Good Questions: Used Eames Management Chair Resource?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

Where can I buy a reasonably priced used pair of Eames aluminum group managment or softpad chairs in the NYC area?

I don’t mind if the chairs look quite worn, as long as they work well it adds character. I’ve long been in love (bordering on obsession) with this particular chair, but have been unable to find them locally aside from HM reproductions at DWR and the occasional ebay auction.

Thank you, Anthony

Dear Anthony,

This is for the crowd. We think watching eBay and Craigslist is probably the best way to go. Although we have heard of a number of good resources, which don’t have very low prices:
Highbrow Furniture
Retro Modern
We have also heard of people getting badly ripped off. There are many people obsessed with this chair, it seems.
