This is the replica Eames RAR rocking chair I recently purchased.
As I mentioned before, #33 on my Life List is 'buy an original Eames', and I have every intention to replace this chair with an original. However in the meantime I have this fake to work with.
Ever since I purchased it for a bargain price $35, it has been living in our attic, un-loved. One reason for this is because we currently have no place to put it in our house, but the REAL reason is because Husband doesn't appreciate the chair's beauty.

Therefore I thought I would write this post as defence to my chair, and show people why I think the RAR chair will look great in any room, especially in my house.
The RAR chair (rocking armchair rod base) was designed in 1948 by Charles and Ray Eames and was the first commercial success of Charles and Ray Eames.
The RAR was first shown at the Museum of Modern Art in 1948, and it has remained as popular as it did in the 40's, now in 2012.
More about the chair can be found here.
