    Anyone know where I can find these chairs at an "attractive" price?

    TIA

    I love them. I actually prefer them to the saarinen tulips with the tulip table. that said, I do prefer the original fiberglass tubs to the new plastic shells but that's strictly a matter of opinion.

    I have a light blue RAR and it's one of my favorite pieces. it's easier to look at than it is to sit in but it's fairly comfortable for short periods at a time.

    I love them, too. I have 4 of them from Modernica with the chrome Eiffel bases, and blue sidechair seats. They're certainly not as cheap as 39 UKP, though, but they were made from the original molds with fiberglass, unlike the rather antiseptic official polypropylene versions made by Herman Miller.

    I have one for my desk and it's great. for a simple chair, it's very comfortable over long periods of time.



    I would be suspicious if the 39 UKP is the real Herman-Miller piece or just a replica.

    Its certainly a replica... the quality is fantastic though for the price. Trouble is at the moment i'm buying furniture for a whole new house. Just can't justify spending £160 for something which is, to the intrained eye, the same at £39 version!
