Double-Take: Target vs. Design Within Reach

It's time again for another double-take, where we take a designer piece and pit it head-to-head with a lookalike item from Tar-shay.  Today we have two sleek, modern black leather chairs vying for your attention.  One is the "Swan" chair from from Design Within Reach for a whopping $7,410, whereas the other is the "Xenia" chair from Target and is waaaaaay cheaper at just under $400.  Which one is which?  Check the comments section for the answer.

The chair on the left is from Target, and the one on the right is the uber-expensive one from Design Within Reach.

Yeah, especially not liking the seam on the arms, nor the cross base. The original is way more elegant, but I can certainly see why someone would want a knock-off, just not for $400.
