Eero Saarinen Tables

Finnish-American modernist icon Eero Saarinen might be best known for his architectural works — the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, the TWA Flight Center in New York and Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C., for instance — but his vintage tables and other original contributions to mid-century furniture design should not be overlooked.

Legendary furnishings designed by Saarinen like his durable side tables, the Womb chair, the Tulip chair and the Pedestal table are still frequently used in interiors today — and often copied at more affordable prices. Born in Finland, Saarinen immigrated to the United States with his family at age 13. His father, Eliel Saarinen, led the Department of Architecture and Urban Design at the famous Cranbrook Academy of Art outside Detroit, a school that became a hotbed for mid-century modern designers. The younger Saarinen worked and taught at the academy, too, befriending design pioneers such as Charles and Ray Eames, Harry Bertoia and Florence Knoll.

The Pedestal series grew out of Saarinen’s desire “to clear up the slum of legs” beneath tables. His first foray into the concept of a streamlined undercarriage was a table designed for the Kingswood School for girls, Cranbrook’s partner institution, which saw the four legs of a table cinched together to make room for chairs and legs beneath it. This piece of furniture would ultimately lead Saarinen to design a model with a circular top that sat upon a single swooped cast-aluminum column that flared out into a circular base — the Pedestal table, today manufactured by Knoll with tabletops available in a variety of materials. 

On 1stDibs, the collection of vintage Eero Saarinen tables includes Pedestal dining tables, oval coffee tables, Tulip side tables with Verde Alpi marble tabletops and more.

Questions About Eero Saarinen Tables
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2024
    A tulip table is a dining table or occasional table of a certain shape. It’s typically characterized by a slender stem-like pedestal base and a round tabletop. Its name is drawn from the name given to chairs that are part of a collection that Finnish-American designer and architect Eero Saarinen created for iconic mid-century furniture manufacturer Knoll during the 1950s.

    The tables in Saarinen’s acclaimed series were called Pedestal tables, while the chairs were called Tulip chairs, armless or not, owing to their flower bulb-like shape. Today, design lovers everywhere frequently refer to Saarinen's Pedestal tables as tulip tables, and any table that looks like a Pedestal table is generally referred to as a tulip table, whether or not Saarinen had anything to do with it.

    No, Eero Saarinen was not a postmodernist. The work of the Finnish-American architect and furniture designer is primarily associated with modernism. His best known designs for seating and tables, created during the 1940s and 1950s, were manufactured by Knoll, a furniture brand and a chief influence in the rise of modern design in the United States.

    Postmodern design was a short-lived movement that manifested itself chiefly in Italy and the United States in the early 1980s (Saarinen died in 1961).

    Eero Saarinen is considered a modern architect for a number of reasons. An innovative merging of the International Style and the influence of Frank Lloyd Wright can be found in his acclaimed building projects and monuments. He worked with steel and concrete, just as his modernist peers had, and the neo-futuristic forms that characterize his architecture are those commonly associated with modernism.

    Through his work as an architect and designer, Saarinen was a prime mover in the introduction of modernism into the American mainstream. Particularly affecting were the organic, curvilinear forms seen in Saarinen’s furniture and his best known structures: the gull-winged TWA Flight Center at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York, Dulles International Airport in Virginia and the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri.

    Saarinen had a peerless modernist pedigree. His father, Eliel Saarinen, was an eminent Finnish architect who in 1932 became the first head of the Cranbrook Academy of Art in suburban Detroit. The school became synonymous with progressive design and decorative arts in the United States, and while studying there the younger Saarinen met and befriended several luminaries of mid-century modernism, among them Harry Bertoia and Charles and Ray Eames.

    Like all modernist designers of the mid-century era, Saarinen was interested in the new technology and new and venturesome applications for materials that became widely available for the production of domestic goods in the postwar era. Thanks to Florence Knoll, a pioneering designer in her own right, his famous designs for seating and tables, created during the 1940s and 1950s, were manufactured by Knoll, which was a prominent influence in the rise of modern design in the United States.

    The history of Eero Saarinen's Womb Chair dates back to the late 1940s. It was then that designer and entrepreneur Florence Knoll challenged her friend, Eero Saarinen, to create the most comfortable chair ever made. To succeed at the task, Saarinen sought to evoke what he imagined was the comfortable, secure feeling of being in the womb and set out to design the now iconic chair. Production of the Womb chair began in 1948, and it didn't take long for the seat to become a cultural phenomenon. In the decade following its release, it appeared in a Coca-Cola commercial, a New Yorker magazine cartoon and a Norman Rockwell painting on the cover of The Saturday Evening Post. Today, Knoll offers the seat in 15 upholstery options, and when Saarinen's famous TWA terminal reopened as a hotel in 2019, Womb chairs were featured prominently in the guest rooms.
