I have one knock-off, of a Noguchi table, that I found for $200, and I have no qualms about that whatsoever. It's a single piece of glass and two pieces of wood, yet DWR and Room & Board sell it for $1400. Unfathomable! (And Mr. Noguchi has been dead for well over 20 years, so I don't feel bad for him missing out on getting his well-earned due.) It's a living room coffee table so it gets plenty of love and hard use every day (drinks spilled, feet up on it, vacuum cleaners running into it) and none of that worries me a bit. I actually wouldn't want the real thing; I'd be awfully grim if I found the tiniest scratch in the $1400 version.
Should I Be Ashamed of My Furniture Knockoffs?

I think all new parents need to try out potential names with an important title like "President" or "Supreme Court Justice..." in front of it.
