White Carrara is a natural stone from a bedrock quarry in Carrara, Italy. White Carrara is more expensive than other marbles for its naturally seamless white background and fewer veins. This white marble is the same used by master artist Michelangelo for the famous sculpture, “David”.
There is an inherent practicality in the clean, flowing lines of the Rove Concepts Eero Saarinen Tulip Oval Table series. Not only beautiful, the tables feature single stem bases, which allow for greater ease of movement and increased legroom. The dismissal of traditional legs create a remarkably spacious experience. In addition to their practicality, these pieces feature genuine Carrara marble sourced exclusively from Carrara quarries in Italy. This marble is highly valuable due to its durability and beauty, which is why Michelangelo sculpted his masterpiece "David" from it. Highly adaptable to any interior, these tables are especially striking paired with the Saarinen Tulip Chairs.

To his detriment or benefit, Finnish American designer Eero Saarinen was famous for his flexible style. He believed that his clients were “co-creators,” which led him to adjust his approach to design according to what they wanted instead of strictly adhering to his aesthetic. Despite the criticism this led to, he remains one of the most well-known designers of the mid-century period.
Saarinen’s architectural and product design style varied from pared-down, curving silhouettes to cold rationalism. His work was present from bomb disassembly manuals to Time magazine to countless editorials.
He used his sculpture and architecture training to make some of the most recognizable modern pieces, such as the Tulip Table series. Saarinen was a leader of his time.
