SOLD Patent Pending Eames Aluminum Group Lounge with Ottoman
Listed for sale is a 1958 Eames aluminum group lounge chair with ottoman. The lounge chair and ottoman both have Patent Pending stamps, indicating that it was produced in the first year that the design was manufactured. It is in phenomenal condition for its age with original charcoal naugahyde and black enameled arms in perfect condition. The chair and ottoman are an original matching pair that are in the most iconic upholstered configuration with the charcoal naugahyde and black arms. It is also the taller, tilt/swivel version of this chair. Its mechanism still functions perfectly and shows no cracks or separations in the aluminum. The naugahyde shows little to no wear, aside from the front sides, which simply appear to be worm slightly more heavily. It has the original herman miller stamp imbedded within the aluminum seat bracket and reads "Patent Pending."
This pair came from the office of a department head at Harvard University. The pair lived in the university office of this individual. If desired, this pair can be sent with provenance from the family that owned the set. A sticker from the company these chairs were bought from is still present on the ottoman.
Additional pieces can also be found in my other items.
