After 10 years as a studio prop and door jab, I have finally had the Eames 670 restored to a usable condition.
There is the obvious comparison with motorcycles.
'Always looks good but much better used'.
When you look after and care for older things of a particular quality they give you something undefinable back.
I sat in this chair for the first time in 10 years today.
A very rewarding experience indeed.
