Saarinen Tables Across Apartment Therapy

There's a theory, known as reticular activation, which suggests that whenever you're focused on something -- say you're pregnant or going to Africa -- it suddenly appears everywhere. Well, that theory's been set into motion for us by a friend who's considering buying a Saarinen table for her apartment. Suddenly, we're seeing them everywhere. Just for fun, we decided to cast a net across Apartment Therapy and see how many home tours featured this iconic piece... We rounded up these 11 but there may be more. Not only does it come in a number of great variations (we especially like the black version in Brad and Kendra's home from Apartment Therapy Boston) and sizes, but it can handle pretty much any chair, lighting or room style you can throw at it (not literally, of course, or you might crack the marble on those versions). What do you think? Is this table one of your dream pieces or are you tired of it?
