Classic furniture never goes out of date; it is like a piece of art, which can bring a room to life. High quality classic furniture is desired by many but the designs that were once easily accessible are now financially out of the reach for the majority of us.
Thankfully companies such as VOGA are dedicated to making classic designed furniture of exceptional quality at affordable prices.
Interior designers are constantly using beautiful furniture from designers such as Charles Eames. As more of us covet these pieces, no longer are they dream of “when I win the lottery” but a reality with the stunning reproductions now on the market. These pieces are not cheap knock offs but instead have been thoughtfully created from the finest Italian leather, the softest cashmere wool to the sleekest steel and oak.
We count down our top 6 reproduction replica furniture that look identical to the originals.
Instantly recognizable, the Eames Lounge 670 Chair is a true design icon that is reminiscent of an old English Club chair. Luxurious and sophisticated, the chair's intelligent design sets new standards for the traditional club chair. It is lighter with more elegance and comfort. The chair is angled for relaxation, with cleverly positioned cushions to offer support where needed. Its classic yet modern frame is carefully crafted from high quality wood and upholstered in soft Italian leather. The five-point base is made from cast aluminium for lightness and stability. A choice of seven colours - black, white, cream, dark brown, brown, camel and sand - make it easy to find the right look for your home.
This timeless classic is possibly one of the best-known lights ever. Immortalised on the silver screen in blockbusters such as Diamonds Are Forever and The Italian Job, the design is still as popular today as it was 50 years ago. From its marble base to the polished aluminium shade, every detail of the Castiglioni Arco style lamp has been carefully reproduced by hand. The 2½-meter reach of the arch cleverly provides overhead lighting without requiring ceiling suspension. It is fully adjustable and has a swivelling shade for precise lighting control.
The iconic Charles Eames RAR Rocking Chair is the perfect fusion of traditional and modern, with its glossy plastic and fibreglass shell and wooden curved rockers. This finest quality reproduction is as stylish and beautiful as the original. The curved seat is moulded from fine quality fibreglass and plastic and comes in a choice of colours to suit every home. The Eiffel tower inspired legs are a unique feature of Charles Eames' style of design and offer uniform support for the body's weight. The rockers have a smooth motion and are available in oak wood.
The Arne Jacobsen AJ style Floor Lamp is a highly versatile lamp carefully made to the same dimensions as the original. Its cleverly designed funnel shade can be adjusted to channel light exactly where you need it, making it an ideal reading lamp. The cut-out in the base was originally designed to hold an ashtray but in these healthier times, it has become a unique design feature. Made from lightweight aluminium, the lamp is easy to move to any location you prefer.
The Mies van der Rohe Barcelona Style Chair is a design classic that has been displayed in luxury homes and hotels around the world. This reproduction Barcelona Style Chair captures all the details that made the original such a timeless design. The seat angle is perfect for relaxing. The padded frame provides comfort and support, while the curved polished steel tubular legs create a beautiful contrast. The original Mies van der Rohe Barcelona Chair was made with pig skin, but you'll probably be happy to hear this version is upholstered in top grain aniline leather. This has a natural appearance that improves with age.
The sculptural design of the Poul Henningsen Artichoke pendant lamp has been lovingly replicated with meticulous attention to detail. Each of the 72 aluminium leaves are individually cut, prepared, and mounted to ensure a perfect fit and flawless finish for every lamp. The positioning of the leaves diffuses light to prevent glare and create an atmospheric illumination. The lamp comes in a natural aluminium finish. It is available in four different sizes. Choose from the following different diameters: 45cm, 56cm, 72cm or 100cm, depending on the size of room in which you wish to hang the Poul Henningsen Artichoke Pendant Lamp.
