A curious element in 20th century design is the phenomenon of imitation and evolution.

A designer will release a product to the marketplace and within time another designer or studio will elaborate on the design improving it or making it more accessible...without it being a copy. 

Hans Wegner debuted his "Easy Chair" in 1950. It is a classic of mid-century Scandinavian design.

In the 1970's a cousin of the chair began to be produced in Yugoslavia.

The Balkan version was more versatile and decorative; it could be folded in half and the rope detailing became more visually interesting.

In our opinion the Balkan version is actually more sculptural and has a touch more personality than the Wegner version.

Wegner's chair is still in production and retails for around $3,500.

Another attribute of the Balkan "Rope Chair is that it is far more affordable...

Caviar20 great design and great value.
