In 1956, Eero Saarinen addressed the “ugly, confusing, unrestful world resulting from the slum of legs underneath typical chairs and tables” with his iconic Tulip table: a clean pedestal trumpeting up from the ground to gracefully meet its top. If you’d like one leg instead of four, here are some options for you.
- Armony Table
A stand-out in chrome or lacquer at a great price, available in clear or screen-printed glass, or a lacquered wood top. Sized at 24 – 48” diameters, and in two heights, this table works great in many environments. From $492
- Atatlas Table by Marcello Ziliani
Similar to the form of the Greek Titan who was sentenced to hold the Earth on his shoulders, Atatlas' base is constructed at an angle. Atatlas's strong fiberglass frame comes in glossy black or white with glass or laminate tops. The Atatlas table is available in a round or oval shape. From $2990
