The Eames lounge chair is the ultimate quirky and unique furniture item, which can come in a wide range of styles and colors to suit any decor.
It can be extremely tempting to go for the cheapest copy of the design. At first glance, cheaper designs appear to look exactly the same as the original collection. Reproduction of the Eames management chair conforms to the body's shape and gives it a wide seat for leisurely sitting.
However, cheaper creations are created with cheaper substances and in terms of quality; these designs are no match to the original and higher priced designs. It can be hard to know where to begin when you come to select and purchase a reproduced piece of furniture.
Here are a few tips to bear in mind before purchasing your Eames lounge chair….
Make sure you know who you are buying from: When buying reproduction furniture, particularly pieces that are as popular and stylish as the Eames collection, you’re going to want it to last. Although many furniture suppliers will offer many years of warranty, this is no use if they’re likely to shut down or re-launch under a different name.
Find out where the furniture is manufactured: –China is generally the most common place for furniture manufacture, simply because furniture suppliers can get cheaper labor costs, which should then allow their products to be sold at affordable prices.
Providing that high quality, imported materials are used; there is nothing wrong with buying furniture that is made in China. The most popular material for the Eames lounge chair is leather. High-quality designs should be created with genuine Italian leather.
You will find that the cheap and cheerful designs are created with Chinese leather, Leatherette or Leather match. These are thinner materials which generally don’t last very long or look as good.
Don't always trust a picture: – To ensure you are purchasing a good quality design, it’s advisable to go and see the chair in the flesh.
Although online shopping is becoming increasingly popular and generally reliable, when it comes to furniture a picture will not enable you to see the exact size of the chair or discover the type of materials used.
