Good For You!! I’m surprised it took so long for someone to recognize what is probably the Most Classic Lounge Chair ever produced …..The Eames Lounge Chair (670) and Ottoman (671).

It has a permanent home in the New York Museum Of Modern Art. I Loved this design so much that I purchased one, used, ORIGINAL Brazilian Rosewood, from a Private Source around 1980 for Apprx. $4,000.00

It was designed by the Eames and manufactured by Herman Miller in 1956, and still is today. Of course there are Dozens of knock offs also.

The first ones were made with 5 layers of Brazilian Rosewood until the wood became an Endangered Species. Today they are 7 Layers and a choice of 3 or 4 different types of wood.

The New Ones Retail at “Exclusive Dealers” for about $4/5,500.00 with the Ottoman and depending on the options you choose. An ORIGINAL (Brazilian Rosewood) at Auction will fetch anywhere from $8,000.00 To $10,000.00. Unfortunately mine was “Disposed Of” (Don’t Ask!) a number of years ago.

What makes them so Famous? Well… Dr. House has one in his office on House. Frazier Crane has one on Frazier…LOL.. (Actually they do).

Eames Measure Large

Eames Back Medium

As for the Chair? On Top? Why Bother!! ;-}
