An exceptional vintage Charles and Ray Eames Boardroom table and chair set with original Vitra table and 8 dark grey leather Herman Miller soft pad chairs.
Dating from the mid 1980’s this is a truly rare and beautiful example of a complete Boardroom set that would have graced the offices of numerous powerhouse firms such as IBM throughout the 80’s and 90’s. It features the original veneered wide oval table top (I believe it’s Black Ash) that comes complete with a rare pure black base and central plastic covered utility aperture. It’s labelled by Vitra under one of the main supports as shown and is in excellent vintage condition with only minor marks here and there commensurate with age and use.
It's matched to 8 original dark grey leather Herman Miller aluminium swivel base soft pad chairs with impressed marks in the base – the dark grey leather adds to their rarity. The soft pad chair is an icon of 20th Century design and is still produced today as it remains as one of the most comfortable office task chairs you’ll ever sit in. The chairs were offered for purchase with or without arms and suited different purposes. The chairs with arms were generally used as desk chairs but the chairs without arms were more used for conference and meeting room settings as one can slide in and out of them more easily. They are in well used condition as can be evidenced from the photos. As such they have age related marks, a few dents in the seat, little knocks on the corners, creases and wear but overall this results in a general patina that adds to their appeal – they clearly have a history, but show it well. The bases are in very good condition for their age with just minor scuffing and light scratches and knocks but with no tarnish and naturally, as they are cast Aluminium, no signs of rust.
If you’re looking for an impressive and classic Boardroom or meeting room table and chairs set then look no further. The obvious vintage nature of the set immediately adds gravitas and age to any setting that new mass produced furniture would never come close to. It would also work well as a funky, more industrial style home dining table.
