A general review
As a happy customer of Milano, having spent $ 4,077.15 net lately, here is my Statement:
I have been dealing with your company, in particular with Julija, to great satisfaction
Julija went to extremes to find and then organize products I was focussed on.
People with such attention to detail, customer-care and follow up are VERY RARE to find.
Her reliability, care and individual personal care are unmatched.
I wish you, and especially Julija, happy and rewarding continuation of your good business....Business ethics............ a rare find nowadays. Respectfully Heinz

Impressive Replica Quality
I am a designer and have work internationally on many high-end projects where I dealt with the actual original designer-furniture. The replicas you can get from Milano Republic are as close and as good as the originals for fraction of their cost! I have ordered few items from them and none of my guests could notice any difference.
The sales service was very welcoming and patient with my barrage of enquiries. Once satisfied, I ordered online but elected to pick the order from the warehouse myself. Therefore, I cannot comment on the delivery proc...
Perfect product and service
I can't recommend Milano Furniture highly enough. Their website was easy to navigate and our table arrived exactly on schedule. The quality is fantastic and we've very happy with our purchase.

Great customer service
I purchased a specific chair for a photography shoot. I ordered with what I believed to be enough time for it to be couriered up from the Sydney warehouse to where I am on the Northern Beaches of Sydney (I was advised it would take up to 3 business days so I ordered it 6 business days before my shoot). I don't know what happened with the courier but there was some delay and the day before my shoot it was still at the courier depot. They were useless, and the best they could offer was to 'try to get it to me in the morning before my shoot', whic...h was cutting it way too fine. But the team at Milano really seemed to care about my predicament. Brian, who I think is the manager, put another chair from the warehouse in his car and personally drove 40 minutes to meet me and make sure I had it for my shoot. I don't know which courier company they used, but I recommend if you want something delivered quickly, to organise your own reliable courier when ordering from this company. I cannot fault Milano's customer service or manner though, they are all great humans to deal with, especially Julija and Brian. And the chair was exactly as I ordered.
Don't believe their delivery dates - 21 weeks and still waiting
I ordered two chairs from Milano Direct in the middle of December 2020. ETA was stated as 10 to 18 weeks. I'm still waiting 21 weeks later.
Milano Direct don't ship from Italy; shipping is from China, and the ETA is for the ship arriving in Sydney port, not unloaded, clear of customs and in their warehouse. This was confirmed to me by their director, but only when I contacted them, again, at 20 weeks, to ask them why I still hadn't been contacted about delivery.
I'm now at 21 weeks. I'm still waiting for confirmation of their ETA. Had I known Milano Republic were going to be at least 11 weeks late from their best delivery date, and I'd still be waiting 5 months after making payment, I'd have gone elsewhere.

Please stay away from this company! Worse in Australia! Bad products without service!
I wish I had came across this site before I purchased anything from Milano. If I have read other people's comments, I bet I won't have such bad experience. I bought 3 same stools from Milano, it took me 3 weeks to arrive after I emailed them asking for what had been going on! Also, I am living in apartment, the delivery man only delivered your furniture to front door of your building, meaning I have to carry all 3 big heavy boxes myself!
Secondly, what surprised me was one of the stool delivered to me was with the wrong height as you can see i...
Not what we were told....
The chairs we ordered arrived with chemical spills. How this was even sent for sale is beyond me. No reply when we queried it. Maybe like us, they're hoping this will just go away. Find someone else. Very disappointed.
Excellent service, excellent product
Our experience with Milano Republic is A+, serviced well and professional. We did not go on line but phoned and spoke with a young man called Chris who helped us with ordering an Eames white aniline leather chair and ottoman. We paid with credit card, got a confirmation and a week later the chair was at our place, 550 km north of Sydney. Super comfortable, looks lovely, and worth every penny. And to everyone complaining : this is a copy, people, if you want the real deal, pay 6000 dollars instead of the 1400. Simple as that. PS thank you, Chris, for your excellent service and patience. You went out of your way to send us one in stock, super fast, and in perfect condition.
Eames lounge chair torture-chamber.
Recently acquired a premium leather replica Eames armchair from MR online. First the good - looks like a reasonable approximation of the real thing from afar and quality seems ok. Now for the bad- there are a few minor quibbles such as the ottoman not being secured to the base and the stain colour of the plywood shell being far too light however the biggest fault with this product is that it is so damned uncomfortable! After researching this ( http://midcenturycentral.com/the-best-eames-chair-replica/ ) I can only conclude that unlike the reall...y good rip-offs , the Milano Republic Eames lounge chair is constructed with the headrest set too far forward. This forces your head forward and you end up being hunched over in the seat rather than reclining comfortably as you do in the original. I cannot emphasise enough how unpleasant it is to sit in this chair. Other knock-offs used to counter this by offering a recline (or spring) mechanism which although not true to the original, actually improved the ergonomics of the chair. My advice is never buy one of the these from the internet unless you have first visited the showroom, checked the quality and tested the torture-chamber seating position for yourself.
Great product snd service
I have purchased wishbone chair and received in great order. We are very happy with the product as well as with customer service.

After reading so many negative reviews, I took a risk and purchased from their Online Store, as they were the only company stocking the product. Had ZERO issues throughout. It was easy to order online, got my tracking number right away and delivery was efficient. The product looks exactly like what was on offer too.

Refused to refund my order - awful customer care
Purchased a chair over the weekend as was getting back pain from current WFH situation. The chair had not shipped by Tuesday evening (which is fine) but was concerned about finances and decided that I really shouldn't have spent any money given COVID and my financial status.
Called the warehouse, they said no problem. Which I thought was great.
I received a call a few hours later from "customer service" informing me that they will not refund me as the "website policy" says it has to be cancelled within 24hrs - but they could give me a store c...redit, which I let them know was absolutely zero help to me. After arguing with them for some time and asking for: a) Some empathy around the situation given it wasn't even shipped yet b) Asking to talk to someone who could in fact make these decisions instead of merely quoting "policies"
Should have read reviews first!
ordered 3 stools from Milano Republic. Below is the chair ordered on the website and below is the chair I recieved. Different design to the one shown on the website.
Used their text message system to get in contact with them - whoever was responding did not seem to read the messages as she did not actually understand the issue and was asking me to send photos I had already sent and she had responded to.
Called the office phone number and got the warehouse. I was told I’d have to keep calling until I got the office number. Spoke to someone at ...the warehouse eventually and they did not read the email properly or respond appropriately. In response to this issue I was called a week and a half later. They told me it was my mistake!!! Which is confusing because when my husband spoke to them on the phone about the issue, the warehouse manager said there was an issue with the website. They did not apologise and blamed their tech issue on me. Disappointing and disrespectful conversation from contact at head office!!
Very poor quality wishbone replica chairs
Chairs looked great when they arrived but after only a couple of month's light use the seating cord has loosened and now there are gaps in it. It looks terrible.
I tried to post a review on the Milano Republic website but they haven't let it publish - likely because it's not positive.
Not recommended to shop here
Worst customer service, after a month now refund procced
I bought an item 1 of April. In the item when I bought it was in stock. After they said it is out of stock. 2ndly they said they refunded me on 9 of April. Today is 14 of May and the refund still hadn`t proceeded yet. Try to avoid this store if you wouldn`t want any headache
