Description Eero Saarinen’s Pedestal Collection is one of the most recognizable forms in furniture design. Colloquially known as the “Tulip”, Saarinen’s mission was to resolve the chaos under furniture of the 1950’s. In a world where brown wood table legs clashed with their legged chair counterparts; his solution was a single “Pedestal”, a uni-leg which met the floor with such grace never before seen in furniture. The revolutionary form gained popularity and the collection grew to include Chairs, Dining Tables, and as shown here; Coffee Tables.

Saarinen excelled in his sense of proportion, a quality very much true in this design. The surface space of the 35” diameter is ample yet visually and physically quite minimal. Whether the table is paired with lounge chairs or nestled within a sectional; it is a design essential which every home needs. The piece is designed with satin White Laminate and finished with a white painted cast Aluminum base.
Styles / Movements Contemporary, Mid Century, Minimalist
