Charles and Ray Eames were an amazing design duo and I’d give my right arm to spend a week with them in their studio.  The Eiffel Tower Chair is just one of their many iconic designs - it literally looks good in any setting.  This chair has been cool since 1948, it’s a classic so you really can’t go wrong with this purchase.
We can’t all afford the original and most of us can’t get the Herman Miller reproduction either.  I did a little hunting and found a replica for under $50 bucks!

Steel Wire Based Molded Side Chair, $43.96

Buy the Herman Miller Reproduction at Hive Modern for $249.00 – This one is an exact replica and is made from eco-friendly materials.
