Lippa Saarinen-style "Tulip" Pedestal Table, Black Purchased this table two years ago from LexMod purveyor of modern replica furniture and have been extremely pleased with it. Table is in the style of the classic Saarinen "Tulip" pedestal tables and is the closest I've found to the Saarinen design minus the Saarinen price. I'm not sure there is an "official licensed reproduction" of Saarinen but this comes close. Table is solid, good construction, durable, great product. This is a versatile table and looks stunning in the home. So many uses for work, dining, holiday display, foyer, gift station, flower table, and more! Constructed of fiberglass The top is still super shiny black fiberglass "scratch- and chip-resistant finish" surfaces (see the reflection of light in all photos) though of course there are some light scratches on the top surface and a few dull areas due to usage. There are also two small cracks I just found in the lacquer on the pedestal (approx. 2.5" long, visible when up close) and another along the base (barely visible). This is normal usage over two years and appears to be surface, not structural. They are currently not producing black pedestal tables in a range of sizes, only see this one and a smaller size in searches online, so the black is a much more rare quantity than the white which can be found everywhere. The 40" diameter starts at $410. not including tax at LexMod and is currently out of stock until at least January 2018. New year, new table! Dimensions: Table top diameter: 40 inches (39.5 inches diameter as per Lex Mod product specs) Table top thickness: 1/2-3/4 inches thick Height: 31 inches (note that this is a little taller than standard 30" tables though LexMod product specs list it as 30 inches) Base: 21.5 inches diameter I am happy to answer any questions via email ahead of time. Table must be picked up from my location. I can remove the screws from table top with you after you arrive, but you must come prepared to carry the two pieces (top and pedestal) to your vehicle and bring any bubble wrap or padding for protection as I have back trouble and am not able to assist with any carrying/lifting, carts, or transport. Table is not very heavy, just unwieldy. Cash preferred; credit card via Square or Paypal accepted with a 3% additional processing fee (as assessed by those companies). Price is firm. Please contact me ahead of time with any questions.
