Good news if you want something stylish for the patio, the 1950s Saarinen tables will soon be available for outdoor use.
Previously the iconic tables, first offered for sale as far back as 1956, were strictly for indoor use. But maker Knoll has now added an Acrylic Stone option instead of the usual marble or lacquered finishes, which means it is abel to withstand the elements - or be used indoors when the good weather dies off.
The outdoor collection will include both dining table and coffee table options, although none will come cheap. Prices are expected to start from around £2,500 in the UK.Knoll website
