Before & After: Eames Walnut Stool
These are such fabulous pieces! Charles & Ray Eames designed three shapes of stools in 1960 for the lobby of the Time Life Building in New York City. They are lathe-turned walnut and can also be used as little side table (although there is a slight curved indentation on top, better suited for a derriere than a teacup).
Oh, and here is the after! It just needed a little time with our talented finishing team!
All three shapes are still in production and sold through Herman Miller.
Edited: we just had a reader reach out to us on the upkeep & maintenance of these, and other, pieces. We did a blog post on this, which you can find here! Thank you!
