Fresh Finds: A Classic Eames Time Life Lobby Chair, A Rare Woodlux Chair, + More

. Monday, August 16, 2010

A superb vintage example of the Eames Lobby Chair, designed in 1960 for the lobby of New York's Time Life Building. This example is the low profile, premium version of the chair featuring supple black leather, castors, and both tilt and height adjustability. In all-original condition, signed with factory labels.

A rare occasional chair featuring a shaker-influenced composition of wood and papercord, and of the same design genre as chairs by George Nakashima, Edmund Spence for Industria Mueblera SA, and Paul McCobb for O'Hearn.

Crafted by Woodlux Inc., a little-known New York studio that despite being referenced in George Nelson's 1954 book Storage, faded into obscurity.

A pair of classic 1970s American stacked ball lamps in mirror-finish polished chrome.

Many more great finds to come.

All via Modern Love.
