Home Decorators has knocked off the Tolix Chair.
They call it the Garden side chair, and are selling it for $99.
What do we think? Cheap substitute for the Marais A chair? The Marais A is crafted of sheet steel, while the Garden chair is brushed aluminum.
The official reproduction, $250, Design Within Reach
Or good option for someone on a budget?
The “garden chair” in a dining room setting.
I thought they looked a little stout next to the “real” chairs, but they are actually the same dimension.
One more view to analyze….
I don’t know if I’m sold. But it sure is tempting to get close to the look and save some serious dough. (6 chairs, $150 less, you do the math.)
I like them better than Crate and Barrel’s option. But at least it seems CB was doing their own interpretation, and not a blatant copy.
Lyle Chair, $199.
