Like much of Saarinen's work, his side table was designed as a solution rather than to simply be aesthetically pleasing. It is part of his Pedestal Collection, which was created to solve what Saarinen called the "slum of legs" under most dining tables.
The Saarinen Tulip Side Table features an MDF top in your choice of finish. It is met by a cast aluminum powder coated base. This table adds distinct, retro style to your space in a fun and functional way.
The Star-Crossed Side Table may just be the perfect side / end table. We love this table for so many reasons, and thanks to Sean Dix, who never skimps on style, the Star-Crossed Side Table draws from obvious mid-century modern and Scandinavian influences, yet in and of itself is a distinctly unique instant classic. It's architectural base is defined by intersecting pieces of solid wood that together create a complex yet perfectly symmetrical MC Escher-like form defined by opposites. It's wood base is both sturdy yet lightweight and is available in the FSC-certified American wood of your choice (Ash or Walnut). Its thick glass top is tempered for added physical and thermal durability in your home.
The compact size and interesting pairing of both natural and man-made materials, allows the Porto to complement any transitional commercial or residential space. The end table is able to stand alone, but can also be enhanced with additional, complementing pieces from the Porto Collection.
