I realize this post is a bit old, so maybe by now you've already resolved the situation .. but thought I'd bump this up, just in case not.

I'm not at all sure I know what a mushroom chair is.. lol! but..
You might possibly consider the ollld bedroom dorm/idea of flat piece of wood plus, under each of the short sides, enough bricks/concrete blocks or some other easily-stackable things to make the top whatever height you need it to be.
You can try places like thrift shops/flea markets/'junque' shops/etc  for the makings.

For example, for the top, you could use jus about anything flat and either square or rectangular ---  say for example, an old salvaged door or a fairly-inexpensive unfinished wood door.

For the supports underneath each end, you can buy or salvage nearly anything that's readily stackable and not liable to tip over or slide apart easily, such as those open concrete blocks, or used bricks, & so on.

Or, perhaps some sort of stackable wooden crates(try lumber yards, for example; might be something salvageable there) --
or those sturdy, thick but lightweight plastic crates used to transport/deliver/carry sodas (some grocery stores & convenience stores just give them away for the asking).
Or, maybe several collapsible/foldable type plastic cartons -- found in  places like Walmart, dollar stores, Big Lots/Odd Lots, DIY home improvement stores, etc (shop around for good prices but do be sure they aren't too flimsy). 
You can 'weight' them to keep them from sliding, if necessary,  by stacking them on their sides & using them as bookshelves or for storing other heavy-ish, nonbreakable items.
