Cantilevered side chairs for great justice.

I am furnishing a small studio apartment. I live two blocks away from a Restoration Hardware showroom. I like this $129 chair there. Restoration Hardware will not sell me a floor sample and they will not ship to store. The fixed home delivery charge is $125 whether you're buying 8 chairs or just one. I just need one. Find me a suitable replacement that will cost less than $250 all told.

Desirable features:
  1. not plastic
  2. minimal and easy on the eye
  3. cantilevered, therefore slightly bouncy

This one looks similar, can't tell if it is cantilevered. It might be plastic, but looks like wood.

The grey one on Etsy only ships via Greyhound freight. Sadly, it would cost me the difference to rent a Zipcar and drive down to the nearest Greyhound freight location.

After a long while, I bought an Ikea Tobias. It has weird plastic runners that are tearing up my carpet, so maybe it would have been better to just buy the chair I actually wanted.
