Isn't it wonderful when two come together and just click? We're not talking Valentines here, but furniture. Saarinen's Tulip Table and banquette seating, specifically. Just look how happy these two are together:

I have a small tulip table in my dining area and I've always been at a loss for the chairs around it (without spending a fortune, at least!). A banquette just might be the answer, as it grounds this visually light piece. The thought of this possible solution has this particular thrifty decorator swooning.

What about you - do you love this dynamic duo?
