I really should have taken a picture of my current desk situation but here’s what I’m working with: This desk from West Elm (in white) and this chair from The Container Store (in a poppy red color). I loooove my desk – the open shelves are great for storing my magazines and it’s not too deep that it takes up a ton of room. The chair is a different story… It’s not the most comfortable thing in the world and although I kind of like the bright pop of color, the red is starting to look like an accidental decision or hand-me-down addition to my otherwise neutral room.
SO. What I think I need is the Eames Management chair in ivory/white leather (first image). Isn’t she beautiful? Originally designed in 1958, the chair is a modern and iconic classic – good looking and comfortable, it’s a piece I would have forever. At a cheap $1,849 I may as well buy two, right? I think you see where I’m going with this… Yes, the actual Eames is wayyyy out of my price range – classics are expensive – but classic furniture pieces also get their designs knocked-off so twenty-somethings can afford to buy things that kind of look like the original. So here are the look-alikes I found… All are fall in around the $200+ range which pleases my wallet very much. If I had to get picky, I think I’d take the last option from Advanced Interior Design; it looks the most realistic to me and would only set me back $219. Think I should pull the trigger and get it soon?
