design knock-off”s

I really do. But i will never pay the kind of prices asked for real Eames pieces. Not unless i win a lottery or something. So i’m always excited to find cheaper knock-off’s (did i spell that right?). Ikea is a great place to find pieces inspired by (or copied from) iconic design pieces from mid-twentieth century. A lot of Eames and Aalto.

Just the other day i found a cute little coat rack at a really cheap store (Action), for about €3,50. And i only just discovered it’s a simplified version of the classic Eames coat rack you see below. It makes me smile every time i see it.

Now if only i could find cheaper versions of these chairs that i’m swooning over…
