One of the things I love about IKEA is being able to purchase mid-century modern design furniture at a reasonable price. Although lately it seems like they are moving away from that, but I digress. I have always loved the look but not the price of an Eero Saarinen Tulip dining table. Fortunately IKEA has the DOCKSTA which has enough of the look and feel of the original to satisfy me.


$1,700+
$179


Unfortunately, IKEA doesn't selling coordinating Tulip chairs but as we can see in the following spottings the DOCKSTA looks good with a variety of chairs.

In the break room on Glee the DOCKSTA is paired with...unknown plastic chairs.


In the break room on NCIS, the DOCKSTA is paired with the TOBIAS chair for a very modern look.

Season 5, episode 8


Also if you are interested in more DOCKSTA ideas Apartment Therapy has had many posts about it.
