The Versatile Saarinen Tulip Table

Hi lovelies!  Over the weekend, I was asked for some design advice about a solution for a dining table for a breakfast nook.  I couldn’t get the idea of a tulip table out of my head.  I love their clean lines and they work perfect in a small space such as a breakfast nook.  Standing alone, they are not 100% my style, but when paired with more traditional chairs or elements, the tulip table definitely works for me.

I think my favorite combination is when the table is used in a banquette as in the photo above. Perfection!  Can you believe how many different types of chairs this table can be paired with?

You can find knockoffs at all different price  points.  You can even find them in different colors and with marble tops.

This one from Ikea is only $179!

What do you think?  Too versatile or too modern?

Also, if you haven’t already done so, you can enter to win a Delta Intuition showerhead here.  Perfect time to upgrade your bathroom!

Until next time . . .
