Options For Cheaper Version of Restoration Hardware Buckle Chair

Assisted Living: A Cheaper Buckle Chair

Recently, CasaSugar Community member Colbie wrote into the Assisted Living group looking for an affordable alternative to the Restoration Hardware Buckle Chair ($815). Having just moved into a new home, she's trying to budget for several pieces, and while she'd love to splurge on the chair, its price is nearly as much as the sofa she's had her eye on as well.

While I scoured my usual sources (and then some) for something similar, I had a hard time coming up with anything that's a near match to the Restoration Hardware chair (which is absolutely gorgeous). The Anthropologie Rhys Chair ($2,500) has a similar buckle detail, but it costs a lot more than the Restoration Hardware chair. I found an Arne Norell Safari Chair on 1stDibs that has buckles, but since a potential buyer needs to contact the dealer for pricing information, I'm not hopeful about the cost.

Here are two cheaper options: For a leather chair without buckles, consider the Urban Outfitters Leather Butterfly Chair ($250). It looks great in person and is getting good reviews online. Currently on eBay is this Danish Safari Chair. It's similar to the 1stDibs chair, but at a lower price point. You also have the option of buying it now for about $330 plus shipping. Good luck!

Anyone else have any comments or suggestions for Colbie? Please share them below.

I think this totally calls for a DIY - - an old vinyl and steel dining chair, faux finish painting, and a couple of belts. Here's a cheap base chair: http://cgi.ebay.com/RESTAURANT-HOME-KITCHEN-SIDE-CHAIR-MINT-GREEN-VINYL-/160492632721?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item255e1b3a91
