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”.
The Eero Saarinen Marble Tulip Table series was inspired by mid-century Finnish architect and designer Eero Saarinen. He was driven to streamline tables and chairs to maximize space by eliminating unnecessary parts like support legs. Instead, Saarinen utilized modern technology to create a stable single base that could support a heavy table top without wobbling. These reproductions stay true to this idea and design. These pieces feature genuine Cararra marble sourced exclusively from Cararra 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 White Marble tables are especially stunning when matched with the Eero 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.
