maybe my favorite piece of furniture ever?

for sheer versatility and always dynamite good looks, i have to say i think my favorite piece of furniture ever might just be eero saarinen's iconic 1956 tulip table- it seriously NEVER looks bad, no matter where you put it, or with what.

here's a selection of photos from my first ever pinterest board "saarinen tables" to illustrate ('cuz you know, like there aren't already enough hours in my day for what is currrently on my plate, so why not throw one more time killer, like pinterest, into the mix?)

I agree. Love them! Have 1 in my kitchen and 2 others on terraces at Peacock Pavilions. They stand up great outdoors!:-)

The table's lovely, but me, I'm liking all those gorgeous, sinuous bentwood chairs.

It is a good looking table, isn't it? It looks great in every one of these spaces.

I'm considering one for my dining area, they seem kid friendly-ish as opposed to glass.

It really does go with everything.
