unlike David above me, I'm going to let you all in on a little secret: you can get all those womb chairs in the pictures above at emfurn. I myself picked up a teal blue womb chair (last picture, bottom right) from them not too long ago and I'm quite happy with my purchase.

to be honest, I've found that EMFurn makes the best eames lounge chair replicas. Check em out. Thank me later!


Before & After: An Eames Lounge Knockoff, Transformed

I had a good experience buying from a high quality replica maker and I think that tulip table looks really nice in your apartment. :)

Honestly it all depends where you're getting the reproductions from. For example there's tons of low quality knockoffs out there (the poster above me clearly resells low quality furniture). I find that it's better invest a little bit more in high quality reproductions direct from manufacturers such as the company I usually buy furniture from.

I completely redid my living room at Elite Modern Furniture and even referred a few of my buddies to them as well.

Brilliant list. I would also suggest Elite Modern Furniture. I do most of my furniture shopping there. www.elite-modern.com

you could probably buy one and take it home for $500 if you get it direct from the manufacturer or something.

I went ahead and bought a second expresso brown barcelona chair + ottoman for my home office from www.elite-modern.com

I have the original and so far the reproduction is almost as good as the original and did not cost an arm and a leg. Along with the eames lounger a month back plus this chair in my office, I'm a pretty happy camper so far. I'd recommend.

wow the reviews look pretty bad. I don't work there but in their defense, I'd say that out of hundreds of orders they probably fulfill per month, there's bound to be a few bad apples here and there. They should do a much better job thoroughly inspecting the chairs and if it arrives broken then if i'm not mistaken, its the shipper's responsibility as it was damaged during transit.

I got an Eames from Elite Modern Furniture and I'm pretty happy with it. 5 eames replicas for the price of 1 is a pretty good deal.
