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.

Brand Beginnings Knoll was founded in 1938 by Hans and Florence Knoll who sought to create new types of furniture and environments for the home and workplace. Their approach was to join craftsmanship with technology through the use of design and to create beautiful home furnishings that stood the test of time visually, functionally and practically. The pair sought out designers willing to change the landscape of modern design, daring to ask how furniture could work better. These landmark collaborations, with pioneering modernists like Eero Saarinen, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Harry Bertoia and Richard Schultz built a brand that today contains many of the hallmarks of modern design.
Knoll Today Knoll enjoys brand recognition throughout the world for its modern classics as well as groundbreaking new products formulated under new deigner partnerships. Few companies can match the array of Knoll products, which combine a modernist aesthetic with residential appeal. This point of view nurtured by Florence Knoll, has become the trademark of Knoll design. Today, it connects to a new generation seeking workplaces and homes that are comfortable for and beautiful for everyday living.
A Signature Piece The highly coveted Barcelona® Chair is, with little doubt, the signature Knoll piece. Designed in 1929 by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, it is one of the most recognized objects of the last century, and an icon of the modern movement. Skilled craftsman construct this exquisite chair by hand every day. From leather produced from a single cowhide, 40 individual leather panels are cut, hand-welted, and hand-tufted with leather buttons to upholster the chair. Premium cushions are highly resilient with a down-like softness that surrounds the sitter in luxurious comfort. Cushions are suspended by upholstery straps in cowhide belting leather over a metal frame that is hand-ground and hand-buffed to a mirror finish. Meticulously detailed, Barcelona continues to appeal to customers worldwide some 85 years after its introduction.
Why Knoll? The Knoll names offers a rich design history – a legacy of iconic designers and inventive new collaborations. Their focus on quality and responsible manufacturing means that each piece transcends multiple generations in both use and appeal. Knoll offers furniture, accessories, textiles, felts and leathers that stimulate the senses and allow you to express who you are and what you value. They take great pride in creating the best possible product and the happiest possible customer.
