Eames Lounge Chair (670/671) in Rosewood and Black Leather with Ottoman for Herman Miller. Designed to be a refuge from the strains of modern living. This is a vintage chair dating between 1970s-1980’s. We are not sure of the production date. We purchased the chair from the original owner who was a prominent architect in San Clemente. He had a long-standing business relationship with Herman Miller and was told by the company this was the last Rosewood chair off the assembly line. The story is that they gifted him the chair as a thank you for being such a loyal business partner. It retains the original Herman Miller tags on both the chair and ottoman. The leather will be in excellent condition with a beautifully supple feel once we recondition it. We will be refinishing the wood and re-polishing the aluminum base and back struts (which were painted black). The leather will be thoroughly cleaned and will have some minor reconditioning done. This chair has been thoughtfully designed to improve with age. Treat yourself and enjoy one of the most iconic chairs of the modern era.
According to Charles Eames, this chair was designed to emit the “warm receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt. It was designed as a special refuge from the strains of modern living. The iconic Eames chair is three curved plywood shells: a headrest, backrest, and seat. Two metal spines set on spacers supporting the reclined rosewood-veneered back and sumptuous leather cushions (designed by Alexander Girard). “ * In 1961, Playboy magazine sang the chair’s praises by saying the Eames Lounge Chair and ottoman “sank the sitter into a voluptuous luxury that few mortals since Nero have known”. Give this chair a try and you will understand why so many hail it as the world’s most comfortable chair. A piece of history and luxury, an icon of design.
