This table, which was designed by Eero for Knoll in 1956, is so genius that it will never go out of style and has remained a design icon since-frequently popping up in decor magazines and all over the blogosphere. 

The Tulip table is the perfect example of form following function and resulting in a beautiful design. It works with so many different looks - straight up mid-century modern, space-age, eclectic, mixed in with antiques, as the only white thing in the room or in an all-white room, the list goes on. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen it paired with a chair that didn't look great with it, whether it's the matching Tulip chairs or a cafe chair.

I don't like matchy matchy so taking the clean lines of the tulip and blending them with an old wood antique is more my direction.  You could surf the internet for an hour and find countless examples of combinations - all shapes, sizes and colors. 

Actually - you don't have to surf - I've already done it. 

Love the brown wood, the walls, lamps and the table.  Eclectic and  working it.
