dining with a docksta

April 26, 2010

So I have been totally debating whether or not I need this table in my life. Sure it's "an interpretation" of one of the most recognized tables in history, but at $149 can you really justify not having some Saarinen worship in your home?

With that being said, I asked some advice from my dining expert Eddie at work, and he told me the structural integrity of a table that comes in parts is only sound as the person who spends the time to construct it. In other words, no wobble worries if you do it right! I think the Docksta would be a great starter table. Let's see how people make this simple little "nod to greatness" look adorable.

 I love the idea of some fresh pillows in the dining chairs. You can change them out seasonally.
A chic lighting fixture would give the table some sparkle too.

 Ha! There goes that Stockholm Rand (which I am still loving by the way). 
The chair legs blend in so well with the rug, that you can't help but notice the table base.

Black and white are so adorable when done right. Nothing provides more contrast.
Together with the flooring, I'd love to be invited over for dinner.

I am absolutely IN LOVE with these chairs. They look like a sweet love child between the Brno and Cesca chairs. Steel tubing and wicker go wonderfully with white. Love the one pillow too. A++.

These chairs look great with the Docksta as well. If I could find some vintage drool-worthy dining chairs, I'd cover the seat to make them pop under the table, then set the table, give it a centerpiece, and find a cool buffet (the Torsby and Abstrakt red are used here). I can't wait to dress up our future dining area (in an apartment, I'm sure it'll be more of an area than a room - but it still makes me smile.)

    1. Hi Dandan, I didn't end up purchasing it, but know people who have it or work with it and swear by the quality. No wobbles! Thanks for stopping by!
