i completely agree with robinesque. too many furniture items are going for waaay above the price that they are worth. go to a junk yard. you can find some great items there to make your own furniture. that is if you like that hobo-chic thing.

The thing you all are forgetting is that you could not make IT or buy IT at IKEA. It is from the 1930's and is a design pioneer. You could imitate it and make a look alike. But you did not make it up. Just like art when people say "I could paint that", they didn't. Someone else did. They could now paint a copy. There is a difference. And the price must be because it is rare. Still I wouldn't spend 10,000 on this.

I am not a big one for early modernist furniture, even if it is a very important piece of work for the period. But I would throw money around for art and fashion that is at the cutting edge of its time!

Estelle, My thoughts exactly. Even if money were no object that doesn't mean you should blow it on useless items, give it to someone that could really use it (there's plenty).

What the f*ck? Seriously. Do people really not have anything better to spend their money on? If you want to give away money, donate it. It goes to a better cause.

I am like the others, I think we are going to be rich! So capable of making them, even better that I work at a factory that produces crates huh!

If money's not an issue, as in I must be stupid rich, then yes, but I'll only do it because I can.

This is like those paintings that are nothing but black poured on the canvas, hung with pride at a well-known art institute I know. It should be titled "I can't believe I got away with this!" I'm going to take crates, post them nearby for $5000 and undercut the bastard!

It's such an easy DIY, why would I spend that much?

Wow. That's a lot of cash for that. I could probably get a friend to make me a table just like that, and all I'd have to pay is a 6-pack of cheap beer and a pizza.

Eff that! My parents live on a farm, I'll just make one for myself, thank you very much. speaking of... I could seriously make 10,000 dollars off of something like that? Maybe this is how I will pay off my student loans.
