I love this table and I personally have this at home. It is inspired by the iconic Saarinen tulip table, but at a fraction of the price. It sells for $179, whereas the original starts at around $600. It by no means is meant to be a knock off, but simply a piece that took it's inspiration from the clean lines of the original. Right now, I have it in our office as a work table, but it could easily be used as a dining table or a side table. Again, it's the versatility that I love. If you get tired of the modern lines, just add a table cloth and/or a glass top and it could easily fit into a more traditional design.
Here is the original Saarinen tulip table and tulip chairs. GORGEOUS!
Here is DOCKSTA in a small eating nook. Equally as gorgeous!
