OT Eames EA117

  • This is an EA117. BUT, I've looked into it, and it I'm sure it's a licenced copy sold by Habitat in the late 80's / early 90s. All the design details you would expect to find on an authentic chair are present, but there's no logo or signature. Habitat sold these for a very short period before there was a falling out with Herman Miller.

    Anyway, there are a couple of flaws: The leather upholstery has a sag in the seat. The gas cylinder slowly deflates - you sit on it and find yourself going down. When it's down, it's a comfortable lounge chair, but it's too low for my desk. The leather has the number of scrapes that you would expect for its age. The aluminium has lost its polish.

    Looking for £90, collected, from UB2 area.

  • Would love, especially with the Habitat detail, but sadly doubt I could ever get over to collect.

  • E17 is a quick trip round the north circular for me, so happy to run it over to you if you want it.

  • Oh awesome, let me double check with the boss and I'll let you know Tomorrowlands if thats ok?

  • Cool, have PM'd you.

  • great chair.

  • Price drop to £60.

    Possibility of delivery for petrol contribution. Or meet part way.

  • Wife be damned. I’ll take it and hide it.
