Brown Herman Miller Original Eames ES104 Executive Time Life Lobby Chair
The essence of corporate success and comfort; this all original Herman Miller Eames executive ‘time life’ lobby desk chair finished in brown leather has it all! Literally made to be the lounge chair of the office this sumptuous, height adjustable and tilt functional piece of leather and plywood is absolutely gorgeous!
First introduced in 1960, the series was produced for the ‘Time Life’ building in New York but soon saw popularity in many other business offices. Available as a lounge/reception chair too, which was the first iteration of these wonderful chairs, the extra comfort it offered over the ‘Aluminium series’ ensured they were the premium option for all CEOs, directors, executives and so on and now you have the chance to enjoy the same feel with this wonderful example!
This particular example has been used in an office environment and does show the expected signs of age and wear that goes along with this. This, however, is only surface level/the corners which is to be expected. The arms show some small signs of age with some minor aging showing more on the one arm, but a good nourish with some leather cream will help to bring it back to life slightly.
The label on the underside indicates that this chair is a 80s example produced by Herman Miller.
The Eames Time Life series is by far the most premium and executive office and desk chair in their series and this helps see them retain good investment value. Naturally, age, condition and even the colour and finish of the upholstery are defining factors when it comes to how well they retain or even appreciate in value. Being an all original, leather, example with the original 4-star base, this version should prove to be a good investment piece to own and use.
