I'm a girl on a budget. I also like nice stylish things. I have been wanting a Saarinen style accent table for a long time. I finally got a pair of vintage S-style stools on eBay for $99. and turned one of them into a table.
Had I seen this nifty little knockoff from Target, I would have passed on the stools. This table also comes in white, but the black looks better in person. It's about 16 inches in diameter, and 21 inches tall, good for a coffee or end table, or maybe a bedside table.
It's not the best quality material, in fact one of the ones in the store had a dent in the base. The base is metal, and the top is plastic. I love the tone on tone damask "print" on the table top - you get two trends for the price of one! If you look for it in the store, it's in the dorm furniture collection. You can get it online for only $24.95 HERE
I am amazed at the whole dorm furniture category. I went to art school, and New York City was my campus, and a railroad flat in the East Village was my "dorm". I never experienced dorm living until I attended a tango workshop at Stanford University, and they let us old coeds stay in the dorms.
The idea that there are many stores with entire lines of dorm furniture and accessories for parents to buy and send little Johnny and Janey off to college with, cracks me up. Most of my "dorm" furniture came from the street - I went shopping on trash night on the Upper East side, and found some great stuff. And of course, the second hand junk shops always had great deals.
This table is great for any place. I guess they market it for their dorm collection because it's cheap and Mid Century fab!
