Eames Lounge Chair (670/671) in Rosewood and Black Leather with Ottoman for Herman Miller is designed to be a refuge from the strains of modern living. This is a vintage chair dating back to the early 1960s we are not sure of the exact production date but it has all the hallmarks of an early vintage chair, round silver cushion clips on the inside of the chair, down cushions, early white Herman Miller medallion. We purchased the chair from the son of the original owner in San Diego. It sat in their lounge practically unused for decades. The leather has an amazing patina and has a beautifully supple feel. 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.
