The table is in really nice condition, showing very little wear.

A drop of magic — Eero Saarinen’s iconic dining table began with his observation that “the underside of typical tables and chairs makes a confusing, unrestful world.” A master of expressive, sculptural forms, he designed the Saarinen Table with a pedestal base inspired by a drop of high-viscosity liquid, a design that also allows for more legroom.

Architect Eero Saarinen was a genius at creating expressive sculptural forms. From his TWA Terminal (now the TWA Hotel) at New York’s JFK Airport to the Gateway Arch in St. Louis to his Pedestal Table (1956), there’s a magic in everything he created. The Saarinen Dining Table, as he explained in a 1956 Time magazine cover story, was designed to “clear up the slum of legs in the U.S. home.” Later that year, he completed the Pedestal Table, which stands on a gracefully shaped cast-aluminum base. This is the authentic Pedestal Table by Knoll. It’s stamped with the KnollStudio logo and Eero Saarinen’s signature.
