So I am very close to taking the plunge and buying a Saarinen tulip table for my breakfast room. It is this image that I can't get out of my head.
I love the table especially when it's paired with chairs in a contrasting style, as opposed to the matching tulip chairs. However, my main hesitation stems from the fact that it's a pedestal table and the fact that I have small children. I am worried about it tipping over if, heaven forbid, a little guy climbs onto it or grabs the top. I'd love to hear from anyone who has a Saarinen tulip table as to whether it's sturdy enough to be considered child-friendly. Thanks.
In the meantime, here are some more tulip tables I find inspiring:
