Christmas 2015: 24 things Santa should bring me #10

Bungalow5_Herman MIller_3sixteen

Every day until Christmas Eve (Dec. 24th), I will share one thing each day that I would love to see Santa bring me for Christmas. I am sure there are one or two things that you want too. Happy December 10th.

I think I have said it once or twice before, but my ultimate dream chair is Ray and Charles Eames lounge chair originally produced by Herman Miller, it is a hallmark of the Mid-Century Modern movement. As I do love the original colour the most, I have to say that the example New York’s 3sixteen has done, it pretty rad. They paired natural vegetable-tanned leather with Herman Miller’s iconic hand-oiled santos palisander wood veneer shell… Just oh so handsome.

Unfortunately, as far as I know, this is a one-off piece that 3sixteen will keep to document the patination process.

    For mig personligt er det for let købt, lidt ligesom Paul Smith stolene fra Carl Hansen og Fritz Hansen. 3Sixteen er ekstremt dygtige til, at lave tøj og har en virkelig stærk æstetisk identitet i alt deres design, så hvorfor ikke føre det videre til stolen.

    Hvis du gerne vil have en en stol magen til, så find en brugt og få den ompolstret, det kan gøres for under 15k.

      Dog skal Herman Miller have point for endelig at lave noget, bare lidt, andet end de plejer. Jeg vil have den originale!

    I loved this chair when I had it in my home. The only problem was that every time I sat down to read a book… I fell asleep. It is crazy comfortable. I love but cannot say the same thing about my PK 22’s I have now. Maybe I should consider the Eames again.

      The comfort is very different. PK22 is a beautiful chair too, but not as compfy as Eames.
