Vintage Eames 670 Lounge Chair & 671 Ottoman in Blue Leather & Walnut & Rosewood for Herman Miller


Fascinating vintage Eames 670 lounge chair and 671 ottoman in bright blue leather for Herman Miller. The seat frame is comprised of walnut, aluminum 5 prong base with black painted lower, and black shaft and the ottoman is comprised of a Rosewood frame, 4 prong base with black painted lower, and black shaft. This is a married set so please see NOTE below for further information. Beautiful condition, keeping in mind that this is vintage and not new so will have signs of use and wear. And this one has wear, so if you like perfect this is not the one for you. The chair frame has been oiled and all parts have been cleaned and assembled. The leather has been repaired and some buttons have been repaired with the leather from under the arms. We have supported the leather by gluing canvas to the underside as there were many scrapes and cuts in the original leather. We also mixed a matching leather coloring to use on the worn spots! It was then oiled and conditioned. The ottoman had some minor chip repairs to the Rosewood shell. Please see photos and zoom in for details. We attempt to portray any imperfections. Circa, 20th Century.

NOTE: The seat, arms, back, and ottoman cushions and ottoman base are all 2nd generation determined because cushions are feather filled, wood is 5 ply rosewood, has screw on feet and not push on, and the clips match second gen clips; however, arms have only 3 upper arm screw holes which is a sign of 1st generation which makes me wonder but?? It’s a puzzle. The chair itself, wood portion and base are 5th generation determined by the walnut 7 ply frame which has a stamped date of March 29, 1999; however, the cushion clips look like 2nd generation clips…More puzzlement! This is definitely a treasure to observe, study, & love!
