Design by Eero Saarinen, 1956.
By Knoll.

Eero Saarinen's distinctive 78-Inch Oval Table is the result of years of research and design revisions by Saarinen. In his search for a table that made sense of comfort, legroom and ample space for seating, the designer arrived at his pedestal base "Tulip" series. Tulip™ Tables are marked by the precise lines and impeccable construction of their central base in molded, cast aluminum that is polished and coated in a tough, abrasion-resistant Rilsan finish. The oblong table top, available in a variety of materials, offers an expansive surface for entertaining or for use as a large office table. And the pedestal base contributes to the table's balanced aesthetic while opening up the space underneath.

Product Features:

  • Beveled-edge table top
  • Table top attaches to pedestal base with threaded rod
  • Table tops offered in a wide range of woods, marbles and granites
  • Heavy molded cast aluminum base, offered in several finishes
  • Laminate, Natural Marble, Veneer and Granite tops are GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified®
  • 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.

Knoll

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.

Some edges of the marble table top chipped during moving. How do I fix this?

Asked by: Norey
Marble can be repaired by a marble repair or restoration company. The good news about marble is that it can be repaired without a replacement being needed! While we cannot endorse a company directly, we always suggest you google marble repair and restoration in your area. With a little research, you can check a repair company's track record on Yelp and the Better Business Bureau to make sure they have experience with this type of repair. Or ask a friend! If you have additional questions we are always happy to help! Our product specialists are available over the phone to help you with a quote or to check the availability of a specific product that may work for your project.
