I used to sell the real, designer-made version of this at a furniture store in California. So many people came in and said it was too expensive for them to spend on children's furniture but the thing is this is not child-sized! It's not sized for large adults, but average to small adults (remember the real thing was made in the mid-1900s when there weren't a lot of overweight and obese individuals!). That being said, I've always wanted one but didn't have the budget so I scooped this up in a flash. It's strikingly similar to the one I sold years ago.
