What's To Like:
- The simple beauty of the table, to start with.

- This table qualifies for museum induction, and as far as art goes it's incredibly useful.
What's Not to Like:
As with all the tables in this series, its design is very specific ... and therefore self-selecting. It isn't going to fit in perfectly with just any design scheme. But when it does fit in, it really makes a statement.

The Eero Saarinen Side Table is - first and foremost - a pure table. It is the work of an essentialist who boiled concepts and functions down to their irremovable attributes.

I wanted to clear up the slum of legs." To accomplish this, the Saarinen Side Table is on a pedestal, unencumbered by the "slum of legs," and easy to use for the whole family. The table is available with a wide variety of top and base finishes.
