Saarinen Dining Table
Round Surface, 47" Wide

designed by Eero Saarinen
from Knoll

At A Glance:
Saarinen Dining TableThe Saarinen Dining Table is aptly described as having graceful curves and polished surfaces. And with a pedestal base beyond compare it is slight, modern, and impossibly elegant. Created by (you guessed it) Eero Saarinen, this 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!
  • Having one in your home is a like having a work of art (that you can eat on).
  • It's also like having a work of art that you've collaborated on, because it's available in a wide range of finishes and materials.

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. But if you love it, you probably know just where to use it.

The Bottom Line:
The Eero Saarinen Dining Table is - first and foremost - a pure table. It is the work of an essentialist who boiled concepts and functions down to their basic attributes. The Saarinen Dining Table is an effectively 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 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!

Eero Saarinen, originally from Finland, would become one of the most renowned designers of the mid-twentieth century. After studying architecture at Yale, Saarinen collaborated with contemporary Charles Eames and designed numerous furniture classics and buildings that would help define American style and aesthetics.

Saarinen's most famous works in the Knoll collection are the Womb Chair and Tulip Chair, but he also designed a series of dining and side tables as well as office-oriented chairs. His architectural achievements include the Gateway Arch in St. Louis and the Dulles Airport in Washington DC.

It is really more than just a table!

Comments about Knoll 47" Round Saarinen Dining Table:

This is a true double threat piece of furniture. While it is a table, and a functional one at that, it is also truly a piece of art. It is lovely, and its design is so fluid. This is a piece that I will never be parting with.

Comments about Knoll 47" Round Saarinen Dining Table:

I could not be happier with this purchase. It is one of the most stunning dining room tables you can buy. And it may be an optical illusion, but the lack of four legs makes the space the table resides in, appear larger than it actual is.
