Only the real thing? Or reproductions okay? Where do you stand


It’s a hotly contested subject in most industries, especially fashion and design.  Is it okay to buy reproductions or “inspired by” pieces?  Or is it a no-no?

There are so many fabulous furniture designers that I love, Jacobsen, Saarinen, Knoll, and Gray.  The problem. Budget.  I’m don’t yet have the savings that allow me to invest in an authentic piece.  Does this mean that my home should go without a piece that I love?

It is undeniable that designer furnishings, like a classic Chesterfield can make a HUGE impact on your space, even if it’s just one piece.

So, what are your thoughts?
If you love a design that isn’t accessible to with your budget, are you fine with having a reproduction?
Do you buy authentic only or go without?
I’m not sure how I feel about it, but I think that until I decide I will try to find beautiful, well designed pieces in consignment and antique shops.
