I can’t believe that the hubs and I now own an authentic piece of Herman Miller Furniture. We are the proud new owners of the Eames Lounger. But unfortunately it is still in Michigan along with the rest of our belongings. We acquired the piece from a former tenant. This chair — although just a chair — has been on our life list for some time; not just because I tend to have an affinity for things I can’t afford, but particularly because we lived all of 30 seconds from HM headquarters, the same street in fact. We both love mid-century modern design and this piece is such an icon.
I’m glad to know there are so many others out there just as
obsessed interested as we are. In fact, there is a new and seemingly comprehensive book about the Eames story. There is a great write-up about it (with more pictures) over at Yatzer.
