Brown Herman Miller Vintage Eames EC178 Loose Cushion Lounge Arm Chair
An example of a used Original Herman Miller Eames EC178 Loose Cushion Lounge Arm Chair in chocolate brown hopsack fabric, completed with an original universal base. This armchair comes with removable cushions, making it very easy maintain. This brown upholstered lounge armchair is a perfect addition if you are looking to add a vintage piece to your office.
Eames EC178 Loose Cushion is a rather unique adaptation to the fibreglass upholstered armchair, and was designed to enable the cushions to be removable, hence the name "Loose Cushions Chair". Marketed as a workplace armchair, this design was released in 1971, to fit with the changing work market and offices interiors. On a universal base, this armchair embodies class and functionality and would make a fantastic office chair.
The brown hopsack upholstery is original and in good vintage condition with no lifts or tears; some aged signs of use may be present but this should be removable with a small clean. The white shell is in good condition too with no dents or scratches.
The brown cushions are removable and will need some cleaning, further images are available upon request.
The indented Herman Miller stamp suggests that the chair was manufactured around 1970-1988.
Eames shell chairs widely range in respects of being investment prospects. The age of the shell coupled with its condition greatly affects this alongside the colour, the factory of origin and whether or not it comes with its original base. Being an excellent example of an original upholstered chair, this should be a reasonable investment piece.
