Furniture does more than provide function. Because of its size and the space it takes up it influences the backdrop of your cafe and affects how other furniture and décor will look. This is the reason why it’s important that the furniture you buy for your cafe complements its interior in a flattering way. This isn’t always possible especially when you’ve got a particular style of furniture in mind and can’t find anything to suit. Replica furniture is a great alternative when you’re looking for a style which was once popular but perhaps doesn’t now exist. Let’s take a look at more reasons for buying replica furniture.
An original may be damaged
Tracking down older style furniture which has gone out of fashion can be difficult and time-consuming. Even if you do manage to find what you’re looking for it’s more than likely it will be displaying major signs of wear and tear such as cracks, missing screws, dents, and splinters. If it’s in tip top condition then it’s likely to be priced out of your budget.
Like for like (with a difference!)
Buying a replica piece, however, allows you to acquire a designer piece of furniture for practically the same price as a similar item in a furniture outlet store. What’s more modern day technologies and synthetic materials means that your new piece of furniture will look the same outwardly but be more durable. One example is the classic rattan chair. Typically made from bamboo in its early years of manufacture, it doesn’t stand up to the harsh Australian climate or to constant use. Modern-day alternatives are manufactured from nylon resins which boast the aesthetics of a wicker rattan chair but the difference being they are weather resistant, durable, and easily wiped clean with little more than a damp cloth.
Easy to source
You could spend years searching for a designer item of furniture but now it’s practically as easy as typing in a Google search and seeing what results come up. Replica furniture is big business and companies all over Australia are manufacturing replica chairs, sofas, lights, dressers, and goodness knows what else to satisfy our thirst for classic style and aesthetics.
If you love designer classics and have had your eye on a particular item but are hesitant to buy because of the expensive price tag, then replica furniture could be the solution. It’s practically always cheaper than the original and just because it’s cheap doesn’t mean it’s inferior in any way. In fact, because of modern-day technologies, it’s likely to be more durable than the original – making for a win-win solution.
If you’re a fan of Tolix chairs you’re probably aware that they’re still manufactured today but were you to purchase one, then it’s likely to make a considerable dent in your wallet. And, were you to need say 30 to furnish your cafe, well you might need to take out a small mortgage!
