The question with things like this is always, "What's the quality like?" I've never sat on/seen any Baxton Studio furniture, but they are carried by some major American department stores. In some respects, that leads me to believe that there's a certain level of quality. But my guess is that you're probably getting what you pay for.
That being said, not everyone needs to own an original Eames. And I've got more than one knock off piece in my place that I'm perfectly happy with.
The only real information I could find about Baxton Stuido comes from their less-than-substantial website:
Baxton Studios is a Chicago based division of Wholesale Inteirors, Inc. The Baxton Studios line of furniture was designed to be high quality, have the ability to with stand shipping across the United States and to have a modern feel. We stock around 450 different furniture products at a time and very rapidly change our product line to suit the current styles.Anyone out there in blog land have experience with Baxton Studio? Was the furniture of decent quality? How do they compare to the originals?
