Born to world famous architect and Cranbrook Academy of Art Director Eliel Saarinen and textile artist Loja Saarinen, Eero Saarinen was surrounded by design his whole life. By the time he was in his teens, Eero was helping his father design furniture and fixtures for the Cranbrook campus. After studying sculpture in Paris and architecture at Yale, Saarinen returned to Cranbrook in 1934.It was at Cranbrook that Saarinen met Charles Eames. The two young men, both committed to exploring new materials and processes, quickly became great friends and creative collaborators. They worked together on several projects, most notably their groundbreaking collection of molded plywood chairs for 1940 competition Organic Design in Home Furnishings, sponsored by MoMA.At Cranbrook, Saarinen also met Florence Knoll, who at that time was a promising young protégé of Eliel Saarinen. When Florence joined Knoll in the 1940s, she invited Eero to design for the company. Saarinen went on to design many of Knoll's most recognizable pieces, including the Tulip chairs and tables, the Womb chair, and the 70 Series of seating. In addition to these achievements, Saarinen became a leader of the second-generation modernists. Among his outstanding projects are the Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C., the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, and New York's CBS Building and TWA Terminal at Kennedy International Airport.

Whether you're looking to replace your existing dining table or add to your new home, this guide on round vs. rectangular dining room tables will help you find the right shape for the space you have available.
The dining room table is a focal point, where guests or family members get together to enjoy food and good company. And the shape of your dining table can influence not just the way your room looks and feels, but also how you and your guests may interact.
With round dining tables, you create a great dining experience for small groups of people even if space is at a premium. A round table makes the most sense when you've got a square room or areas where space is a concern.
The shape of your room is one that you'll match up with the proportions of your table. Square tables aren't going to necessarily work in a room that's on a weird angle or has very little square foot. And round tables aren't always the best fit for large rectangular rooms.
The most important thing to consider before buying a new dining table is the size of your room and number of guests you will plan to have. Then sit at the table and decide whether this piece can accommodate your needs and if you can easily envision your guests gathering and coming together around it for a wonderful dining experience.
Finally, consider the table's material and design. For example, glass will create a different look to a wooden table. You should also consider the color of the table, the textures, and the materials that are used. It's also helpful to look at dining table decor and how that influences the look of the space.
It's also useful to work out how much space you'll need to leave around your table to avoid guests having to suck themselves in or knocking themselves or the table when they're moving around. As a rule of thumb, a recommendation of 30" -32" inches around the table will allow plenty of room to move the dining chairs and to sit comfortably.
Rectangle tables take up most space, even if within a bigger room. On the other hand, round tables are often used to cater to small spaces but still, if in the wrong place or size, they can feel cramped.
