Brown & Rosewood Herman Miller Original Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman
A great example of an original Herman Miller Eames lounge chair and ottoman finished in sumptuous brown leather and gorgeous deep red and wonderfully grainy rosewood, perfect. The deep brown of the perfectly worn leather is wrapped in the beautiful rosewood which has aged well creating a truly classic looking chair.
Rosewood has always been the classic finish of a vintage Lounge Chair and was changed to Palisander Santos in later years. The rich finish rosewood offered varied from chair to chair. Herman Miller introduced other wood finishes to offer a good range and these were accompanied by the ‘Special White Hot Edition’, finished in white ash, and the ‘Special Edition All Black’ finished in a black stained wood.
This lounge chair and ottoman are in good condition for their age. The leather has become sublimely supple, reaching the perfect ‘worn in’ point but there are some slight cuts in the arm where the leather has been well worn which are reflected in the price.
The deep rosewood has a great vintage patina to it.
The black label indicates this lounge chair and ottoman was produced between 1971 and 1990.
The Eames lounge chair and ottoman set was produced as a luxurious chair and was sold as such, however, its famed build quality and superior materials has meant they have become excellent investment pieces. This chair is in good condition for a used piece and is fully intact. It should be a good investment piece still.
