DH has wanted one for years and with the replica furniture deadline looming I want to get him one for his birthday. Any recommendations or places to avoid?

What deadline?

nervy a new law was introduced earlier this year to extend copyright protection on furniture design to bring it in line with other areas. The six-month grace period is coming to an end and after the end of October it will be illegal to sell replicas of famous furniture designs - so no more cheap Eames style chairs (or Philippe Starck, or Arne Jacobsen, etc).

Explanation here.

We got a great Eames replica lounge chair and the ottoman from a year or so back. They're a genuinely beautiful design and one that will never go out of style in my eyes smile
