I've been thinking of buying one of these for as long as I can remember and have priced up shipping a Herman Miller original from the states and the European Vitra version. Either of which would be around £4k.
Having just bought a new house, I've got the itch again, but some of the reproductions like the Milan Direct version are so accurate, is it worth taking a punt on one and saving a few grand?
I know they're not 100%, and it would probably bug me that it wasn't the real deal, but has anyone who has any knowledge of these chairs seen one up close? How good are they? Any other recommendations?
