Last weeks Captains Mirror ‘Splurge Vs Save’ was well read. So here we are for week 2 in my new blog series ‘Splurge Vs Save’, showing you how you can have a stylish home for less. This week, the famous Eames rocking chair.
Eames Rocking Chair Splurge
The original Eames RAR rocking chair is somewhat iconic and dates back to the 1950’s. I’m sure you’ll agree this is a stunning timeless piece of furniture and one which I could only dream of owning, as it comes in at a whopping £435 at John Lewis….eep!
Eames Rocking Chair Save
So, when I scoured the internet looking for something similar, I was delighted to find the market was awash with Eames style rocking chairs. Naturally replica furniture will always be dramatically cheaper in price, but it truly is a great way to own a statement piece of furniture.
We purchased our Eames style rocking chair from MDM furniture for £44.99 and it is a fabulous addition to Munch’s bedroom. Saving ourselves £390 on the original Eames Rar rocking chair.
There are a variety of colours out there to choose from, but I think white adds to the timeless attributes of this piece of furniture. We styled ours up with fun cushions and it was great for the bedtime feed too.
