Congrats on your chair. I'm loving mine! Writing this message from it now.
Love to see some pics and initial impressions once you have it unboxed.
The website actually indicates a different measure for same chair (Dimensions(cm): 82(L)*87.5(W)*83.5(H)), so I'm not sure how useful the comparisons are.
Bottom line is that the chair appears to be a near exact replica of the current HM version. if both chairs were side by side in a dark room, and you sat in both, you would not be able to tell which one you were sitting in. They are exactly the same feel. Turn the lights on and you will still not be able to tell which is which without looking under the seat shell for the HM logo.
Glad we can find something we agree on :) We recently purchased and remodeled a 1961 MCM home. The original design of the living areas was pretty chopped up and compartmentalized around the central area. We dropped several walls and installed beams in the attic to support a more open plan. We also vaulted half the ceiling over the kitchen area. FWIW, here's a few before/after pics of the space...
As a larger human (6'4", 190) I actually prefer the over-size nature and titling mechanism of the Plycraft knockoffs to the Eames themselves.
I can do through the trouble of buying a vintage plycraft and reupholster it etc but it would cost about $2,000 to do that locally.
Are there any companies selling plycraft knockoffs? (Knockoffs of knockoffs haha)
