Vitra Eames lounge chair and replica comparison

Posted on 5th April 2023 by Mark

Today I had an idea for a short video. This week I'd been asked the same question 3 or 4 times. The question being, "how long will the chair last?" It then occurred to me that my favourite chair for reading and watching the box is my Iconic Interiors 7 year old Eames Lounger covered in old chestnut leather.

I love this chair. Seriously. It has everything: stunning looks and extreme comfort. I thought, I know a great idea for a video. Why don't I compare my investment 2001 Vitra Eames lounge chair with my 7 year old (2011) Iconic Interior's lounge chair? Afterall, this is exactly what my customers want. They want the next best thing to the licensed piece. So what's better than doing a comparison video between the two loungers. Enjoy the video.

(February 2019) Morten Bøgebjerg just left a new 5-star Trustpilot review of Iconic Interiors Ltd:

The Eames Lounge & Ottoman has arrived, and it's beautiful. I'm a wood worker designing and building custom musical instruments, so I have attention to detail. After inspecting the chair I can honestly say, that the quality of the leather, the veneers, the finish of the metal parts, the assembly is all amazing and very high quality. As you say in one of your videos: You will not be disappointed, and I can tell you, that we're very happy that we choose to buy from you. Thank you Mark. More reviews on our Trustpilot Review Page.
