Last week was a good week in the acquisitions department. We began with an Eames shell (which quite frankly has seen better days) and come Friday we'd gained an Eames lounger and ottoman (which quite frankly have both seen better days). Unfortunately we're in between cameras at the moment, so no snaps of our own to show you .... but these images provide a fairly good likeness in terms of condition - except our 670/671 were produced by Hille of London Ltd under a licence granted by Herman Miller, so our bases differ slightly from those below. So, the total chair count at chez chairsmith - excluding footstools, ottomans and the like - currently stands at 31. THIRTY ONE .... that's completely ridiculous. Perhaps we should open a shop. Now there's an idea!
