I find absolutely no shame in dreaming about the real deal whilst indulging in a replica. I'll rock my faux Chanel fanny-pack like nobody's business. As a lowly freelance writer and small business owner, I don't have that much expendable cash around, but still require that I live in (humble) style.
I'm also a color addict, and have been eyeing the Tolix replicas for quite some time. Until we all win the lottery, or until Design Within Reach is referring to financial reach, I'm proud to present a few of my favorite replicas (with links to the real deals): all bright spots on my wish list.
1. Emeco: Pretty, pretty Navy Replicas from Globe West Products, $289
2. Eames Molded Plastic Chair: Two for one! Retro Classic White Accent Chairs, an Eames replica, $150 for a set of two from Overstock.
3. Tolix Cafe Chair: My personal favorite: Replica Xavier Pauchard Tolix Chair in an array of colors from Matt Blatt, $140.
4. Eames Molded Rocking Chair: Molded plastic rocking chair in the style of Eames, from Lexington Modern on Amazon, $94.
