Product Description

The classic look was retained with this original vintage black and walnut Herman Miller Eames Lounge Chair and ottoman maintaining the iconic lounge chair feel. The change in materials available saw Herman Miller change the original rosewood to walnut. This decision was a success and walnut is still used today!

The beautiful nature of these chairs means that, though similar, no two chair sets are ever exactly the same. The natural finish of the wood grain always allows for very unique finishes and this is seen in this example we have here with its very smooth, golden finish to the wood which really compliments the rich darkness of the leather.

Individual Characteristics

This particular combination is at least 30+ years old and so some natural age related where is to be expected, but the overall condition is very good considering this! The leather is just right in terms of its suppleness and, though there are some marks present on the wood, it too is in a great condition considering its age.

The label on the underside dates this chair and ottoman combination as being built between 1984 and 1999.

Investment Value

The Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman set have become an extremely iconic combination and has been much loved since their first introduction in 1956. This love and interest has very much helped to keep the used market going which has made them worthy investment pieces. That said, it is, much like with many things, down to many contributing factors that determine how highly these sets rate on this scale and this example, being a gently used, all original example should prove to be a good invest piece!
