The Pedestal Collection by Eero Saarinen was released by Knoll in 1957.

I was surveying the new 2013 IKEA catalog and noticed the IKEA PS 2012, a bamboo top table listed for the dining room. But everything about it says it would be perfectly fine being moved from the dining room and into a workspace as a desk instead. Who says you need to abide by labels? A table is a table, and a dining table can be a desk...add a task lamp, office chair, laptop, and other desk organizing pieces, and nobody it was supposed to be a dining table. And the bonus: you could give yourself an excuse for eating at your desk!

Imagine your guests' surprise (aside from your choice in music) once they realize the music is emanating from the...table itself!
Looking through Jessica & Jonathan's house tour, it was love at first sight. Everything about this living room works. From the line of industrial bar stools tucked under the counter to that interesting mix of modern shaped chairs with a natural coffee table, this space has character. We may not all be able to live in a space like this, but we can latch on to some of the style by shopping for similar furniture…
