If you are looking for an iconic Mid-Century Modern chair to grace your home and hold in high regard…..you’ve found it! This is what has been dubbed First Generation of this fabulous chair. The defining characteristics are: Rope Edge, Larger Shock Mounts, Type of Glide, Lemon Yellow Original Color, Translucent Fiberglass, and Checkerboard Zenith/Herman Miller Label. To add to its desirability this example is the lounge chair version with an X-base. Or, commonly called a LAX chair. Its condition is wonderful and original. It does have rust stains in the seat that we have not been able to remove. But, I don’t know if they should be. I love the history that comes along with vintage furniture and I can imagine the years this chair was enjoyed on the patio where water was able to sit in it for long periods of time to create this stain. I imagine the fun and enjoyment derived by sitting in this chair and the joy Eames’ would feel knowing they had in part provided that. Charles and Ray Eames, iconic husband and wife design team, designed the molded fiberglass chair in 1948 for the International Competition of Low-Cost Furniture Design held by the Museum of Modern Art. Production began in 1950 by Zenith Plastics for Herman Miller and the chairs were offered for sale that year. That same year the Museum of Modern Art placed it in its permanent collection. We know you want this incredible piece of furniture design history. Make it yours.
