Determine the size you need
You must consider your height when shopping for dupes. The original Eames chair came in two sizes: standard and tall. Most people choose the standard size, as it was designed for people 5’2 to 5’10. However, considering today’s preference for bigger, roomier chairs, you might wanna give the tall size a go. Of course, not all dupes offer a standard or tall size, so always take a look at the dimensions and specs before buying.
Focus on the material
What the chair is made of is the number one thing you should be looking at if you want to make sure it’s durable. And, I’m sorry, but if I’m spending hella coins on this chair, I don’t want it to fall apart after a few months of use. The only way to guarantee its durability is by double-checking what it’s made of. Your best bet is high-quality leather or faux leather, such as polyurethane or vinyl (PVC).
Consider your lifestyle
The hardest part of buying a good Eames chair dupe? Finding a replica that’s affordable but also hella long-lasting. How much $$ you should drop on a chair kinda depends on your lifestyle. Like, how often will you be using your chair? If you’re the type to lay around on your living room furniture all day (lol, me), then chances are you’ll be using your chair pretty frequently, so you’ll want to invest in something that’ll last. If you expect your chair to basically become an accessory that collects dust, then you can probs get away with a cheaper option. Simply consider how much chillin’ and relaxin’ you do in your living room before buying.
