Black & Rosewood Herman Miller Original Vintage Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman
The classic and iconic combination, a vintage, sumptuous black leather and gorgeous rich red rosewood Herman Miller Eames 670 Lounge chair and 671 ottoman set. Perhaps the most sought-after version of this fantastic design piece, the leather has been lovingly updated and pops off the deep red of the rosewood!
First introduced in 1956, the Herman Miller Eames lounge chair was offered as both a single item and along with its famed ottoman, originally sold separately. It was only later that Herman Miller decided to offer them as a complete set as standard which is how they have been sold ever since.
Whilst the leather has been carefully updated within the last couple of years, the wood has been given a clean over and looks great. The result is a fantastic example of an Eames Lounge chair and ottoman which is now waiting to be lovingly cared for and used as this set has always been intended.
The label on the underside indicates chair set was produced during the ‘middle point’ for the rosewood era by Herman Miller, it tells you that it was made between 1964 and 1970.
The Eames lounge chair and ottoman set was produced as a luxurious chair and was sold as such, however, its famed build quality and superior materials has meant they have become excellent investment pieces. Being a classic rosewood example, this already sees this particular set gain some points in the investment stakes and though the leather has been refreshed, it should still be a great investment piece to own.
