The (Mart Stam) Delta chairs arrived a week or so ago as you indicated and we are delighted with them. Robust construction great finish to the chrome frames and very good leather. Thank you for all your help regarding the chairs - you were of course absolutely right they are well made and good quality reproductions - it is great to have them. Looking forward now very much to delivery of the Charles Eames chair and stool.

This is just to let you know that the Cesca chairs arrived this evening and we’re very pleased with them. The delivery proceeded exactly as you predicted. The first date offered came very quickly after the chairs were collected, but when I was forced to decline this date your couriers were quick to oblige with an alternative. On the appointed day they appeared on time, following a courtesy call to let me know when they would arrive, and the guys themselves were friendly and polite – which always makes a big difference. It was a pleasure doing business with you. With kind regards.

Thanks so much for organizing delivery of the Eames chair. Against all the odds, it arrived in time for Christmas and was in perfect condition. Once my dad saw it bedecked with a gold ribbon, it actually bought a tear to his eye so has to be the most successful Christmas present ever! I’d better start saving to get one for myself now.

Design icons provided me the 3 key elements for a smooth purchase; a fabulous product, a great price and an unequalled customer service. I highly recommend them to all and will use their services in the future. 
October 2006

I have spent much time and effort in trying to source a good quality reproduction of the Eames chair at a sensible price. I can honestly say I am amazed by the quality of the chair supplied by design icons. The leather is of a high grade and the veneer used is real rosewood, unlike many other chairs I looked at which use rosewood "effect" finishes. 
September 2006

Just to confirm safe delivery of the BRNO chair today by courier. Thanks for your efficiency and pleasant business manner. 
July 2006

I must say that the chairs are absolutely beautiful. They met every description outlined in the website pictures, descriptions and our conversations. The packing was well done. The leather very nice and the chrome frames are superbly polished and formed. The slightly curved back cushion and seamless corners are some of the finer details that many reproductions fail to posses.
