Okay, so classic Eames lounge chair:
Beauty, no? And here's a variation that I'm also pretty into:
Sorry, bad quality, but you get the gist. So, basically, a fake Eames lounger is on my wish list, unless by some strange miracle I have the opportunity to possess an authentic one for cheap, which I doubt will ever be a reality. So you can imagine my excitement when I found this today whilst trolling Craigslist:
BAM. What's that you say? A really fake Eames inspired lounge chair that has no base? You want that?
As a matter o' fact, I do folks. It's cheapy cheap (asking $60 and clearly I would beat him up a little) and it wouldn't have to stay looking the way it does now. Since I'm not afraid of eBay anymore, I could easily procure a base for it for no more than $30 bucks or so. So get the chair, buy a base, put two and two together, and you still have a knock off Eames in not so great condition. HOWEVER, due to the cheapy cheapness of it, I would be MUCH more inclined to get a little fabric and reupholster that bad boy myself, like so:
But I just don't know if it's worth it or not. There are many other things on my wish list (new sofa, cowhide rug, modern credenza, paint for the living room, a headboard, art for my gallery wall, a modern desk, a really good vacuum...to name a few) that perhaps I could use more. [Sigh]. What ever is a girl to do?
