              This is my second Wassily. I bought the first one 3 years ago at
              another local retailer. It was a great chair and I wanted another.
              The Room & Board version is IDENTICAL and half the price.

                We use these chairs in our formal living room. They are actually a lot more comfortable than they appear. We originally joked that we would put our unwelcome guests in these chairs so they would leave quickly. Unfortunately, everyone loves these chairs.

                      Why can't you order the Marcel Breuer Wassily Chair in colors other than black? Seems like you are missing out on sales. I'd like to buy 2 but not in black.

                        Our Marcel Breuer Wassily chair is a faithful reproduction using the exact materials, dimensions, and production processes as the original design. However, the rights to the Marcel Breuer signature are not owned by us, therefore there is no need for an authentication stamp.

                      Q:

                      1. What does the Wassily chair weight (out of the carton)?

                      2. Are all leather edges dyed black?

                      3. Other than trademark/attribution issues, is there any difference between the physical appearance, materials and manufacture and design details (including metal seems, tube ends and fasteners) between your and the Knoll chair?

                        A:

                        The Wassily Chair is 32 pounds. It is a faithful reproduction and, by definition, is created using the same specifications as the chair from Knoll. The designs for a piece are not trademarked, only a name. This also means the materials are exactly the same as are the construction methods. As a faithful reproduction, the edges of the leather on the chair are also black.

                        the chrome lightly. Dry the chrome with a soft cloth to remove any soap residue.
