Design by Eero Saarinen, 1956.
First introduced in 1956, the Tulip™ Tables demonstrate Eero Saarinen's distinct ability to balance art and technology. Impeccable lines and symmetry mark this 36" circular table from the collection. Constructed from molded, cast aluminum polished and coated in a tough, abrasion-resistant Rilsan finish. The 36" table is 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.
ExtraWhite Marble is currently on product hold/unavailable. Saarinen Dining 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.

Dimensions: 35.75"W X 28.25"H
It's a timeless classic for a reason
By: Annemai, Homeowner (New York)
It's beautiful and perfect size for smallish kitchen and can accommodate 4 people. I've lusted after this table for years -- and designed my kitchen around it. The only reason I did not give it a 5 is that you do have to treat it with kid gloves. Glad that my children are older; if they were younger, not sure the table would survive. YLiving service however is a 5 -- its impeccable.
