Mid-Century Dining Room Tables
Dining room tables are one of the most used and abused pieces of furniture ever. Families with children can attest to the fact that dining room tables must be sturdy and durable in order to withstand the heavy wear and tear. Even in families without small children, the everyday use that dining room tables experience needs a table that is up to the task. Many people want a dining room table like the Eero Saarinen Marble Tulip Table, a work of art as well as a functional and durable table space.
The Eero Saarinen Marble Tulip Table is constructed of a solid white Carrara marble with natural grey veins displaying across the surface. The bottom of the table is made up of fiberglass and can be chosen in white or black, depending upon personal preference. The designer, Eero Saarinen, is a Finnish American architect who liked clean lines and no fuss shapes. He did not like what he called a 'slum of legs' that most tables had during his time period. These beautiful tulip shaped tables he designed have the one base as support, no other legs.
The single stem design, much like a tulip or an elegant wineglass, brings a classy , romantic style to the dining room that holds this lovely dining table. The table height is at 30 inches and the shape is always round. The actual diameter of the table, however, varies as there are four options in size to choose from. These flexibilities make this table ideal for any size dining room, whether it be a tiny apartment sized space or a full sized dining room in a good sized house.
The Saarinen Tulip Dining Table compliments any dining room or space that is decorated in simple, clean lines with furniture that is classic and modern. The modern style is not for everyone, but those who enjoy such classic lines will appreciate the artsy style of the Saarinen tulip table design. In addition to being a great design to look at and admire, this dining table functions beautifully as it should and wipes clean with minimal effort.
