I had an interest chat with an official restorer from a licensed manufacturer last week. He had an original there and one of their newest models. The original looked great and even though the new "original" looks great it just paled in comparison to the earlier product. He mentioned that of the original woods used its protected and virtually impossible to get some or at least manufacture with it unless the manufacturer can prove they wood had been felled before a specific...
Amen brother, I hear you.....thats why I stopped taking Kylie Minogue to swinger parties.
Sell it on and buy what you want. It doesn´t sound like a compromise that you are happy with, so don´t screw with the table to the next owners chagrin.
You can´t stand on no legs which is what your argument for the Rove fake has been trying to do. You have to ask about your motives for buying this particular fake in the first place and I think the queen of style had something to say on this.
That will be interesting. I either love or despise Newsons stuff, it always seems to be a hit or miss for me. I loved the cooking range he did for Smeg.

Very true but to say you don´t care about their motives doesn´t mean that any company may behave as they like.

If we all take the attitude that its just the was of the world and nobody takes a stand then nothing will ever change for the better. The problem with the world today is that money is for many the only motivational factor and passion for something has been forgotten.
You´ll find many suppliers for Rinaldi´s Sapien shelves on the net. I suppose the main thing that distinguishes the original is the solid base and the solid one piece narrow spine when looked at side on. Many reproductions try using cheap folded metal for slotting the shelves into.(probably to save on cost while still offering stability). Considering the cost of the originals relatively speaking not much more than the replicas just make sure it is an original and you...
