The classic round table is back in the spotlight in the dining room.

The classic round table is back in the spotlight in the dining room.

In particular, Eero Saarinen's 'Tulip' is gaining popularity thanks to its simple silhouette that fits in with any style.

Round tables are a classic that is making a comeback as a trend in the dining rooms of today's homes in different materials and styles. They are versatile, comfortable, take up less space than a rectangular table and seat more diners. But among them all, we have chosen the classic Tulip, designed by Saarinen. We propose eight styles in which we are convinced that it fits perfectly.

  1. Contemporary

The version of the Tulip table with the white base and oval top in marble, a material that has made a strong comeback, fits in contemporary dining rooms like this one, where light wood in a natural color and simple lines give it a Nordic accent. In addition, designs in natural wood, such as the Wishbone chair: a design by Hans J. Wegner for Carl Hansen & Søn, also from the 1950s, have become, along with the Tulip table, icons that fit perfectly in contemporary decorations.

  1. Modern

Here, the Tulip table fits perfectly in a modern interior, with simple, clean lines and full of strength and modernity.

  1. Classic

In classic interiors, it is a piece that can add an exciting contemporary touch. Any of its versions is ideal for these environments, but this one with a white base and smoked glass top fits perfectly in this space.

  1. Renewed classic

In a contemporary environment for which we are looking for a classic touch, the key is to get the combination of materials right. Here, the Tulip with its walnut wood base adds a classic touch. If we play with upholstered chairs, in addition to furniture and textiles in neutral tones, we will get the table to fit well in this type of decoration.

  1. Retro

In this case, the marble countertop adds a retro accent to this contemporary space. It is accompanied by Tulip chairs and the spectacular Link ceiling lamp by Luzifer.

  1. Industrial

The classic model with foot and the white laminate top is the most versatile. The industrial touch, in this case, is given by the white walls, the worn leather chairs with white stitching, and the black and slate signage. Mix it with pieces of noble materials, recycled and without stridency in environments where white, black, and wood predominate.

  1. Eclectic, with a feminine touch

This environment exudes a feminine touch thanks to the Thonet 18 chairs, with curved lines and wood, the sun mirror, and the feminine details in the decorative accessories, such as flowers and photo frames.

  1. Eclectic, with a masculine twist

The mix of styles and periods is the key to this office. The Tulip table has been combined with two other chairs: the Cesca, by Marcel Breuer for Knoll, with a steel structure, and the Prague 811, with a back and seat made of natural mesh. Both are designs from the 1920s and fit very well in an environment with a rustic look, but with modern appliances and the ethnic touch of the rug.
