The Two Things You Need to Know about the Tulip Table

Estimated Time to Read: 3 minutes

Tulip tables, the epitome of clean and modern furniture designs, revolutionized the way décor could be streamlined without compromising on the aesthetics of a space.

It was designed in 1957 by Eero Saarinen, the Finnish-American architect who was also a visionary industrial designer. The design came about when Saarinen wanted to solve the problem of clutter under the dining tables with just too many furniture legs clobbering for space.

Here are two things to know about the Tulip table.

1. The Tulip table is a classic design that is also relevant for modern design sensibilities

Nowadays, trends in interior design appear on the scene to fade away really soon – only to be replaced by the next new thing. But there is no replacing some furniture designs because they may just be beyond the trends and the fashionable cycles. One such design is the Tulip table.

The Tulip table design –

It consists of a round and flat circular base with a stem that supports the round table top – simple yet elegant. The top is often round in shape but it is also available in oval designs. You can get the top in different materials such as Italian marble, other stones, and wood. The base is often crafted in aluminum or some sort of metal.

Even after so many decades since it was first conceptualized and designed, the Tulip table can augment any contemporary décor style. It can also fit perfectly well in traditional homes.

Its versatility –

Depending on the color of the Tulip table, you can place it just about in any room. You can choose an elegant white or black table for a modern office setting. You can pair it with chairs rimmed with chrome for that classic yet modern twist to your office. You can fit it in the corner for your meetings or to use it for any purpose for that matter.

If you have a monochrome setting in your living room, a Tulip table in white with black chairs can bring the whole space together without overwhelming it. Use it with colorful chairs such as blue, orange, or red to contrast with the table in white or black. For understated elegance, use the white Tulip table with gray chairs.

Due to its minimal design, it allows the rest of the space to be designed with more accent pieces. The Tulip table doesn’t overpower a space; rather adds to its décor.

You can pair the Tulip table with Tulip chairs or with other designs. Tulip chairs are one-legged chairs that were designed to use with the table.

The beauty of the Tulip table is that it pairs seamlessly with any chair design. You can simply change the chair designs around a Tulip table and watch space transform itself with one simple design flourish.

Depending on the lights you use over the table and the chairs you use around it; you can create a contemporary or traditional look with minimal effort.

2. The Tulip table is the solution to a real interior design problem

The Tulip table was first and foremost a design solution to a common problem. The overcrowding of legs (both furniture and human) often made the seating uncomfortable for the users. It was later that the table was also recognized for its elegant and really sleek design. It was very clever indeed.

By varying the size of the table top, the Tulip table can be used as a dining table, an office table, or a kitchen table. Use it in the corner with just one table and a small sofa set against the wall if you wish to create cozy corners in your house. If the space for a dining table is inadequate in your house, the Tulip table can fit right in a corner.

Its utility is the foremost reason that the Tulip table is still available as the Saarinen original as well as a reproduction. The reproduction tables are more affordable than the original label; allowing its use for any design budget and for any home.

Due to modern manufacturing facilities and techniques, it is now possible to own a quality Tulip table even with limited budgets.
