What's some effay furniture, everybody seems to have replicas of these
Get on that breuer,
or sum Rohe.
It's a bit of a time consuming hobby but you can outswift dealers quite easily and get some period replicas for absolute peanuts. I myself just got an original knoll for the cost of 30km in gas. That's the good shit.
i picked up the hobby of restoring the real ones of these a few years ago. my living space has a shit load of the original furniture most people seem to overlook heh
with that said i have 6 of the fiberglass originals, in black and white
the mounts a weak and the fake legs don't last quite as long
the only replica's i could even begin to suggest are the modernica ones
but i wouldn't even do that tbh
the licensed ones by HM are eh nowadays PTFE i would also stay away from the baltic birch veneer ones
these are super cool, but only fools would pay for an original
look for cheapo knock-offs, they still look sharp
>but only fools would pay for an original
this is what poor stupid people say...
originals are getting hard to find and are a chore to restore
going out to ikea and finding something vaguely modern-ish is about as plebian as dressing up in black H&M women's clothing
i rarely see older vitra this side of the ocean, unless it's clearly from DWR in LA. but you can tell it's not original HM just by looking at it even before you flip it over and look for the stamp.
modernica is fairly new to the scene since they strictly do reproductions since HM moved to plastic and veneer only
which is why they're famous
but they're good for repops, i use their bases on occasion even though they don't have the right zinc process
but chrome looks better for new fags
What about reproduction bases (other than modernica) ? On the odd chance you find a HM/Vitra fiberglass shell it's almost always paired with a plain black steel frame.
I've seen a fair few on .com around the 100/200 usd mark, but what are they generally like. Better than getting old ones galvanized?
At least Modernica Eiffel bases are still skinny, modern HM & Vitra look way too wide.
Modernica is one of the very few replica's I can bear, they at least strive to make something that's adhering way more to the original design then HM & Vitra.
Price is high though, you can get vintage HM for the same bucks.
>mfw my grandma had cheap replicas in these in her house her entire life
>never knew they were eames replicas
>im sure she didn't either
they're old as fuck and she always kept them even though they looked out of place
i always liked sitting in them
Does anyone know what this chair is called, and possibly w2c?
