The Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman were designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1956, and were introduced on national television (The Today Show) by Herman Miller company. The chair became a highly visible emblem of Herman Miller quality and innovation. This iconic and classic furniture is still highly popular in 21st century.
Unfortunately, due to the nature of the original materials certain parts of the chair, which are made out of rubber and known as "shock mounts" dry off after so many years of use and the back of the chair get disconnected from its seat. This is a very common problem with older chairs. The only solution to this problem is replacing of old shock mounts with new ones.
For more than 20 years Renaissance Furniture Restoration company takes care of this kind of problems. We also refinish wooden shells, replace an old plastic swivel bushing with new one made out of brass, replace cushions and armrests, etc. For your chair inspection and evaluation of the problem please contact us.
