Saarinen

Eero Saarinen's graceful 1956 design inspired our Saarinen table. The modernist designer strove to eliminate any extraneous parts, including typical table legs. The result is a sculptural form that elevates any space.

    Customer comments about Room & Board Saarinen 78x48 Oval Dining Table:

    I had eyed the oval dining table for years, and am so thrilled to finally own it. The marble is beautiful and flawless, and I've been so careful to always use placemats and wipe up any spills immediately.

    This table is stunning in person. I paired it with wishbone chairs and it makes such a statement in my dining room. It is VERY heavy, and while I'm a little concerned about how I'll ever move it, that's certainly not a reason to pass up such a beautiful piece of furniture. Absolutely worth the money in my opinion!

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery guys were terrific. They carried the very heavy marble top up a flight of stairs to my condo, recognized my other Room & Board pieces, and were just super and friendly and nice while they assembled and then placed the table to my satisfaction.

    This is my third delivery from Room & Board, and they are far and away the best delivery guys I've ever done business with.

    Customer comments about Saarinen 47r Dining Table:

    This isn't the best quality, but it's a cheaper option than other retailers, so I'd expect it to be just ok. It's obviously a beautiful table. My complaint is that the grey marbling looks etched. I can see the spidery lines popping out when the light shines on it a certain way. Plus, there's a tiny hole on the top (this occurred a month after I bought the table). I have no idea how it happened and I'm hoping it doesn't get bigger.

    Customer comments about Saarinen 78x48 Oval Dining Table:

    Mixed feelings about the table. The top is quite handsome, but the underside of the tabletop is as rough as an unhewn board. Be careful not to scrape anything against the underside accidentally or rub a leg against it. We expected a better end to end product from R&B.

          Service and delivery comments:

          I have to comment on the excellent service that Room & Board provided. I bought a floor model version at a discount. When they moved the table to the warehouse, they broke it. Room and Board called, informed me of the situation, and asked me to choose another delivery date for the new table they are replacing it with, at the discounted price. Great Service!

          Customer comments about Saarinen 47r Dining Table:

          I love this table and have coveted it for years. It is about 2K cheaper at R&B than at other retail stores and now I know why. I know that stone can absorb liquids, so I was planning to be careful with red wine, coffee, etc. But with the very first use, I set down some water glasses which left rings on the marble. I'm terribly disappointed - how can a table used for dining be this prone to water? I returned the table and was charged a 10% fee.

          If you want the real Saarinen table, pay full price and get it elsewhere. You get what you pay for.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Yes. I was relieved that Customer Service would allow me to return it.

              Just paid $480 to restore and seal table top - I haven't had a year yet. I hope the seal works better than what was provided at purchase. Not a table for use.

                Customer comments about Room & Board Saarinen 78x48 Oval Dining Table:

                We love the way this table looks but the finish on the marble scratches off way, way too easily, making it very difficult to clean. Major $$$$ spent and the top is already scratched——and by a relatively soft textured sponge. Almost wish I had gotten a cheaper knockoff version elsewhere with a better coat of finish. The design of the table suggests it is meant to be hardy (we thought that's what getting a stone top would mean). Definitely not good if you have kids.

                  I switched to the oval table at the last minute and so glad I did because it is so distinctive and unique. I only have 4 chairs but am thinking of adding two more.
