<---60s Herman Miller Eames Lounge Chair 670 Ottoman 671 Vintage Era Red Leather For SaleItem Details
For sale is this vintage 1960s Charles and Ray Eames Lounge Chair (670) and Ottoman (671) in original Rust Red leather with Brazilian Rosewood shells. Manufactured by Herman Miller prior to 1971, this magnificent piece has many early earmarks and features, including; the highly desirable 100% down and duck feather padding/stuffing, rubber shock mounts and molded-plastic backings with (2) grommets and (2) subsequent snaps. I am the proud 2nd owner, having purchased it from a dealer in Michigan several years ago, having brokered it from an architect's Palm Springs, CA estate, who had apparently custom ordered the piece new sometime in the late-'60s. This all original example certainly displays years of love and comfortable enjoyment, as the leather's creases have begun to expose the untreated material beneath. But for me, that is what attracted me to this absolutely gorgeous example. I really appreciated the unrestored patina, which resultantly created a fit that's like that of an worn in baseball mitt. The bases are in excellent shape, both of which retain all of the original screw-on rubber foot glides. All of the shells are in excellent structural condition with no scratches nor significant chips, the insides of which are all factory stamped "301."
The original white and black HERMAN MILLER Zeeland, Michigan labels are both long gone, with only the silhouette of where it was once attached being visible. The round Herman Miller badges have also fallen off from the incredibly dry heat of the Palm Springs desert weather, rendering anything with any moisture whatsoever absolutely ineffective.
Less than a year ago, LA Modern saleed a similar example procured from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) for over $11,000.00. Keep in mind, custom-ordered, custom-colored Eames lounges are becoming extremely difficult to find in nice survivor shape, so don't miss out, because this is a fantastic find being sold to the highest buyer, with , which means regardless of price, this set will be sold!
