Saarinen Dining Table by Knoll Oval Surface, 78" Wide designed by Eero Saarinen
The Saarinen Dining Table, created by (you guessed it) Eero Saarinen, is the ultimate distillation of a kitchen or dining room table. Perfectly round, perfectly symmetrical, and perfectly modern, it's a classic piece from an all time great designer.
What's to Like:
The table is a true classic - we're not just saying that! - and having one in your home is a like having a work of art (that you eat on). It's also like having a work of art you collaborated on, because it's available in a wide range of looks and styles. Get a marbled top, a plain colored top - you make the choice, and make the table your own. You can even choose the size, as small as 36" and as large as 60".
What's Not to Like:
This is an uber-modern table. If your kitchen is wood accented, or has a rustic or southern feel, this table can really clash with what you've got going on. It's sleek and contemporary, to a fault.
The chance to own an all time classic piece of furniture is hard to pass up. But make sure it's going to fit into your kitchen or dining room!
The Eero Saarinen Dining Table is first and foremost a pure table. It is the work of an essentialist, boiling concepts and functions down to their invaluable attributes. The Saarinen Dining Table is an effective and beautiful structure, but never a showy or unnecessary one. From Saarinen himself: "The underside of typical chairs and tables makes a confusing, unrestful world. I wanted to clear up the slum of legs." To accomplish this, the Saarinen Dining Table is on a pedestal, unencumbered by the "slum of legs," and easy to use for the whole family. The tables are available with veneer, laminate, or marble tops with a base in black, white or the new platinum 50th Anniversary finish.
The Round Saarinen Dining Table is available in 5 different width. The Oval Dining Table is available in 2 different widths.
Care and maintenance: It is strongly recommended that placemats be employed when using the table. As with any piece of furniture, we recommend that you use adequate heat protection when placing hot dishes on your table.
This table has a metal base. Lift table when moving it or place floor-protecting pads on the bottom of the base to ensure that your floor is not marked or damaged.
