Eero Saarinen Tulip Side Table Wood Top Reproduction
Pedestal tulip end tables have been the one of the most popular items for dressing a modern home with functional design. Here, the saarinen design is used as a tribute to the simple design and can be used throughout the home.
Made of solid marble, the top is smooth and polished with plenty of marble character. Unique in their own, no 2 are the same. In his purist approach to design, Finnish-born Eero Saarinen sought out the essential idea and reduced it to the most effective structural solution. "The underside of typical chairs and tables makes a confusing, unrestful world," explained Saarinen. "I wanted to clear up the slum of legs." In his pedestal collection, which includes a dining, coffee and side table, Saarinen realized his ideal of formal unity: "Every significant piece of furniture has a holistic structure." Winner of the 1969 Museum of Modern Art Award.
