    Around here you can walk in to almost any dealer and get 20% of larger items, just by asking, sometimes more, so no.

    well, your conscience clearly has no thought or respect given to the original designers of the chair.

    Stealing from architects = OK

    Some of you have serious reading comprehension problems. You don't need to lie about anything to get the discount.

    In case Brittany needs it spelt out.

    Ask for the architect discount, don't pretend you're an architect.

    if they ask for a business card or (or more officially) an AIA number, then you're out of it. Just work with an architect. There's plenty of them out there.

    Brittany, They should make you commission a house for using them in this fashion. Or at least a shed.

    Forget it, Brittany. For whatever reason, some people just love attacking you. Personally, I enjoy reading your posts and experiences although I can't say I agree with everything you've said. Please don't let them stop you from expressing yourself.

    Here's my experience with my HM eames lounge and ottoman. I bought it, they delivered it first time around without trouble. I sat, enjoyed.

    Sometimes I even reply to this stupid thread while sitting in the chair.
