This is a vintage chair dating back to the 1960s we are not sure of the exact production date but it has all the hallmarks of a vintage 2nd generation chair, rosewood, round cushion clips on the inside of the chair, and vintage Herman Miller patent label. Leather is in beautiful original condition with new foam filling. Treat yourself and enjoy one of the most iconic chairs of the modern era.
According to Charles Eames, this chair was designed to emit the “warm receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt. It was designed as a special refuge from the strains of modern living. The iconic Eames chair is three curved plywood shells: a headrest, backrest, and seat. Two metal spines are set on spacers supporting the reclined rosewood-veneered back and sumptuous leather cushions (designed by Alexander Girard). “ * In 1961, Playboy sang the chair’s praises by saying the Eames Lounge Chair and ottoman “sank the sitter into a voluptuous luxury that few mortals since Nero have known”. Give this chair a try and you will understand why so many hail it as the world’s most comfortable chair. A piece of history and luxury, an icon of design.
