Dark Walnut Wood Tulip Dining Table - Oval
Traditional Saarinen Tulip Tables are round, and repeated imitation may have rendered that boring. The Dark Walnut Wood Tulip Table in oval reinterprets the design in two distinct ways; by featuring a walnut veneered table-top with an elliptical/oval shape instead of the conventional round one. This small change makes this table special because of its unique take on the original design. Additionally, the white cast-aluminum base with a semi-glossy finish along with the chip-resistant table-top surface treatment offer excellent durability and resilience. Combined with the easy assembly and guarantee of quality, the Dark Walnut Wood Tulip Dining Table in oval is one of the best Tulip Table interpretations in the market.Material & Feature:

Finnish-American Eero Saarinen (1910 - 1961) was famous for varying his style according to the demands of the project. His father taught at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, where Eero took classes and formed relationships with fellow student Florence Knoll. Saarinen studied sculpture at the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere in Paris, France, and later at the Yale School of Architecture, completing his studies in 1934. He joined the US Military, where he was assigned to draw illustrations for bomb disassembly manuals and to provide designs for the Situation Room in the White House. He founded his own office in 1950, after his father's death. His first success, the "Tulip Chair" was produced by the Knoll company, beginning a long relationship between Knoll and Saarinen. While still working for his father, he won the design competition for the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, in St. Louis, aka the Gateway Arch.
