I’ve always been torn over the authentic designer vs. knock-off debate when it comes to furniture. I’m not going to delve into either side of the issue here. It is a pretty heated topic if you search it out. My current reality however, only affords me the lesser of the two. As in my recent purchase for the low price of $79.
I’ve noticed a few designer style knock-offs recently at London Drugs. Yes, I said London Drugs… Most of them are really, really, really bad and I’m sure the quality is equally nasty. But this faux Louis Ghost Chair surprised me enough that I bought one. (I’m sorry Philippe…one day I will be able to afford you and I will replace my fake with the real deal.) For now, I’m enjoying how visually light and airy my new chair is in my living room. I just won’t put it in direct sunlight!
