Aniline Red Pair (2) Herman Miller Original Eames LCW Wooden Lounge Chairs
A modern take to a vintage classic. These beautiful Eames LCW Lounge Chair Wooden are finished in an eye-catching original Herman Miller factory aniline red. This colour gives a vibrant finish to these classic pieces along with a ruby-like shine whilst simultaneously retaining the wood grain these chairs are famed for.
The moulded plywood chair was the Eames’s true dream. The version they created, whilst absolutely stunning and much loved, was not their initial aim. Instead they dreamed of constructing a chair whose shell was made from 1 piece of moulded wood. After years of designing, the LCW chair appeared in 1947/48. A revolutionary chair, it did not gain massive interest straight away, but once displayed in New York the chair became highly sought-after.
The success of the chair encouraged the DCW variant to be born, the Dining Chair Wooden, and also the LCM and DCM, or Lounge Chair Metal frame and Dining Chair Metal frame.
As used more modern versions of this iconic chair, the chairs have natural signs of wear but are in very good condition.
The unique red finish is in great condition. It has an amazing shine which is one of Herman Miller’s premium finishes. The main pictures used are of a flatter red, but please refer to the other images provided to see the actual colour of them.
The black sticker on the underside of the chairs indicate they are newer examples.
The Eames plywood chairs have been highly coveted for many years, with original Evan’s produced chairs commanding a high asking price. Being newer, these chairs are a reasonable investment which should see steady interest over time.
