Black Set (4) Herman Miller Original Eames LCM Lounge Chair Metal Base
A set of black stained original version of the iconic Eames Herman Miller LCM lounge chair these pieces are some beautiful examples of the Eames plywood chair. The black stained finish adds a stylish and sophisticated look to the classic design which will add the same to your own home or reception space!
With the initial design dating back to the early 1940s, Charles and Ray launched this revolutionary style of chair from New York where they caught the eye of George Nelson himself who subsequently drafted them into Herman Millers’ employ. The earlier variants came with a wooden base, but as time passed, the Eames’s changed the base to metal and gradually made small changes to the molded shape of the plywood seat to maintain its modern look as the fashion trends changed.
The black stained wood really makes these iconic pieces stand out and will really help to make them a talking point no matter where you wish to place them. There are some signs of use and age to them – which is to be expected – but this does not detract from the look of these amazing pieces.
The bases show natural signs of age with some marks on the frames but they are in very good condition otherwise and still have all of their original feet.
The label on the underside of the bases indicate they were produced in 2014 by Herman Miller.
The plywood Eames chairs are a much sought-after piece of history. Investment value varies dependent upon age and the all wood chairs are the chairs, unsurprisingly, are the version that most increase over time. The later variants with metal frames are still reasonable investment pieces, however.
