Coveting saarinen

We are eyeing on the replica of the Saarinen dining table. It comes in black marble top *inhale* The hubz and I are such vainpots, especially when it comes to our home. But it goes beyond vanity, I LOVE Eero Saarinen's purist approach to architecture and interior design. Basically the designer reduced his idea to an effective structural solution. His exact words were "The underside of typical chairs and tables makes a confusing, unrestful world. I wanted to clear up the slum of legs." I also love that he has collaborated with one of my favorite furniture designers of all time, Charles Eames in the 1930s that led to the creation of the Womb and Tulip chairs.
