Brown & Cherry Herman Miller Original Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman
A great example of an original, used, Herman Miller Eames lounge chair and ottoman finished in sumptuous, plush, brown leather and deep red cherry wood, perfect. The chocolate brown of the gently used leather is wrapped in the beautiful cherry wood which does show some small marks 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 good condition for their age. The leather is in great condition with only subtle signs of use evident. The wood does display a little more age on it with some surface scratches on the back panels – further images are available upon request.
The black label indicates this lounge chair and ottoman was produced in the late 1980s.
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.
