The (Elusive) Saarinen Tulip Table in Black

Yes, it is everywhere. But I love the Saarinen tulip table. It is beautiful and elegant but also incredibly practical. Not even a Sharpie has marred our white laminate version. But the other day a friend said she was considering the black version (in granite or marble). I was having a hard time visualizing the black tulip table in a real dining room, having only seen it pictured alone.

A web search produced a surprisingly small number of images. What do you think of the black Saarinen table? Is it sleek and modern and funky or too gloomy and masculine?
