About the Designer
Eero Saarinen Eero Saarinen Finland (1910 - 1961)

Eero Saarinen shared the same birthday as his father, Eliel Saarinen. They emigrated to the United States of America in 1923, when Eero was thirteen. He grew up in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, where his father was a teacher at the Cranbrook Academy of Art and he took courses in sculpture and furniture design there. He had a close relationship with fellow students Charles and Ray Eames, and became good friends with Florence Knoll (née Schust). Beginning in September 1929, he studied sculpture at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris, France. He then went on to study at the Yale School of Architecture, completing his studies in 1934. Subsequently, he toured Europe and North Africa for a year and returned for a year to his native Finland, after which he returned to Cranbrook to work for his father and teach at the academy. He became a naturalized citizen of the U.S. in 1940. Saarinen was recruited by Donal McLaughlin, an architectural school friend from his Yale days, to join the military service in the Office of Strategic Services (OSS). Saarinen was assigned to draw illustrations for bomb disassembly manuals and to provide designs for the Situation Room in the White House. Saarinen worked full time for the OSS until 1944. After his father's death in 1950, Saarinen founded his own architect's office, "Eero Saarinen and Associates". Eero Saarinen died of a brain tumor in 1961 at the age of 51

''The underside of typical chairs and tables makes a confusing, unrestful world,'' said esteemed Finnish designer Eero Saarinen. ''I wanted to clear up the slum of legs.'' Thus in 1957 Saarinen unveiled his ground-breaking collection of pedestal coffee, dining and side tables, whose simple elegance has endured for 50 years. Stylish and modern, the Saarinen Oval Dining Table is a design masterpiece that fits seamlessly into any environment. Eero Saarinen might be considered by some to be a purist when it came to his approach towards architecture and interior design. He sought the essential idea and reduced it to the most effective structural solution within an overall unity of design. When he designed his pedestal collection, including the Oval Dining Table, Saarinen realized his ideal of formal unity: ''Every significant piece of furniture from the past has a holistic structure.'' To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Saarinen's revolutionary Tulip Collection, Knoll has introduced a platinum finish option and has reintroduced teak and rosewood tabletop finishes. *This product is made to order and thus customer orders cannot be canceled once the products go into production

Knoll ® Saarinen Oval Dining Table

Stunning looking, but high maintenance

 from Davis, CA– Verified Buyer

I bought this in coated marble top in medium size. It looks stunning in my formal dinning room with a FLOS track light. I wish I bought the large size, though. The medium size can sit 6-8 people comfortably, but I had to squeeze in 11 people a couple of times, and clearly this is not a comfortable solution. Also, one really needs to be careful with the coated marble top. Once I let a small wine stain sit there for a whole night and then couldn't get it off. In a panic mode, I scrubbed it rather hard which scratched off the coating. I called Knoll to see whether they can fix it, but did not receive much help. Was only told that I need to seal that part, otherwise air will get in and the entire coating can bubble up! Finally found an Internet forum discussing the maintenance of this table; followed the suggestions there and bought a stone coating solution to fix the problem. The scratch is still noticeable since that part is not glossy as the rest of the table top, but so far no bubbling (it has been a year now).

A classic

 from Boston

My parents bought these tables in the late '60s when they first married. They still look great. In the divorce they each got different pieces. My mom has this dining room table and had it restored when the laminate on the top started to separate a few years ago. The repair wasn't expensive and the table looks white and sleek as ever.

Dad's other Knoll pieces are doing great too. They went Knoll crazy all those years ago! Interesting to see it popular again.

The reason for this review is to give a bit of advice. The table and the matching Tulip chairs are very very heavy. If you buy the table, I would not get the Tulip chairs that swivel. As kids we were always banging the side of the swivel chairs into the table, and getting yelled at. We didn't even mean to swivel them, it just happened when trying to push and wiggle out of the heavy chairs. If you are looking at the Tulips, save yourself some wear and tear and get the kind that don't swivel!
