Faking it or the Real McCoy

Post autor: Hairsmarket » czw sie 08, 2019 4:37 am

For human hair wigs, When it comes to designer modern furniture it would seem we're divided: there are those that are happy to have the faithful reproduction and those who couldn't bear to have anything but the real deal.

It's certainly a contentious issue and one that's been a constant debate throughout my career as an interiors journalist.

Much like in fashion, there are those who would never dream of carrying a fake Prada handbag and those who are happy to turn a blind eye to the dodgy stitching and double "L" in Milan.

For the record, I stand firmly in the real deal camp. Much like I wouldn't have a copied handbag, it also seems sacrilege to me to have a Louis Ghost chair without the Kartell label.

As such, my home is not filled with designer furniture and in fact the only piece I own is above mentioned Ghost chair.

To the uninformed, it appears to be snobby but for me and lots of others it means much more than that.

If you like lace front wigs. Many people question why having four chairs for the price of one isn't ok and think people who would spend a months salary on a piece of designer furniture need to be carted off in a straight jacket.

I, however, disagree. The Eames lounger has long been the object of my affection. Every time I go to Liberty in London, I pay homage to this beautiful feat of design.

Unfortunately, with it's hefty price tag, this gorgeous chair remains firmly out of reach for now at least.

When we refer cheap human hair wigs, Sure I could bag myself a much more affordable copy and many would wonder why I don't, but for me it just wouldn't be the same. I'd know that I didn't own the real deal. While I'm sure I'd sit perfectly comfortably on it, I'd eye it with suspicion every time our paths crossed.

And with Charles and Ray Eames being the design team I most admire, I feel like I'd been doing them a disservice. It would be like throwing those years of thoughtful design back in their faces as if all the blood, sweat and tears (and prototypes) didn't matter a jot.
