few changes to the Eames lounge and ottoman in order to make it a better

style to longer black clips. They changed the cardboard backing to a plastic

Overall, the cushions are in good shape for the age and have a really nice patina. There are a no real scratches
that I can see, no cat scratches, and no tears. The leather is supple, clean,

both supple as well.
The rosewood shells are ingreat condition and have an excellent Rosewood grain to them as you can see form the pictures.
The shock mounts are in great shape as they were replaced by Herman Miller so they will be strong for the next 20-30 years.
Bases and Metal:
The aluminum bases are in excellent condition. The feet move nicely, paint is
all there, and aluminum still gives off a lovely shine. There are a couple of
light scratches on here and there, though they can be polished out if really
