Aniline Red Herman Miller Original Eames LCW Wooden Lounge Chair
A modern take to a vintage classic. This beautiful Eames LCW Lounge Chair Wooden has been finished in original Herman Miller factory aniline red. This eye-catching colour gives a vibrant finish to this classic piece along with a ruby-like shine whilst simultaneously retains the wood grain these chairs are famed for.
The moulded plywood chair was the Eames’s true dream. The version they created, whilst absolutely stunning and much loved, was not their initial aim. Instead they dreamed of constructing a chair whose shell was made from 1 piece of moulded wood. After years of designing, the LCW chair appeared in 1947/48. A revolutionary chair, it did not gain massive interest straight away, but once displayed in New York the chair became highly sought-after.
The success of the chair encouraged the DCW variant to be born, the Dining Chair Wooden, and also the LCM and DCM, or Lounge Chair Metal frame and Dining Chair Metal frame.
As a used more modern version of this iconic chair, the chair has natural signs of wear but is in very good condition.
The unique red finish is in great condition. It has an amazing shine which is one of Herman Miller’s premium finishes.
The black sticker on the underside of the chair indicates it is a newer example of the iconic chair.
The Eames plywood chairs have been highly coveted for many years, with original Evan’s produced chairs commanding a high asking price. Being newer, this chair is a reasonable investment which should see steady interest over time.
