Early Herman Miller Vintage Rosewood & Black Leather Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman
This is a very early Herman Miller Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman dating form the late 1950's and is considered a second generation. In Rosewood and black leather.
The dark Brazilian Rosewood was the first and only choice of wood types during the 1st and 2nd generation lounge chairs and this remained the case until later years when lighter rosewoods and other wood types were introduced.
This set is a second generation, denoted by the clip types, wood type, down fillings and aged mature veneer.
This chair is stunning! The dark Rosewood has a gorgeous natural pattern with many visible knots and much texture.
It is natural for chairs of this age to have relative aged patina but it is generally in very well maintained condition indeed.
Any Eames Lounge chair will likely have a special place in your home or office but a second generation in such a fantastic wood is going to be cherished. A great investment piece.
