Thanks. That all makes sense to me. Fagas straps probably were original. Evans doesn't sell Fagas straps anymore (so maybe they could get rid of that name.) This place does (another fun name):No way are those original.
My guess is that it is hard to source the narrow 45 degree clips and the chair originally had the "fagas" straps with built in retention. Although tacking them to the underside just seems wrong. Sure, it avoids visible holes, but it also leaves them sunken in.
Personally if I didn't know about the clips, I would probably staple to the topside... Leaves tiny holes, easy to do, and can be redone multiple times without concern.
And I'd definitely use the modern straps. I just looked at the pirelli straps on my kofod-larsen chair which I bought restored a few years ago and they are already starting to dry out and crack... Still functional but not a great sign after like 5 years.
We have the Woodrow beds (solid wood) and they are fine - the (DIY) construction is only a bit better than IKEA, but the design and materials certainly are a lot better.My experience with Blu Dot (bought quite a bit) is that the metal based stuff is top notch and durable. Anything involving MDF is actually not very well made. Not much of a step up from Ikea. We've had issues with shelving popping off, coffee tables with leaning feet, etc... We also have a handful of solid wood pieces that are holding up nicely. The metal stuff is their greatest strength for sure.
