Grey Upholstered Herman Miller Original Eames Walnut LCW Lounge Chair
A modern take to a vintage classic. This beautiful Eames LCW Lounge Chair Walnut wood frame has been finished with its original Herman Miller grey fabric cushion. The addition of the fabric cushion means this already comfortable lounge chair has become even more so! The subtle colour looks amazing too!
The moulded plywood chair was the Eames’s true dream. The version they created, whilst absolutely stunning and much loved, was not their initial aim. Instead they dreamed of constructing a chair whose shell was made from 1 piece of moulded wood. After years of designing, the LCW chair appeared in 1947/48. A revolutionary chair, it did not gain massive interest straight away, but once displayed in New York the chair became highly sought-after.
The success of the chair encouraged the DCW variant to be born, the Dining Chair Wooden, and also the LCM and DCM, or Lounge Chair Metal frame and Dining Chair Metal frame.
As a used more modern version of this iconic chair, the chair has natural signs of wear but is in very good condition. The fabric cushions are in a very good condition with no cuts or tears in them.
The dated label on the underside indicates this chair was produced in 2018 by Herman Miller.
The Eames plywood chairs have been highly coveted for many years, with original Evan’s produced chairs commanding a high asking price. Being newer and in a rather unique finish, this chair is a reasonable investment which should see steady interest over time.
