I thought about getting the authentic Eames chair years ago when I was quitting my fulltime but the quote, even with my discount as an architect was just too much. I saw these in a local cafe where I study and so I sat in them for hours (!) before I found them on overstock. Like other reviews, the packaging is horrendous, they arrive scratched (its textured plastic) and are hard to put together. But now that they are in use, I don't mind the scratches. They also smelled horrendously when they arrived. I left them in the backyard overnight to offgas. After 24 hours they were suitable for indoor use. A visiting 3 year old managed to turn the chair over (kneeling and leaning forward on the table) but he was ok and his parents said that he's knocked over other chairs so I'm not sure whether this one is particularly easy to tip or not. It was a bit scary (for him and for me!) though.
