    Herman Miller decided to make a limited edition Eames Lounge chair for their chair’s 50th Anniversary. Marketing effort, blah blah blah. But the cool part is that they offer a Brazillian rosewood version for about $850 more, bringing to total price to about $4000.
    If you are planning on getting one already, the $850 premium is a real bargin. The veneer is called santos palisander. My walnut one is not bad already, but the grain on this one is abslutely stunning. Herman Hiller hasn’t make the rosewood version since the late 70s, making this even more desirable. It is also what Charles and Ray Eames intented the chair to look.
    I was considering swaping my walnut one for a rosewood one. But between the buy and sell I would have to pay about $2200 for it. Probably not worth it. But I would totally do it for $1500.
