These Comparison guides are not meant to be exhaustive, but to help point out some key differences from our products (the Modern Classics Furniture brand) vs. the "signature" brands vs. the less expensive knock-offs on the market. Essentially, it breaks down to three key factors:
- Does the reproduction faithfully match the authentic design in sewing details, dimensions proportions and materials.
- Does the reproduction use quality materials such as stainless steel, 100% aniline-dyed leather on all exposed surfaces, quality bearings, hardwood frames, mortise and tenon joints, etc.
- Does the manufacturer/seller of the reproduction have a long history in producing these products, have essential quality control steps in place and adhere to those steps and does the seller actually have any control over the manufacturing.
