That mid century icon of modern design is now a classic staple in well appointed homes all over the world. In the 1950's Eero Saarinen designed a pedestal table commonly called the Tulip Table. It was a brilliant piece of design, incorporating, strength, beauty, and function. I have the 1960s Burke brand version like this one pictured below in a Nashville loft, but in black. The Burke tables are heavier than the Euro versions.
And last but certainly not least, the most time enduring classic every home can use is the Louis chair.
And there is one more timeless item you can gift yourself this season. And of course that is fresh flowers. Flowers can breathe life into a room like nothing else.
My small apartment is never ever without them.
