Blue Pair (2) Herman Miller Original Eames EA178 Loose Cushion Armchair
A pair of Herman Miller original Eames EA178 Loose Cushion Armchairs in blue on contract bases are a rare find to own and even more so in such good condition. These majestic statement pieces are Charles and Ray’s own adaptation of their popular arm shell. The extended back rest along with the addition of the cushion makes for a more luxurious chair which allows the user to sink into it.
Whilst looking similar to the traditional arm shell, this chair used different methods of production to create it. Made from a polyester shell and using urethane foam filling to attach the fabric to the top, made a more cushioned chair whilst being relatively light for its size. The chair was originally designed as a desk chair, but is more than comfortable being used as a lounge chair, especially with their contract bases.
This pair are in amazing condition; the fabric is unmarked, as are the shells. The bases could do with a clean but very little work will be required.
Charles and Ray’s works are always worth collecting and to find a pair of these chairs is a rarity and being in such condition only helps to increase the investment prospects. A worthy investment to make, these chairs are usable in a home or office space.
