Real or Replica?

The Wishbone Chair is a light, sculptural chair - and we love it! It comes in various colours and we have to say various prices too. This chair was originally designed for Carl Hansen and Son in 1949. The real thing costs between $1000 and $2000 depending on finishes including soap, oil, lacquer and paint. I wonder …. is there an element of flattery in being 'copied' worldwide? Does any Designer cop it on the chin and say 'oh well'

Pictured below is the 'cheap and cheerful' option :) 

These look fabulous with your new art work, Persian carpets, bare floor boards and your credit card statement won't set the heart rate fluttering. They cost $295, won't last the distance and are not something to brag about but the bank account is left with funds for a holiday in the tropics.
