Joni from Cote de Texas said that the X base wood dining room table is one that young people want today. However the four figure price tag is daunting when you are starting out. The X base table looks great in so many decor schemes whether antique influenced as in Belgian or French or Swedish style, or mixing the Trad/Rad style together (modern, traditional, vintage, antique).
Ta da! My favorite knock-off artists of decor trends, or should I say interpreters of our favorite expensive looks, Home Decorators, has some new tables that I think you will love.
First is the X base table HERE
It's very good looking and the price makes it possible to have it now. Granted it is not as grand as the expensive ones. It is solid oak, and styled up right, it could be very good looking.

I love zinc top tables. And the ones I love are again in the four figures. Ouch!
Home decorators has one HERE for 399.!
It does need to get beat up to give it some zinc-y goodness and patina, but again, what a great place holder that would last you for a few years until you are able to upgrade.
Any of these tables could "grow" with you, versatile enough to be used as accent tables, or desks, when they have served their purpose as dining tables, when you are able make the bigger purchase.
And last but not least is this little French beauty, Louis style and distressed.
Again a big look for three figures instead of four from Home Decorators HERE

I love getting the Home Decorator catalog. They always surprise me with something new, and I also love their power-to-the-people prices!
