The U.S. furniture market, including high end replica furniture like ghost dining chairs, Eames loungers, and tolix stools, reports a revenue of approximately $63 billion. Though sales of home furnishings slowed after the housing market crash of 2008 and the subsequent Great Recession, furniture sales rebounded in 2012, and have only continued to grow.
Eames chairs were quite popular during the mid 20th century. At the moment, they are well loved by furniture enthusiasts and hipsters alike. These designer chairs are part of the New York Museum of Modern Art permanent collection, and for good reason. Besides being a purely functional object, replica furniture is just as much an art form as sculpture or painting.
The Eames Lounge Chair and matching ottoman are fashioned from molded plywood and leather. They were designed by Charles and Ray Eames for the Herman Miller furniture company as a special project. The attention to detail and brilliant sleek design of these chairs are on par with the astounding dexterity and virtuosity associated with Renaissance era stained glass windows. Eames chairs are to modern craftsmanship as frescoes are to 16th century Italy.
The original Eames chair price is cost prohibitive for the majority of people. However, Eames replica furniture is priced significantly lower than the original model. There are many examples of replica furniture created in the style of Eames designer table and chairs. There is also replica furniture resembling the beloved Noguchi coffee table, another mid century favorite. This table is comprised of two identical curved wood pieces extending from a wood base. A heavy plate glass piece serves as the tabletop. It is nearly impossible to detect that this replica furniture is anything other than authentic for anyone who is not an expert in such things.
Purchasing replica furniture allows buyers to have their cake and eat it too. Replica furniture offers you, the buyer, a lifetime of aesthetic enjoyment without burning a designer chair sized hole in your wallet. Your replica furniture will facilitate years of comfort, joy, and creative appreciation in your home.
