1970's Eames Chair with Rosewood and Black Leather



Eames Lounge Chair (670/671) in Rosewood and Black Leather with Ottoman for Herman Miller. Designed to be a refuge from the strains of modern living. This is a vintage chair dating between 1970s-1980’s. It retains the original Herman Miller tags on both the chair and the ottoman. The leather is in excellent condition and is beautifully supple . We will be re-polishing the aluminum base and touching it up.  The leather will be thoroughly cleaned. This chair has been thoughtfully designed to improve with age. 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 set on spacers supporting the reclined rosewood-veneered back and sumptuous leather cushions (designed by Alexander Girard). “ * In 1961, Playboy magazine 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.
