Almost since the dawn of designer furniture, there have been cheaper imitations, and so designer chair replicas were born. As offices became a huge part of western culture, expert designers and engineers worked to create the optimum office chair. From iconic designers such as Charles & Ray Eames, to Herman Miller, we've seen basic chair structures develop into highly ergonomic and dynamic machines.

Chairs like the Eames Soft Pad, or Herman Miller Aeron Chair, are world renowned, and are found in offices everywhere. However, an original will set you back financially, which is why our tip is to go for designer chair replicas. If you're shrewd, you can find high quality reproductions that almost match the originals, for a fraction of their cost!

For reception areas, lounges, living rooms, or office breakout areas, designer sofa reproductions could be the key. Two ever-popular examples are the Barcelona Sofa, originally designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich, as well as the classic Le Corbusier inspired model (shown left).

Charles & Ray Eames also deserve an honorary mention in this segment, for their fine Eiffel Tower-inspired dining chair design. Replicas of said dining chairs can be found in a vast number of cafes and restaurants around the globe today.
