Grey with Aubergine Herman Miller Original Eames EA337 Executive Office Chair
An example of a brilliant grey original Eames for Herman Miller EA435 'high back' Aluminium Executive Office Chair, on a height adjustable, 5-star castor base. This version is made from brand new grey leather, as opposed to the original Naugahyde upholstery, giving it a more modernised style at an incredible price. The frame is of a purple aubergine colour, complementing the softer grey tones.
The Aluminium range from the Eames Office was a truly impactful design. Versions of the chairs are still used in many offices across the globe and the lounge-style chair proves to be just as popular. This version is considered as a 'mangement chair', and Ray and Charles wanted the chair to be a statement piece used by the executive whilst simultaneously preventing it from being imposing and creating it to be an inviting, yet prestigious, item; much like its user.
There are no major marks or rips on the leather as it is brand new, and the universal 5 star base is still functioning perfectly. The arms and bases are in a generally good used condition, with its aubergine colour intact. The manual height and tilt adjustability functions still work perfectly.
The label on the underside indicates this is a post 2010 production chair.
The aluminium range has always retained a good value, mainly helped by their original, high, starting price. Combined with an incredible price for both chairs, this pair would be a very good investment!
