture?  One of my favorites has to be the Saarinen pedestal dining table from the Tulip collection.  Eero Saarinen was a Finnish American architect, industrial designer and famous for his purist approach to design.  His beautiful sculptural curves are what makes his designs classics.
He was quoted saying "...I wanted to clear up the slum of legs."
I love this table for my own home, as it's perfect for a tight space and great for kids!
It's a neutral piece that goes with so many different chairs & architectural styles.  I've had fun shopping for just the right combination for our new home.
My inspiration is endless for his table!

My front runner: Eames Molded Plastic Dowel Leg side chair- white or black?!

  1. I love how this post is written! I've always had a soft spot for the Saarinen pedestal table. They are great for smaller spaces because of the single stem, you can fit more people. I want to replace my round white table with one soon... I also love the oval coffee tables buy you need a lot of space for that.
