Look! IKEA's Nod to Jens Risom with Poang Chair

I have to admit that I jumped aboard the IKEA Poang train this weekend. This line has some of the most functional and comfortable chairs around and for the price, you can't beat them. While picking up my new...

Poang chaise this weekend, I was surprised to see a woven chair much like the classic Jens Risom Knoll! This mid-century look is picking backing up big time. Vintage Knoll chairs (in great condition) are quite expensive while this IKEA version is a bargain at only $99!!

What do you think? Is this a good Jens Risom substitute for people with mid-century style on a budget?
