A particularly nice Brazilian Rosewood and black leather Eames lounge chair & Ottoman produced by Herman Miller.
This is what is often described as a second generation chair with cushions filled with a mixture of latex and feather. In our opinion this is the most desirable version of this design classic. The Latex and feather cushions are incredibly comfortable and also take on a lovely wrinkled patina which is the aesthetic Charles & Ray Eames intended when they said they wanted the chair to look like a well worn baseball mitt. After 1971 production switched to the use of foam cushions.
This particular set is offered in excellent condition. The patina to the leather is absolutely gorgeous. The wooden shells have been repolished and show wonderful grain to the Brazilian Rosewood. There is some age related wear to the leather on the armrests and Ottoman with some crackling to the surface, this is nearly always evident on chairs of this vintage and does not detract.
This example also features rosewood veneer to the interior of the wooden shells, we believe this dates the chair to the mid 60’s.
A fabulous example and also one of the most comfortable we have sat in.
