The debate for original versus replica furniture has been ongoing for decades, and today is no different. There are those who support original pieces, out of support and appreciation for the work and creativity of designers, and there’s the other group of people who don’t see anything wrong with buying the copy.
I was part of the first ones, and couldn’t imagine ever buying something that was a copy. That is, I had that opinion until I came across a home furnished with plenty of replica pieces. Before replica appeared, the dream of having pieces like the iconic Eames chairs could come true only for a chosen few, but not anymore.
The wide range of replica Eames chair is sure to turn many into fans of replica altogether; I sure would know because I’m now one of the fans. First things first, these pieces are affordable, so for a fraction of the price you can have something as great as the original. Though people have disputed on the quality for years, there’s no need to do so anymore because they are just as good as the original even in the comfort.
What started with one replica piece for me, turned into an interior with plenty of replica Eames chair. Yes, they’re that good! Along with the perfect design as the original, they are made of quality materials nowadays, and you can even find some copy pieces differing in how durable they are based on how much you’re willing to pay for them.
There’s also more attention paid to the construction which is also what makes them true to the original. Choosing replica has become something in common so much so even architects recommend them in case you don’t have the budget but want to get the look. Besides, it wouldn’t take you long to find the right replica. Doing a bit of search online you’d find stores in an instant, so it’s safe to say they are available.
The reason to consider getting one of the replicas in the first place has to do with the fact the originals are classic pieces that still serve as an inspiration to this day, and replicas, the great copies they are, are just as functional as they’re decorative. Moreover, classic means they make a suitable addition to interior décors in a variety of styles.
My Scandinavian hygge influenced home welcomed the Eames and Charles’ Moda dining chairs without stirring up the harmonious feel, quite the opposite, they brought a more vibrant atmosphere. If you still haven’t let in the charms of replica in your home, give it a try – you won’t regret it.
