Original Eames Lounge Chair produced by Herman Miller. This is what many would describe as a second generation chair as it features cushions filled with a mix of feather down and latex. Later chairs produced after 1971 featured foam cushion.
The feather and Latex cushions are incredibly comfortable and in our opinion far superior to the later chairs produced with foam cushions. Not only are the feather and latex cushion much more comfortable to sit on they also take on a beautiful wrinkled aesthetic which is what Charles and Ray intended when they designed this chair.
This particular chair is a beautiful example offered in excellent condition. The chair exhibits only very mild wear for its age and is completely original with no replacement parts. Chairs of this vintage in this condition are very hard to find.
The leather cushions are in nice vintage condition, there are some minor age related marks and nicks but no cracks or tears to the leather itself. There is an area at the back of the seat cushion where a split zip seem has been glued closed, this is barely visible.
The interior of the chair is also veneered in Rosewood. Not all vintage Eames lounge chairs feature a rosewood finish to the inside, this is a very nice feature and enhances this examples collectibility. We would estimate this chair was produced in the mid to late 60’s.
This is a chair only without the Ottoman however we do have another chair offered with an Ottoman in a separate listing.
Chairs of this vintage are far superior to the chairs produced today.
