Eames lounge chair repro recommendation - Page 2
Doing some research, seems there are some solid companies doing reproductions these days. I'm compiling a few companies right now that i'm very interested in purchasing. I have visited some of their showrooms and they have it side by side with the originals the quality these days for reproductions really amazes me. I found a thread here with someone also very happy with their chair form RoveConcepts, I just came back from their show room and am seeing if there are other ones I can compare
I will be getting my Eames lounge repro from Rove Concepts in a little over a week, hopefully. I will let you guys know what the quality is once I receive it. And if there's a way to post pics, I will do that as well. They said that yes, they have the rubber shock mounts and zippered leather. Supposedly they are upgrading it by having double sided veneer and are changing the tilt a little bit. Also they said they were upgrading the foam padding to make it more comfortable. We'll see. :)
That was such an insightful comment, so glad you shared it with all of us. What's up with all the snobs on this site?? Aren't the OP's searching for info when they start these threads? I was trying to help people because I myself have tried to find more info on eames reproductions and haven't come up with much.
Yes, all their cushions are fully removable, the way their cushion attaches to the veneer is exactly the same as the Herman Miller version. They showed me this in person, and I was able to also see the real thing 5 blocks down the road. Its essentially 3 hooks with a button that clicks in. The seat and ottoman cushions are exact dimensions and are interchangeable as well.
The rubber shock mounts that they use are the same as the Herman Miller, when you sit and settle into the chair you will feel that 1.5 inch flex when leaning back. It is pretty much effortless and makes the chair extremely comfortable.
They have since raised their prices to $1595, I have checked this out in person on the new revisions the inside of the shell is now finished with the matching veneer. They have also intergrated more down/dacron underneath the PU foam which will sit pretty much just like the Herman Miller version, you sink in nice and soft with the cushion reinflating when you get up.
I'm will be paying the $200 to update my current chair, which I am already satisfied with.
Leave you guys off with my sexy chair from Rove Concepts
