Inspect the Joint of the Base and the Table Top The original Saarinen table screws down onto a single threaded rod on the top of the base. There should be no visible screws between the top and the base. In order to check, you have to inspect the area of the table where the pedestal base meets the table top.
Your dining table is the centerpiece of all your meals. It should be sturdy, yet fashionable, reflecting your personal taste and unique style. Yet, if youve been using the same dining table for years, maybe its time for an update. Here are the latest contemporary trends to rock the world of dining tables.
Inspect the Table Top and Pedestal Base A genuine Saarinen Dining Table comes with table top and a base, each made with two different materials. The base is made of heavy molded cast aluminum that is covered with a thick protective coating called rilsan. The rilsan comes in white, black or platinum. The table top is beautifully crafted from either of the material -laminate, wood veneer, natural granite, or coated or natural marble in a wide range of colors. If either the table top or the base is made of plastic, then it is definitely not a genuine Saarinen Dining Table.
The quality of furniture is usually reflected in its price. Among the wooden furniture items, the finest products are crafted from oak and other durable timbers. Instead of buying oak dining chairs and a dining table separately, you can save a few pounds by buying a dining set with chairs and table as a pre-packaged set. This often ensures that the styles will match well and the sizes are compatible.
Table Top Made of Arabescato Marble Closely inspect the marble used for the table top. Especially, if the table top is finished with white marble, check for the grey vein pattern on it. This is original Arabescato marble, common choice for a SaarinenDining table. In order to replicate the look, cheaper marbles like Carrara marble is used. Though both the marbles look similar you can easily differentiate them from the grey vein pattern. The grey pattern on the Carrara marble looksfuzzier, since the grains of the marble are of low quality. Hence, you definitely know these are not the genuine ones that you are looking for.
Thus if you search properly then you can get something really classy for your dining space. Cane furniture is also very good for those who love natural things. It might happen that you love natural products like wood but due to smaller space (or money constraints) you are not being able to go for it. In such cases cane furniture can be a great choice.
