We all know that a copy is never as good as an original, and generally speaking the thought of an Eames Lounge knockoff is about enough to get me into a rant, but I'm prepared to make an exception. Over the holiday weekend (yay turkey!) I spotted this little guy at a friends house. It's just different enough from the Eames Lounge to make me like it, and I LOVE the bent plywood detail on the base. The love affair was sealed when I could see the darkening of the wood where some loyal owners hand had rested on the sides while spending hours pouring over the local newspaper or a good book.
