The fact that you have to ask makes me very happy. It's a replica, but a darn good one. I just cant justify spending $7,000 on a chair.

So I did a LOT of research, read a bunch of reviews, etc. Literally I've been shopping seriously for one for probably 5 years but every time I'd get close I'd chicken out for one reason or another. Either it would be some $500 knock off and I'd do the whole "You'll be immediately pissed for buying a cheap POS" thing. I met a woman at a party last summer who works for a company that outfits Amazon's offices with furniture and she claimed she could get me one for $4k. I was SUPER close to pulling the trigger on a real one but even at the steep discount I just couldn't justify it. Especially knowing that my dogs would jump up on it, it will get scratched and bumped and dinged.

So I ended up rolling the dice on the nicest replica I could find. I paid for the upgraded aniline leather and prayed I wasnt getting ripped off with some shitty bonded leather BS. I'm happy to report it's 100% aniline leather. On the back of the arm rests where the leather is folded over and attached you can see the thickness and that it's died black as oppose to painted black. it also came out of the box smelling like leather. So yeah, super happy with the purchase and the price. With a coupon on Amazon it was $1300 with shipping included.

I got schooled on the Eames chairs a few years back. A buddy of mine has one that is an original (circa 1950-something) and a another that is a reproduction. Both the same color and to my untrained eye, I didn't know the difference between them. I learned (was basically yelled at for sitting in a chair) quickly which chair was acceptable to sit in and which one was not.

I've got an original '59 lounge chair in Rosewood.

I bought it for cheap, many years ago, before the internet exploded on mid-century.

Previous owner had used bolts thru the side panel when the glued mounts failed (common failure). I had Herman Miller install new mounts, and then the St. Louis office sent the repaired shell to a local woodworker who made "matching" plugs...it's not perfect, but it is nice.

The original black leather upholstery is a little worse for wear around the edges...but...the thickness/quality is os much higher than the late production pieces.

Sadly, I've never even had it set-up in the house...just too many pieces, quite a few stored away in my "garage", including (2) Womb chairs, a bunch of Wakefield Aristocraft sofa pieces, and an Eames AL group sofa.

One of my latest first-world annoyances is using the OEM container my collegen comes in. The lid is both insecure, yet not the easiest to open... especially before my morning coffee! I've kind of had my eye out for another container to make grabbing a quick scoop easy.

Today I stumbled upon these nice Le Creuset stoneware canisters of varying sizes. Not only does the wood lid seem easier to use, but the appearance is worlds better than the plastic OEM canister stirring on my countertop. I picked the color that somewhat-kinda matches the brand of collagen I use.

My other reason for picking one of these up is I might give one (or two small ones) of these to my sister for her upcoming birthday. I thought I'd try one for my self first.

I've used Vital Proteins Collagen for a long time now. Always mixed it with my shakes as I use unflavored protein. My wife mixes it in with her coffee.

Also if not using it, I strongly advise supplementing with N-acetyl cysteine (NAC). It converts to glutathione more efficiently in your body...moreso than taking straight glutathione which has poor absorption.

Very good supplement for keeping the respiratory system healthy. Plus glutathione is one of if not the most important antioxidants you can take.

Fiancee got me some new shoes. Been talking about a pair for probably a year now, but I'd never spend that kind of money on myself.

Nice! Zebras are a classic.

Last year I bought myself a pair of red/white kyle walker pros. Loved them so much I wore them almost daily. Unfortunately they started looking old so I painted them black to revive them a little. Bought the last pair I could find online after being discontinued. Early birthday present to me lol

Very nice, and I'm envious of the color. I have a 2017 model of the same truck, but the cement color was only available on the Pro models that year.

It has a little over 32k miles now and has been great. I love having such a versatile vehicle.

I've been casually trolling for another pair of eyeglasses for a while now. These popped up and they could work. Honestly, I'm concerned about the gold, but I'll easily return them if I decide I don't like them. If they do work I'll have my prescription put in them when possible.

Nice! Priced well to boot. I've been eyeing a pair of Persols on Amazon that I just haven't pulled the trigger on yet.

Use to have a huge regular hot tube that came with the house. That thing was a huge pita. Use to be in my enclosed patio taking up most of the space. After several years moved it outside to this area. Still the stupid thing would leak like crazy and was always broken. Had not used it in probably 3+ years. Finally decided to get rid of the stupid thing.

Picked up this inflatable one on amazon, its awesome! Just big enough for me and the gf. Easy to setup and maintain and when we leave for a while can just deflate it and put it away in case of hurricanes or what not. Plus if/when it breaks it's cheap enough I can just buy another one.
