I couldn't be more in love with this style of table. One of the best designed and most popular tables on the market, the Saarinen table is a gorgeous looking piece of furniture that was designed back in 1956. As any good design should, it has stood the test of time. The Saarinen table has been used repeatedly in design magazines and even has it's own budget version at Ikea (DOCKSTA $179). It's simplistic design enables it to compliment a variety of styles and goes with just about any chair. Perfect for those like me who enjoy mixing their pieces. The price tag is not so desirable however, starting at $1300 for an end table and going up to over $5000 for an oval dining table. Yikes! BUT if it's lasted 50+ years, then you know it will be a good investment. In the meantime, drooling is definitely in order.
