Another homerun from Overstock. This is a really well fabircated replica of a true mid-century classic -- the famous "Tulip" side table designed by Eero Saarinen for Knoll. It looks and feels like the real thing and for a fraction of the price, I now have a page from the modern design textbook in my home. At the time it was designed, in 1956, the fluted base was quite a revolutionary advancement -- all tables had four legs. A modern masterstroke.
This delicate side table is sturdier than it looks. I bought it because I needed a graceful piece to place in front of the bay window in my living room. It holds a vase of fresh flowers and is flanked on each side by an English ivy. The steel base of this round table is strong and steady, and the marble top is just beautiful. It has a white and gray vein in the marble that looks fabulous with my yellow roses.
I have coveted this table for years, having seen it in the catalog of design (not) within reach. But alas, I refused to shell out the money for the real thing. Why, when you can get this table for a fraction of the cost and NO ONE will know the difference? Even if someone isn't familiar with mid-century designs, they will still admire it for its unique shape and beautiful marble top. I use it constantly in my office/lady lounge, and it is the perfect height and size upon which to place my laptop, a beverage, and candle. It's like a piece of art, and it makes me smile every time I look at it, as all furniture should.
Although the base is bright shiny white, this table is quite similar to the "real thing." I have two of the original tables, a round coffee table and a small end table...the Immer table is larger than the small end table, a good size. Like the original tables, it is heavy enough that tipping isn't a concern. The marbleing is gray, nice but not varied and interesting like my original tables. I would prefer for the base to be less shiny----but all in all, this is a very good product. It fits in with the original two tables and for the price I definitely couldn't be more pleased.

This is a great reproduction, not flimsy at all, very easy to assemble and it looks beautiful. I'm very happy with this, I wasn't sure, but it's great. It doesn't tip, it's very sturdy. The marble is thick and the paint on the metal base is shiny and strong. Great find for an amazing price!

Came well packed, great value. Would buy another. But... There are 3 screws on the bottom that screw the base to the marble. 1 or 2 to them did not line up, and I had to purchase all new screws from Lowz. I want to say they are called M8 thread, but could be wrong. They are in the specialty screw drawers. My fallback plan if I couldn't have located the screws was liquid nails, which would have worked for sure. Overall, it looks great and the marble top is quality.
This was a great price for this stylish table. I've seen them elsewhere for $$$ and up. Other have already mentioned it, but you will need different size screws than the ones they send. Not a big deal to run to the hardware store. Once you get the right size screws, it is very easy to assemble. Sturdy piece and works well with my midcentury decor!
This table doesn't disappoint. Solid marble top with soft gray veining and a steel base make this a quality "reproduction" of the original Eero Saarinen Tulip Table. I love it. Packaging is first rate, too! Have a claw hammer ready to unpack the table top from it's protective wooden crate.
I ordered two and one came with wrong size very specialized screws to attach heavy marble top to plastic :( base. I have been sent a second set of too small screws and if I wanted to drive all over the city to look for them I would have bought tables that way also. The one I have I like but probably wouldn't have paid the price had I seen them in person, They are small but have that style I'm after and fortunately, the sofa and chairs are smallish, too. This is not a great value by any means. But the one I was able to put together does look really cute. I have a silver tufted sofa and the white crystal tufted bench with 2 white silver studded chairs and a silver area rug all from overstock...um maybe not the silver couch, nope, that was another online retailer. Anyway, my room would be complete now if only I didn't have one table upside down in the living room awaiting the correct hardware, AGAIN. Over a month now...hate to return them both but needed two, want them to match, not wasting time trying to locate these weird bolts.
This table is high quality, very easy to assemble, and great looking in a mid-century modern setting. Although the outer shipping box was torn and looked as if it had been partially crushed, the wrapping for the base and the wooden case containing the marble top had protected both from any damage. I am highly satisfied with this beautiful little table!
