Design by Eero Saarinen, 1956.
In his purist approach to architecture and interior design, Eero Saarinen sought the essential idea and reduced it to the most effective structural solution within an overall unity of design. The 16-Inch Round Side Table features Saarinen's remarkable tulip-base silhouette with a single stem base taking the place of traditional legs. The table is constructed from molded, cast aluminum polished and coated in a tough, abrasion-resistant Rilsan finish. Available in wood, laminate, coated and natural marble and natural granite top finishes, in a wide range of colors. The base finish is available in White, Black or Platinum.
Note that coated marble tops are offered in two finishes: standard Polished or Satin. The satin finished marble creates a matte sheen that gives the top a natural honed appearance while offering the same protective qualities as the Polished polyester coated marble finish. Satin finish is not available on Natural Marbles.
Saarinen Side Tables with Laminate, Natural Marble, Veneer or Granite tops are Greenguard certified. The Knoll logo is stamped into the base of the Saarinen Tables. Tops have nameplate with designer's signature. Marbles with a polyester coating will yellow over time. Not suitable for outdoor use.
Material(s): Molded cast aluminum with laminate, wood veneer, marble or granite
Dimensions: Dia 16.25" H 20"
This table looks clean and would fit in any situation.

I have looked at many side tables or accent tables. The saarinen is the best quality table like this out there. You can confiqure it with many different bases or tops. Be careful on which top you choose the final price may be higher than you wanted. I got the all white stovetop with the white base. This is stunning in the correct location and I waited fot the Knoll sale which gave me 15% and free delivery.
Table is very attractive, versatile, and extremely well made.

After much research, I purchased a Saarinen tulip 16" round side table from YLiving. The table has a white base and arabescato satin finished marble top. It looks great between my Barcelona chairs or next to the Eames lounge chair. The customer reps for YLiving were very helpful in the selection process, and they seemed to always be reachable by phone. The table was delivered on time and in perfect condition. I am extremely pleased with this purchase and would highly recommend YLiving.
Totally worth the price! A classic to keep!

Perfect as expected

Too many options of where to put this table because it's perfect. I keep moving it around and now it's back in the place I intended it. Considering buying another.

I love this table! I got it in Arabescato with a white base. I chose YLiving because it doesn't charge sales tax or shipping, which is a huge savings on a purchase like this. I highly recommend this table.

Gorgeous side table. Great craftsmanship and streamlined style. It can be moved easily and the base slips underneath a couch almost like a tray table.
Expensive but worth it
By: Rocky D., Homeowner (East Bay, CA, USA)
The Saarinen side table is jewel-like as a piece of accent furniture. The fit and finish are impeccable. The white base and white marble top version is especially elegant. I'm tempted to buy another one.
