So Friday I Picked Up That Awesome Adrian Pearsall Chair Before Work, But Thursday I Managed to Grab This Herman Miller Eames Table Before Work! Status: Losing Sleep Rocks!
I know, it's not as outrageous as the Pearsall chair yesterday, but it's a good solid find. These dining tables never go out of style! This is what I picked up before I stopped by the Salv. Army thrift store and picked up the new set of Franciscan the other day. Hey, I've got the perfect set of chairs to go with it...if anybody's interested!
It still even has it's Herman Miller labels and date stamp on the bottom of the top.
I'm guessing this spent a good part of it's life at IBM! "Think" (It's an IBM thing).
I think this is what is called a "contract base". I love the sculpted shape of the legs
and feet. They are aluminum so If one was so inspired, they could be polished up
to a mirror finish! Also I've seen this table shortened into a coffee table before.
Wow, both the panache of having a Herman Miller Eames piece and the durability
of a Formica top on your coffee table! I think this will be available shortly. It would
also match up nicely with a set of my Saarinen Executive chairs.
