Saarinen Crush

I really really want a Saarinen table (LOVE LOVE LOVE), but at $1,676.00, it’s not in the budget for now. Boo-hoo.

I’ve settled on the DOCKSTA dining table – a low-budget version  from Ikea.  I recently found the table on Craiglists for $80. It retails for $180, so I’m happy I saved some money there.

I’m happy with DOCKSTA table for now and it’s been fun looking for chairs to pair with it. I’ve discovered pretty much anything will work.


Here are some examples of chairs paired with either the Docksta or Saarinen table .  Total awesomeness.

I could go on and on. There’s no shortage of images with the tulip pedestal table and  a variety of chairs that work for it.

Check back soon. I found some chairs on Craigslist circa 1970’s that I plan on reupholstering. Really excited about finding some fun fabric for them!
