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 Rove Classics Marble Tulip Table series was inspired by Finnish mid-century architect and designer Eero Saarinen. His unique creation of a single pedestal base that could support a heavy top without wobbling was the result of his desire to unclutter the unnecessary elements in life. Always faithful, these reproductions stay true to Saarinen's original ideas and designs. This oval dining piece features genuine Carrara marble sourced exclusively from the stone quarries in Italy, smooth beveled edges and a strong cast aluminium base using the same techniques as the original 1956 design.

Finnish American designer Eero Saarinen (1910 - 1961) was famous for his flexible style, which varied from pared-down silhouettes to cold rationalism. Throughout his career, Saarinen remained close friends of the Eames and Florence Knoll, whom he had collaborated with in product design and production over the years. Saarinen's work has accredited him as being one of the great masters of the mid-century.
