Eames Lounge Available in Sustainable Rosewood
Starting in May, the Eames lounge will once again be available in rosewood, the sustainable kind this time. The rosewood addition of this classic parlor staple designed by Charles and Ray Eames was discontinued by furniture manufacturers Herman Miller and Vitra in the 1980’s—due to the rarity of the wood. But recently, countries seeking sustainable forestry practices came across the Santos Palisander. This rosewood, found in Bolivia and Brazil, is considered environmentally friendly, according to the Eames Foundation. The lounge will be available through ::Eames Office and ::Herman Miller.
