    It's 38k, not for the faint of wallet.

    I assume you want to spend less than 38k, maybe narrow it down slightly further.

    Wright auctions are local

    I've heard good things about both Broadway Antique Market and An Orange Moon, both of which are supposed to have a lot of midcentury stuff (but I've never been). Probably not much stuff of that caliber, but you never know until you look.

    Yea, it's not cheap, that's why I asked if there was a less expensive sofa in a similar style to the PK31.

    Hans Wegner CH103 is similar, little over 1/2 the price.

    Thanks. Maybe the price of its repros will be more palatable.

    Right, I'm sure you'll get a fine work of craftsmanship. If you really want a 3 seat sofa from one of the more important danish houses the you may want to consider fabric or buy at auction and re-cover.

    It's just some thing you sit on. How much #craftsmanship does one really need. $17-$38k worth? Nah. I just like the way the PK31 looks.

    SF: where anything less than a $17k couch is < witty sarcasm >a fine piece of craftsmanship</ witty sarcasm >

    You're right, It'll go beautifully with a Rolox watch and a Baroni suit.

    Nah, I'm not a junior banker douche, so I don't wear stupid trinkets or dress like a goober.

    Nice edit BB, see how quickly you reconsidered that knockoff.

    Fwiw I don't think you need to spend $17k on a sofa, I just think a replica is a terrible way to get what you're looking for. Why appreciate the design but immediately discard the value of those creating it? A much more reasonable approach would be to pick a less expensive design.

    Good pt. I am actually thinking about the high backed lounge chair which isn't actually made any more, so that has been part of the influence leading me down the vintage route.
