A superb original early Charles Eames Lounge chair and stool by Herman Miller, beautifully made from rosewood and leather.
The chair was made by Herman Miller in the 1960’s, it is very rare to find these fabulous early models. The stool was actually made by Hille of London for Herman Miller in the 1960’s, Hille were one of the only other companies ever granted the license to make genuine Charles Eames designs. These Hille Herman Miller pieces are also unbelievably rare!
The lounge chair is upholstered in the original black leather, which is in superb condition with very little wear. The cushions are down filled, and the chair is as comfortable as you would expect. The stool has been re-upholstered more recently in black leather.
The rosewood shell cases of the chair and stool have been stripped and re-polished to a very high standard, both are in superb condition throughout. There is just some light wear to be seen on the metal bases. The rosewood grain patterns are stunning, this kind of rosewood simply isn’t available any more, so you only get this on early productions like these.
Both chair and stool have their original Herman Miller labels present beneath the bases.
