Came from the original owner's estate.

Introduced in 1958, Aluminum group chairs feature an elegant and innovative combination of metal and fabric. The design integrates a light aluminum frame and a base with a slim, continuous fabric piece slung between the frame's side ribs. This design combines appropriate firmness with flexibility which allows the chair to respond to each person's shape with remarkably comfortable results. This versatile group of chairs designed by Charles Eames represents an innovation in upholstery technique: pads of Naugahyde and Saran are held in tension between frames of polished aluminum. These lightweight chairs are versatile and rugged enough to serve handsomely indoors or out, in the home, in the office, lobby, or reception area. Eames' fresh, original design approach has resulted in a group of chairs and tables at once elegant. Chair is in excellent original condition and appropriate for age. There is a small 2" section where the seam came out of the aluminum frame (closeup photo available upon request)
