This looks like a really cool sale for those of you into Mid-Century Modern furnishings.  A little bit of everything for sale.

Looks like they know what they've got and prices could be steep.


Nothing really knocks my socks off, but I'll be dipped -- that's a for real legit "Eames" (or at least truly Eames design) chair in the one picture, and probably the most pricey item of the entire lot.

The plywood lounge and ottoman with the brown leather - I believe it's the Plycraft version, not a real HM one.

a real Eames has 5 "legs" not 4. Also the molded armrests are considerably more curved. We had a '66 Eames in Rosewood and brown leather, but got rid of it as amazingly it wasn't nearly as comfortable to sit in for long periods of time when reading as the inexpensive but brilliantly designed and more functional "Poang" chair from Ikea!

Thanks guys.  I know there were various knock-offs, which is why I qualified my remarks with "Eames design."  I'm not familiar enough with the differences to know one from the other, and this is one situation where I'm as guilty as all the eBay and CL sellers who use the term "Eames" too loosely.
