The Eames Lounge 670, better known to many as simply the "Eames Chair", is a design classic. This chair has been in continuous production since 1956, and for many people this chair is the centerpiece of their living room or office.
Unfortunately, with time the rubber "shock mounts" that connect the back and arms to the seat can (or more accurately, will) become brittle, causing the glue on the shock mounts to fail and the upper and lower halves of the chair to separate.
The good news is that this is a fairly common problem - what I tend to tell people is that it is not so much an "if"-problem as a "when"-problem. (Think about it like the timing belt in you car.) The better news is that the repair is relatively straightforward. Essentially, the old shock mounts need to be removed and replaced with new ones. Once the new mounts are in place your chair should be ready for another few decades of use.
If you are interested in having your Eames chair repaired, please call or email to inquire about repair costs and scheduling. Other services available include cushion-button replacement, plywood and veneer repair, aluminum swivel-base polishing, swivel bushing replacement (noticeable if your chair has a funny "clunk" when you move it), and complete reupholstery.
One thing- unfortunately at this time I am not set up to ship or receive chairs via carrier - deliveries must be made to the shop in person. Pickup and drop-off within the Houston area may be arranged for an additional fee.
