True. Also when something starts to get too common its looses its appeal somewhat. It starts to blend in to a point where you don´t notice it anymore.
If intellectual property is not to be respected then many of the product innovations we have, whether in the fields of furniture or medicine might otherwise not have been created.Where I might agree that an Eames Chair is overpriced , I also respect that Vitra and Herman Miller have a staff to pay and also need funds to create the Eames Chairs of tomorrow.

Yes some old woods are hard to come by and yes they even often have to have a certificate of authenticity but its the same as the car prices. Why are some classic cars double the price now they were just 5 years ago. Yes they don´t make them any more but they certainly are not any rarer that five years ago. Investors are driving prices.
