Euro Saarinen first produced his iconic Saarinen tulip table in the 1950s and it was a hit in mod homes of the 60s. It’s popularity lives on in today’s homes because of its style and functionality.
I heart pedestal tables, because they give more room for chair and people legs! It’s so irritating to constantly bump your chair into table legs, right?
Of course, the tulip table is right at home in modern clean-lined spaces like this one. They have always married well with other international style or mid-century modern icons, such as an Eames’ molded plastic chair or Saarinen’s tulip chair.
Saarinen tulip tables are everywhere, and not just in modern spaces. They actually work great paired artfully with traditional furnishings.
A tulip table with mix-and-match chairs, funky fabrics, and fun art create an eclectic masterpiece of a room, like this one.
I love it with these Frenchy blue chairs and a zebra rug!
