Aubergine Herman Miller Original High Back Eames EA437 Office Chair Castor Base
The iconic Eames office chair. The ‘High Back’, ‘Soft Pad’ Eames EA437 for Herman Miller is by far the most popular version of the iconic Aluminium Chair range. With its comfortable foam cushioning adorned in deep purple leather this chair is truly a great example of professional design for the professional environment.
This chair was designed specifically for the work environment, be it home or office, and with its adjustable height, it fits comfortably under any desk space. Ray and Charles wanted the chair to be a statement piece used by the executive whilst simultaneously preventing it from being imposing and creating it to be an inviting, yet prestigious, item; much like its user.
This is a used piece; it does show wear consistent with this but is otherwise in good condition. The deep purple leather is supple and there are no tears; it does have a slight scratch evident on the lowest of the backrest cushions but it has not punctured it and the manual height adjustment works perfectly. The castors still roll perfectly and are not damaged.
The castors are slightly different to the listing pictures, please refer to the extra image outlining what they look like. The colour of the chair in the pictures look more black than Purple; we have further images available upon request.
The label on the underside indicates this is an original Herman Miller chair from 1996.
The Eames aluminium range are always strong investment pieces due to being such iconic pieces. Being the Executive version with full purple leather should see this chair retaining its value easily.
