NEW Eames Chairs

In case you missed the announcement, or discounted it as April Fools' Day fodder like I originally did, Herman Miller has released five new colors and two new bases for the Eames Molded Plastic Chairs series. The new colors are aqua sky, java, wafer, greystone, and sparrow and they join existing colors black, red, white, light blue, and lime green. Two bases, the stacking/ganging base and the 4-legged base, will join the existing wire base, rocker base and the recently reintroduced dowel leg base.

These new colors/styles are already available online and it looks like the prices are all pretty universal, regardless of which retailer you go through. Though, YLiving is offering free shipping. Take note that there is an 8 week lead time no matter who you purchase the new chairs through. Looks like we'll have to wait a couple months to get our greasy little fingers on one of these after all!

Please excuse me while I pay some bills...
