Here is an unusual collectible:

Rennie Mackintosh was famous for his high backed chair designs, one of which (the 'Argyle') turned up in Deckard's apartment.



Unfortunately, Mackintosh's iconic chairs are nearly impossible to obtain, with prices for them going in excess of $15,000 on Ebay--lF you can find them at all (most are in museums).

I found an ltalian seller on Ebay that made reproductions of the chair in 1:6 scale. Not terribly cheap--$200--but a much less expensive addition to my BR collection than the full size thing:

TFS Cydonia...yes, those miniature chairs are quite expensive. There's websites around that sell those 1/6 scale chairs (known architects/designersL Mies Van Deroe, FLLW, Le Corbusier, Mackintosh, etc).
Some are as expensive as a 1:1 scale because of the amount of time it takes a person to build one...by hand Shocked

An Italian maker also makes repro of the Mackintosh chair and the price is around $1600 for one.

This one came from www.21catiacreations.it

I just need a 1:6 Rachel to sit in it now.

Take a bunch of pics to a wood shop. They can likely make a 1/1 for you for a few hundred. Heck I can make most of it and I am no wood smith (if that's a word).

As an ex-cabinet maker (in another life) I know that chairs are a trade in itself. Not simple to do and having the proper tools to build one is a must.
The Argyle is not a crazy design...
But even a pro with the proper equipment will certainly ask you a pretty penny for that chair.
