One of my best girlfriends recently told me that she and her husband were considering investing in a Saarinen tulip table. I quickly said great idea, and I can’t wait until I can also invest in such a classic. It was designed more than 50 years ago by Eero Saarinen and has remained a design icon since-frequently popping up in decor magazines and all over the blogosphere. Said friend didn’t know what chairs to pair the table with and I said I have about a dozen images of the table in my inspiration file. The best thing about the table is its versality-it can go super modern or can stay somewhat traditional depending on the chairs. So here you go…
There are so many things I love about this room, but the focus is the table. Here it is paired with the Tulip Chairs which again keep it modern, but the rest of the furnishings add an almost vintage touch.
The Saarinen is such a classic that pretty much anything goes. KGT-I hope one or all of the images inspires you!
PS-DWR is having its annual Knoll Sale-15% off which makes it an even better reason to invest in a Saarinen.
