Mid Century Mondays // 47

This weekend I captured my white whale, the Herman Miller 670 lounge chair by Charles Eames.  I have been searching for one of these ever since I began buying and selling mid century furniture.  Usually they are quite pricey because they are such an iconic chair that everyone know what they are.  The two reasons that I was able to acquire it for a reasonable price is that it is missing the ottoman and there is a break in the armrest.   The good news is that the wood chair shell is made of rosewood which is rare and sought after.  I am about to get a quote to find out what it would cost to have it repaired.  Even in its current state they seem to sell for $1200-$1300.
 Here is a picture of the chair propped up.  Because of the break in the armrest the chair is not currently assembled.

 Fortunately the break in the armrest did not effect the rosewood veneer.  Once it is fixed the repair should not be noticeable.

If you ever see or find and Eames chair these labels are a good way to authenticate them.

 Not everything I found this week was an authentic Herman Miller piece.  This coffee table is a replica of the design by Isamu Noguchi for Herman Miller.  SOLD.

 Although I have been steering away from industrial pieces lately lockers are always a popular item at Hawthorne Vitnage.  I especially liked the feet on this one and that the shelves continue through both sides to provide lots of storage

 Winter is the time when lighting sells best in Portland.  I couldn't pass up this cute little vintage desk lamp.

 Last but not least was this Eames "style" lounge chair and ottoman that I found on the side of the road.  It need lots of work but I think that we can get it back into working order.

What did you find this week?
