Black & Rosewood Herman Miller Original Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman
The most iconic Eames chair can’t get better. Finished in original black leather and sumptuous Rosewood, it feels like one of Herman Miller’s flagship chairs! The classic look is by far the most sought after of these amazing chair sets and with its well-worn leather, it really does feel like sitting in a baseball glove!
Rosewood has always been the classic finish of a vintage Lounge Chair and was changed to Palisander Santos in later years. The rich finish rosewood offered varied from chair to chair. Herman Miller introduced other wood finishes to offer a good range and these were accompanied by the ‘Special White Hot Edition’, finished in white ash, and the ‘Special Edition All Black’ finished in a black stained wood.
This lounge chair and ottoman are in good condition for their age. The chair has been lovingly kept and the original leather is in a well-kept, well-worn manner with no tears or rips in it. The deep colour of the gorgeous wood is fantastic and only shows light signs of age with some gentle aged marks on some of the panels but is mostly superb considering its age.
The black medallion label indicates this lounge chair and ottoman was produced between 1964 and 1971.
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 is one of the greatest investment pieces you can own and, better yet, is supremely comfortable! Whether you want it as an investment piece or a statement piece, this set easily covers both!
