Will the real dining chair please stand up?

I’ve been price comparing on this dining chair for an entire month, and it appears that there are imposters.

One of these chairs is worth $430, and the other is worth $40. Can you tell which is which?

Nearly identical, right? Here’s the answer:

1. Eiffel Chair, Kitchen Stuff Plus, $40

2. Eames Moulded Plastic Side Chair, Herman Millar Store, $430.

I’ve been thinking about this for a few weeks: Is it morally wrong to buy a knock off chair? This chair is basically the Louis Vuitton bag of expensive furniture: replicated many times and devalued by copycats.

What would you do? Sound off in the comments!
