Black & Cherry Herman Miller Original Eames 50th Anniversary Lounge Chair & Ottoman
A great example of an original Herman Miller Eames lounge chair and ottoman finished in sumptuous black leather and a light cherry wood, perfect. As a 50th anniversary edition, the stark black of the well-worn in leather is wrapped in the beautiful cherry wood which has aged well creating a truly classic looking chair.
Cherry was a softer finish of wood introduced to give a less grainy finish. Herman Miller have continued to use this today, matching it with more unique leather colours – see our grey lounge chair and ottoman – to create a slightly more modern take on the iconic classic.
This is a great example of a special 50th anniversary edition of the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman. The plush black leather is in good used condition and the wood has a great patina.
The black circular label confirms this as being a 50th anniversary edition of the Lounge Chair and Ottoman.
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 has been well used and well loved; it is fully intact but does show its long life. It should be a good investment piece still, however.
