Image conscious singletons are turning to designer furniture replicas to impress lovers in the recession, according to sales figures published by Swanky Rooms. The online furniture retailer has reported a 66% rise in sales of the sexy Barcelona style chair, originally designed in the 1920s by Mies Van Der Rohe.

The recession has encouraged people to stay-put rather than moving, so they are keen to put a stamp on their home with quality replica designer furniture at an affordable price.

According to the latest sales figures published by Swanky Rooms (http://www.swankyrooms.co.uk), modern Casanovas are now turning to replica designer furniture to make sure the magic lasts when that lucky someone comes back to the love nest.

The online retailer reported a 66% rise in sales of the Barcelona style chair purchased by single professionals aged between 22 and 34 during the first 6 months of 2011. The designer chair has become popular with the cost-conscious who are concentrating on improving their homes on a budget.

The Barcelona chair was originally designed in 1929 by Bauhaus designer Mies Van Der Rohe. The sensual leather and stainless steel construction appeals to image conscious singletons looking to create an atmosphere of contemporary romance at home.

Mies Van Der Rohe and other Bauhaus designers were intent on bringing functional furniture to the masses; a sentiment that has obviously struck a chord with consumers in Britain’s current economic climate.

Furniture lovers are turning to replica furniture retailers to avoid the hefty price tag of over £4000 when purchasing a genuine Barcelona chair. Over 70% of consumers are instead buying furniture online to save up to 89% off the original price.

Whilst the thought of singletons buying furniture to impress a partner might have you thinking of dimmer switches, clap-on fireplaces, or even the décor of the Playboy mansion; it is in fact much more subtle.

The emphasis is on seductive materials with a contemporary edge, as well as sleek design and clean lines – a look that has been associated with modernism. Successful woo-ers are interested in sensual materials that feel good against skin and furniture that has a sturdy construction to survive rigorous use…

The founder of Swanky Rooms commented; ‘Young professionals are becoming more image conscious in terms of home furnishings because they want to create a good impression for their visitors. The recession has encouraged people to stay-put rather than moving, so they are keen to put a stamp on their home with quality replica designer furniture at an affordable price.’
