Eames Herman Miller Rosewood Lounge Chair And Ottoman - Vintage For SaleThis is a beautiful vintage Herman Miller Eames Lounge Chair, model 670 and 671. This particular set has a gorgeous, deep, dark, Brazilian rosewood shell with nice grain. The chair and ottoman are both in black leather and have aged magnificently. The chair still has its original Herman Miller stickers and white paper stickers attached.
Around 1971, Herman Miller made a few changes to the Eames lounge and ottoman in order to make it a better functioning and longer lasting chair. They changed the clips from the round clip style to longer black clips. They changed the cardboard backing to a plastic fiberboard, changed the cushion filling, and soon changed the label from a round medallion to a rectangular black label. A few other minor changes were made as well, all going along with Charles and Ray Eames' philosophy to improve a design over time.
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, and worn in to perfection.
The armrests have aged well and show expected wear for their age. They are 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 desired.
