Lounge Chair (670/671) in Rosewood and Leather with Ottoman for Herman Miller. Designed to be a refuge from the strains of modern living. This is a vintage chair circa 1975 that retains the original Herman Miller tags on both the chair and the ottoman. It has been restored including refinished rosewood shells, new shock mounts, polished metal bases to a chrome finish (still to come), and refreshed leather cushions. 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 are 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.
