the real deal.

we recently were browsing through the wright auctions website, looking through the catalog of an upcoming auction of scandinavian design, and spotted this:


126
Kerstin Horlin-Holmquist
Eva chair
Nordiska Kompaniets Verkstader Nykoping
Sweden, 1958
beech, upholstery
29 w x 33 d x 38.5 h inches
Estimate: $3,000–5,000

um, looks rather familiar, right? (and also looks radically different in a plain linen, i might add).

now that we've seen the real deal with an auction estimate of 3-5K, i wonder if anyone's opinion of the anthro rip-off homage has changed?

also, be sure to sign up for email updates for my tumblr blog and be entered to win a free copy of Metropolitan Home Design 100: The Last Word on Modern Interiors by michael lassell. totes free, and heck, what's one more lil email every day?
