Lusting: Saarinen Tulip Dining Table

Now that you've had a peek into our kitchen remodel...you might notice that there are a few small details that need my attention. Besides window treatments, my absolute lust object du jour is the Saarinen Tulip Dining Table. Preferably with a white base and a walnut table top to match our floors, of course. To say I've been scouring the interwebs night and day would be an understatement. And yes, they exist but our eating area calls for a very specific size...as in, it must be between 40"-47" in diameter. Did I mention I refuse to pay 2K for it? Cool...glad we got that settled.

Here's my baby:

Ain't she a beauty? It goes perfectly with our West Elm chairs. We found this exact model, refurbished, on a new-to-me website and store located right here in Chicago. It's a gem! First we located it on Furnishly, and then we messaged the vendor, An Orange Moon, for a pick up time. Hello Tulip Table in my kitchen! {I'll have to take some snaps for ya because it really does complete the room}

And here's some Saarinen eye candy for your viewing pleasure. Pinterest=trouble!


Go check out Furnishly -- it's got some way cool pieces if you are into that sort of thing!
