Inspired by the original marble Tulip Table by Eero Saarinen, the lacquer finished Tulip Table features FAS grade American timber with smoothed and beveled edges that mimic the curvature of the original design.
Sophisticated, slick, smooth. It is impossible to deny the difference that Black Lacquer makes in a home or office. Make the bold decision to add this theatrical veneer to your space.
White Lacquer is the ultimate chameleon. It can be futuristic, minimal, eclectic, bohemian or anything else you can imagine. Give yourself endless options with this gorgeous, flexible finish.
Eero Saarinen’s Tulip Table collection was an exercise in form that produced some of the most recognizable shapes in modern furniture design. The single stem eliminated Saarinen’s concern over the “slum of legs” that he considered many of the tables and chairs of his time to have. This sculptured, organic design has been realized from a number of different materials over the last 50 years or so as technologies have changed, culminating in the Eero Saarinen Lacquer Tulip Tables. With their iconic stems resembling both the tulip and a wineglass, these luxurious unified products inspire a sense of romance and class. Available in a variety of sizes, these pieces adapt to any interior and are especially striking when paired 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.
