Office furniture making giant Herman Miller believes Walmart could be selling cheaper knockoff versions of its furniture.
Walmart’s Poly and Bark Sculpture Coffee Table, launched in February through the company’s new home shopping site, caught the attention of news and design publication Curbed, who noticed an uncanny resemblance to Herman Miller‘s Noguchi Table. The wood and glass Noguchi Table was designed by Isamu Noguchi in 1947 and is considered one of the most famous tables of the 20th century.
A new Noguchi Table from Herman Miller costs around $1,800. Walmart’s Poly and Bark Sculpture Coffee Table costs $309.
