Splurge vs Steal: Eames molded plastic chairs

15 May

I love  Eames designs, clean and classic and instantly recognizable in anyones home. I am particularly in love with these chairs for the dining room:

but at $399 a pop I can honestly say they wont be making an appearance in my home anytime soon. Sigh.  So what’s a girl to do ? – well you consider a well produced design knock off instead. Check these ones out from Overstock.

They look pretty similar right?  They will give you that Eames vibe but without the designer price tag. These are $179 for a pair. A total bargain!

I wish great design was more affordable as I really do believe in buying originals wherever possible, but, when you are renovating a home on a budget it’s not always feasible.
