I have stood, filled with longing, in front of a leather Fritz Hansen Egg Chair. I sat in it, closed my eyes, and thought seriously about it. Maybe if I didn't vacation for two yearsâ€¦Then I left DWR and, armed with knowledge of materials and measurements, began my quest for the best copy I could find. So many, many copies. So many, tamed and bloated, without tilt, with ugly leather, or with toxic flame retardant in the foam. I searched for months and settled on the chair from NJModern. I ordered it from the west coast, waited about 4 months (with my fingers crossed) and I am not disappointed.
It sits like the real thing. It moves like the real thing. The leather is thinner (of course) but doesn't look cheap. The stitches are bigger, but don't look sloppy. There are two seams I hadn't expected on the inside curve (joining the back to the arms), but they don't spoil the design and cannot be seen when the chair is occupied. And the shape is right. It is beautiful. And I love it.
If you want the real thing, there's only one way to get it. But if a $12,500.00 savings sounds too good to pass up, go with NJ Modern and, yes, you'll be sitting pretty.

LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!
I graduated with a BFA in fine arts, so when it comes to buying a repro of classic moderns I am as picky, and selective as they come.
INFACT I own an original Noguchi, so when it came time to purchase another more affordable copy of this beautiful table for another area in the house I spent tons of time investigating various repro's all over the web.
To be honest the biggest aspect to why I committed to NJ was because the friendly staff I spoke with assured me that the table I received would match the one on the site. Rarely do any other shops of classic modern furniture make such promises, and this to me was a sign of NJ's integrity.
After receiving my table I can say with 100% confidence that NJ modern's Noguchi table is FAR superior than other's available online.
The finish looks exactly as it does in the photographs, and its not a Laminate!!!- it is infact solid wood, with very strong durability. The glass Is IDENTICAL to my original Noguchi, (minus the signature) more over I was delighted to find that the beautiful tempered glass of NJ table even has a green tinge to it. (Exactly like the classic Noguchi!)
NJ Moderns table is highly superior, do your research, compare them to whomever else, but I swear, at the end of the day NJ moderns products will rule supreme.
I just CANNOT express the joy I have from this purchase, and if their is anyone out their who needs me to share my experience at more detail- contact me through my personal website (www.danielbenayun.com)
Thanks NJ modern! You rule!

I can't tell you how blown away I am with the quality of the rest of the items! They are exceptionally well made. The chairs are fantastic, and the benches are flawless. Why anyone would spend 3-4x the price to buy from DWR, knowing that equal quality can be bought from you, is beyond me. My guess is that people just don't know how good your product is and fear (as you say on your site) being stuck with sub-standard replicas. I challenge anyone to show me how DWR product is better than what I bought from you. Aside from a sticker or a claim of authenticity, there is no difference. Definitely a happy customer :)

I found NJModern while searching on the internet and purchased my Noguchi table over the web. They had the item in-stock and the quality was excellent! The reproduction of the original was good. I would say that the customer support that I got from NJModern was better than that of other competitors. I would buy from NJModern again. I ordered online and actually went to the store in Jersey to pick it up! Support was helpful in getting me there for the pickup.

Even though this is a reproduction, the glass is very heavy and the base seems well made and secure. I have visited several local stores in South Florida and I can honestly say that NJModern's prices are better that it's competitors. The sales representative that took my order (Sebastian) was great and helpful. Their website provided me with the information I needed to make my decision. Unlike other sites, the pictures ADEQUATELY represent the merchandise that I received. Bottom line? I love the table. Great price and wonderful quality. In the end it was a great purchase.

I found NJModern by doing a Google search and bought the merchandise over the phone. I purchased a few fiberglass shell rockers and the Eero Aarnio Bubble Chair from the absolutely fabulous Sebastian over the phone. I was doing a few sample suites in our hotel, and of course we needed everything ridiculously fast. Sebastian was happy to accommodate our tight schedule and endless phone calls! The items were shipped and received as expected and I would say the merchandise was of excellent quality. The reproduction of the original was excellent as well. I've dealt with other modern reproduction stores around the city, but Sebastian is much more accommodating and has a better selection. I would say that the reproductions from NJModern were of better quality than other competitors and they can even get items that were not on the website. The sales rep was informative and helpful and I would definitely buy from NJModern again!
