We've long been fans of Hans Wegner's Wishbone chairs. A classic, they are one of the pieces that is warm and a bit rustic, yet still reads as modern. But, as you may already be aware of, they are NOT inexpensive. We saw a similarly styled chair today for less than half the price of even the least expensive Wegner...jump below for info:

Pottery Barn's Emerson Chair is $289 for the armchair and $249 for the side chair, while the Wegner starts at $599 (for black) and ranges to $835 (for Oak). The Pottery Barn chairs are made from Mahogany and rattan in a "Sandrift Gray" finish and the Wegner at Room and Board is made from Oak with papercord.

What do you think? A reasonable substitute for a similar look on a budget or too far off the mark?
