Brown & Cherry Herman Miller Original Vintage Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman
A great example of an original Herman Miller Eames lounge chair and ottoman finished in sumptuous brown leather and deep red cherry wood, perfect. The chocolate brown of the perfectly worn leather is wrapped in the beautiful cherry wood which has aged well creating a truly classic looking chair.
Cherry became an excellent alternative to rosewood, creating the same textured look and adding a splash of colour with the natural red of the wood. Herman Miller have continued to use this today though it is now accompanied by the visually stunning Santos wood which in turn replaced the rich grain Rosewood used to offer.
This lounge chair and ottoman are in very good condition for their age. The leather has become sublimely supple, reaching the perfect ‘worn in’ point and does not show too many signs of its age.
The silver label indicates this lounge chair and ottoman was produced between 1990 and 1999.
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 is in good condition for a used piece and is fully intact. It should be a good investment piece still.
