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 54" circular table from the collection. Constructed from molded, cast aluminum polished and coated in a tough, abrasion-resistant Rilsan finish. The 54" 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 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.
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: 54"W X 28.25"H
Long wait for knoll table
By: Charles S., Designer (Los Angeles ,CA)
We bought our knoll marble table on line very easy to use website However we waited 14 weeks seemed like forever. The website said it would take up to 14 weeks and it did Great service great price We got the white glove service but when the table arrived it had 2 small chips on the edge of the table. Very sad and disappointed because there is no returns on this table. I feel we got a good price but for a defective or damaged table. Not sure if table was damaged from white glove shippers or it came this way. What I do know is I can't return it

I have been eying the Saarinen for ages and waited (not so) patiently for the once a year Knoll sale. Well it was worth the wait and it looks beautiful with my Danish Mid-Century modern chairs! YLiving staff answered my questions about the coating and everything was professional and timely.
Love this table more than I thought I would!

I knew I'd like it, but it's surpassed my expectations. Looks better in my 1950s California rancher than I thought it would. This table goes with any decor or architectural style.
Beautiful table !

This Knoll table is the best reproduction of the original. Quality is top notch and the table looks great.

The Saarinen table is perfect. We have a toddler and were worried about both the sturdiness/stability to the table, as well as how easily the table cleans up... both are not an issueÃ¢ÂÂit's really sturdy (will not tip) and cleans up so nicely. We couldn't be happier with our table and with YLiving. Allison helped answer all of our questions and was so enjoyable to speak with. Seems everyone at YLiving is passionate about design + furniture which just adds a layer of knowledge and support not available at other sites/stores.
Best design ever, worldwide. Top quality.

Great quality, sleek design. Amazing piece!
This table exceeded my expectation and put an instant smile on my face.

Beautiful design and very well-made. I love the table top's tapered rim as well as the smaller diameter of the pedestal's base. Easy to clean and comfortable to sit at for long periods of time. Its love at first sight for everyone who stops by.
