Imitation Saarinen / Knoll style table

This listing, for multiple peieces of furniture, includes a modern kitchen table styled after the infamous Tulip Table designed by Eero Saarinen for Florence Knoll.  The real thing, in all white (like this one), sells for over $1,000.  This imitation (not identical) by CB2, sells for just $190 new, and is still in production.

So, while this is not a vintage piece, it is undeniably similar to the modern classic and still a very nice style. Given that this is being offered at quite close to the cost of a new one of these from CB2, the seller should definitely be willing to drop the price to at least $100. This would be a great addition to your mid century modern home.
