Q: I have fallen in love with the Saarinen Executive side chair, but not with the $800 apiece price tag. (I need four for my dining area, and $3200 is more than I can justify spending in one shot). I found a knockoff by modloft for under $200 apiece. Unfortunately, they are veneer and microsuede (uncanny resemblance though!) I'm hoping to find something a bit in between the two in terms of quality and price...

Something along the lines of Alphaville's knockoff of the Saarinen organic chair, which I'm seeing for as little as $325. Any ideas?

Please share your suggestions and sources with Katherine in the comments below....thanks!
