Saarinen Tables- my Dad has two reproduction Saarinen side tables in his house. My sister is also an interior decorator.

Depending upon size, you can expect to pay anywhere between 2k and 4k for this table. Or you can own this one for about 200 bucks.
So, a few fun knock offs at a fraction of the price :)
