The beauty of the Tulip Table starts with the base. The flower like stem 'grows' from the foot to the top, blooming like the flower they are so rightfully named after. The base after all, is what initially stood this design out from all the others with its mid 1950's conception. With a central pedestal, the need for a 'mess of legs' as Saarinen put it, would be gone and the possibility to sit unabated was born.
And this set is special too, special because of the beauty and elegance that derives from the natural stone from the Carrara region in Tuscany. Whilst on the one hand we love it for being durable, being heat resistant and being comfortable, we also love it because it quite simply looks good, or amazing actually.
This is a beautiful stunning dining set, with a size perfect for most. The 170cm gives place for six persons and looks equally at home in a smaller or bigger space. Flanked by six of the best, the Tulip Side Chairs do look quite something when positioned against the table they were always meant to accompany. Apart from being visually stunning, the Tulip Marble table and chairs are practical, functional, versatile and dependable.
In need of a change? an upgrade? Perhaps it is a replacement you seek or something bold and new? Look no further than this gorgeous dining set with a Carrara or Arabescato Marble top and six Tulip Chairs. You would never guess it was designed in the mid 1950's as it simply looks perfect for the interiors of today.

Our Tulip Tables & Chairs use cast Aluminium bases which provide super tensile strength to cope with heavy Marble tops, yet light enough to provide the ability to move easily.
All marble tops are solid one-piece cuts of natural marble, no joins, no manufacturing. Sometimes natural quartz can occur within the stone and are perfectly normal.
Marble is cut, polished and crated at source in Italy & Spain, we therefore cannot dictate individual marble patterns on order as it is essential the heavy marble remains in transport crates for their safe moving.
The Walnut Veneer uses real American Walnut top layer, finished in a preservative lacquer.
Laminate tops are cut moulded wood, painted with 3 layers and lacquer finished.
Our Tulip Chair cushions are made from a velveteen synthetic fabric, machine washable at lower temperatures. Please do not tumble dry.
