Eames lounge chair, black leather and rosewood
One of (if not the most) iconic designs of the 20th Century, the Eames Lounge chair & Ottoman personifies mid-Century cool.
Designed originally in the 1950's ,The Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman originate in Charles and Ray’s investigations into molding plywood and a desire to improve upon a familiar fixture in many living rooms: the lounge chair. Citing the English club chair as inspiration, Charles said he sought to design a modern version of that chair, one that had “the warm receptive look of a well-used first baseman's mitt.” Almost immediately, the design became an icon of American design. Today, these pieces not only live in museums, but continue to offer comfort and style to interiors everywhere.
This beautiful vintage piece is Circa 1960's. It is in fantastic vintage condition with some signs of usage expected with its age. It's rosewood shell has a beautiful patterned grain. The leather is in great original condition for its age with a charming aged patina. The Herman Miller makers mark can be found under the base of the footstool.
