AT reader Harry sent us this craigslist find, just posted late this morning: a black leather reproduction Eames-Style Lounge Chair and Ottoman for $835 in Bensenville. Not quite the real thing, but less than a quarter of the price of an authentic new Eames Lounge. He wrote us: "God, I wish I lived there right now, I would be ALL OVER IT! But, since I can't buy it, I figured I would pass it along." Thanks, Harry! Click below for more pictures.
From the seller: "The lounge chair set was used for a photo model and since then has been placed on our showroom floor. The set is a reproduction based on the original design and is in great condition with no wear or tear..."
"...This durable lounge chair is very comfortable and is made of seven-ply molded plywood with black leather upholstery..."
"...The cushions have 6 inch polyurethane foam, the chair has 360 degree swivel, and the whole thing is pretty heavy. One thing you need to know is nothing has wheels on the set. Come in and check it out. You'll like what you see..."
"...The price for the chair and ottoman set is $835 (price firm) with pickup. You'll need a mini van, pickup truck, or station wagon to get this home as it's pretty big. Delivery is also available for $75 extra for anyone up to 40 minutes from O'Hare."

Thanks again, Harry!
